Ordinary eggs are good
Eggs are a powerhouse food – a concentrated package of high quality natural proteins, vitamins, minerals and some essential elements you require in a balanced diet. Eggs are one of the few foods that contain vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin. In fact ordinary two eggs, 100g serve, will provide about 16% of your daily Vitamin D requirements (RDI). And eggs contain the highest quality complete food protein available.
But our egg is incredible
We have researched a special patented diet for our hens, a balanced diet boosted with natural supplements rich in good Omega fats and certain essential vitamins. Ecoeggs are an ideal food for anyone who generally cares about their health and what they eat. Ecoeggs contain increased levels of Omega 3, Vitamin E, B12 and Vitamin D compared to an ordinary egg, as well as being a good source of Folate, Selenium, and Iodine. Two ecoeggs provide 28% AI (Adequate Daily Intake) of Omega-3.
We think a healthy, happy hen lays a healthier, better tasting egg.

|EPA, DPA, DHA
ecoeggs contain more than 2.5 the EPA, DPA and DHA of ordinary eggs (0.11% vs 0.28%).
ecoeggs contain nearly 5 times the Vitamin E of ordinary eggs (2.3% vs 11.0%).
Ecoeggs contain 2.5 times Vitamin B12 of ordinary eggs (0.08% vs 0.2%).
Nutritional values in this table for a standard egg are based information published by AECL in 2013. Figures refer to the edible portion.

Currently there are no official RDI values for Omega 3, but the NHMRC instead recommends an Adequate Intake, which in Australia is 1570 mg/day for an average adult. Source NHMRC.
