What Are Pasture-Raised Eggs?

If “pasture-raised” stuck out in the list of egg types mentioned above, you may be asking yourself, “What does pasture-raised mean?” It’s simple — what makes eggs pasture-raised is the fact that hens living on a pasture produced them.

Even though modern chickens have evolved from their ancestral cousins over the years, hens are still near- insatiable omnivores. If they lived in the wild, chickens would still eat almost any food they had access to. When chickens are raised on pasture, their experience closely mimics how they’d live in the wild — and their diet reflects it.

Instead of being fed what would probably be a corn-based diet in a cage or cage-free environment, pasture-raised hens enjoy the outdoors as they feed on natural grass, seeds and insects. In general, pasture-raised eggs are laid by chickens that enjoy an outdoor lifestyle that’s cleaner and less stressful than alternative environments. These hens also enjoy plenty of fresh air and exposure to the sun.

SAUDER’S GOLD EGGS

In the past, many people believed that eggs were not a healthy part of a diet, but research has shown that eggs are in fact an excellent food to include in your diet because they have a number of health benefits. For instance, eggs have zero carbohydrates and are a great source of protein. You can also eat them on their own or include them in a huge variety of different foods.

Sauder’s Gold Eggs have even more health benefits than conventional eggs, and what sets them apart from conventional eggs is their added nutritional value. These eggs have higher levels of important nutrients — omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, and vitamins D and E. The reason for this nutritional boost is Sauder’s Gold Feed. All of our pasture-raised hens eat this unique vegetarian feed that is made from all-natural ingredients and is free of hormones and antibiotics.

Our bodies do not produce omega-3 naturally, but it’s crucial for good health. We have to either find foods that do have it or take supplements. A great, easy way to get a healthy serving of omega-3 fatty acids is with Sauder’s Gold Eggs. Would you rather eat a delicious meal or spend extra money on a supplement?

Omega-3 has other benefits, too. It helps with circulation and can help prevent some chronic illnesses, like heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. Lutein promotes better eye health and can help prevent colon cancer, breast cancer, and type 2 diabetes. Vitamin D makes helps make your bones and teeth stronger, and vitamin E helps your immune system and promotes healthier skin and eyes.

Compared to conventional eggs, Sauder’s Gold Eggs have 276 mg more of omega-3, 455 mg more of lutein and 3 mg more of vitamin D.
