Egg Nutrition Facts You Might Not Know
Eggs owe their popularity to the fact that they are high in protein, extremely versatile, and inexpensive. An egg contains antioxidants plus 13 essential vitamins and minerals. Eggs can also help you maintain a healthy weight and healthy brain function. That’s a lot of goodness in a little package!
One large chicken egg (52 mL) is approximately 22 mL of yolk and 30 mL of white and contains:
A Valuable Source of Protein
For many, the real value of eggs is that they are high in protein, a significant fact for vegetarians. The USDA recommends adults eat .066 grams of protein for every two pounds of body weight, and the Mayo Clinic recommends you get 10 to 35 percent of your total daily calories from protein. Athletes, pregnant women, and those recovering from surgery have higher protein needs. Be sure to talk with your doctor if you have questions about how much protein you need per day.

The 2015 version of Dietary Requirements for Americans states that there is “no appreciable relationship between consumption of dietary cholesterol and serum (blood) cholesterol, consistent with the AHA/ACC (American Heart Association / American College of Cardiology) report” and that “cholesterol is not a nutrient of concern for over consumption.”

Cage free vs. Organic vs. Free Range vs. Vegetarian
Your local grocery may carry a dizzying array of eggs. What’s the difference?
Cage free – Cage free eggs come from chickens that are raised in open barns or open floor systems instead of in cages. These birds have bedding made of natural materials like straw or pine shavings and they have access to perches and nest boxes. However, cage free hens may still live in close quarters with other hens.
Free range – Free-
Organic – Organic eggs may be laid by hens raised in close quarters in cage systems, but the birds eat organic feed free of genetically modified grains and don’t receive vaccines or antibiotics.
