What is the criteria you consider while buying eggs? Is it the price? Is it the quality? What do you consider good quality eggs?
You may think you are buying first quality eggs if on the box it's written category A, but what actually matters is what is written on the egg 😀
Look at this photo:
The first number indicates which category the eggs belong to. In this case, it's number 2.
There are 4 categories of egg quality:
- 0- the chicken was raised in its natural conditions and was fed with organic food.
- 1- shows that the chicken had good conditions, meaning it can spend time outside and have a cage of at least 4 square meters, but was fed less natural foods.
- 2- the chicken was raised in huge halls without seeing daylight.
- 3- indicates a chicken raised in a space smaller than a A4 sheet of paper. Food for the chickens is often genetically modified and contains vitamins and medicines. It's sad to imagine how they live..
This is important because if the chicken is raised in inadequate conditions, they will be stressed and they produce cortisone and adrenaline. These two hormones accumulate in the meat and eggs of chicken and can be easily transmitted to humans when we consume these products.
So, sometimes when we feel stressed without obvious reasons it may be because of the eggs 🙂
Well, I hope you found these informations useful.
