For the 19th year in a row, Eggland’s Best has been recognized by Chefs in America with “The American Masters of Taste” Gold Medal Seal for being the only egg with superior taste, freshness and appearance. This prestigious award spans the Eggland’s Best portfolio, honoring EB Classic Eggs, Organic Eggs, Cage-Free Eggs and Hard-Cooked Eggs. Each product was blindly judged and named superior tasting compared to other products within its category.
“At Chefs in America, year over year we are pleased that Eggland’s Best eggs continue to rise to the top,” said Christina Washington, VP of Endorsements for Chefs in America. ”Eggland’s Best consistently receives the highest scores from our culinary experts because the brand always delivers superior taste and freshness compared to other eggs in the category.”

Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs contain six times more vitamin D, 25 percent less saturated fat, more than double the omega-3s, 10 times more Vitamin E and more than double the Vitamin B12. The superior nutrition of Eggland’s Best is due to its proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E. In addition, independent testing has revealed that Eggland’s Best eggs have stronger shells than ordinary eggs, which leads to less breakage and helps them stay fresher longer. Eggland’s Best’s patented method of production and verification ensures that every Eggland’s Best egg has these superior qualities.
