About Our Eggs
We source and provide New Zealand and Singaporean barn laid eggs, with the difference being their diet and the breed of hens laying the eggs. (The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore do not allow for hens to roam free outdoors for fear of encouragement of bird flu transmission).
Why do we choose these eggs? Other than their orangey yolks (due to the chickens having a diet higher in beta-carotene) being much more tasty, it is also because hens raised in such an environment are both happier and better for us. As they are raised in a less confined space (or simply outdoors), they are less stressed and aggressive, and that translate to less sickly hens that require less antibiotics. In terms of nutrients, they are many times better than regular eggs.
To give you an idea, they have approximately 1/3 less cholestrol. two times more Omega-3 fatty acids, 3 times more vitamin E, 7 times more pro-vitamin A beta-carotene, 1/4 less saturated fat, 6 times more vitamin D, More vitamin B ,Lutein and zeaxanthin (for benefit of eyes). Yes we know that they cost more than the regular eggs, but do trust us, the taste and nutrients difference is huge. (Our Personal Favorite: Go for the NZ Barn Laid Eggs!)
