Decoding egg labels

 

egg labels

 

Ever feel confused when buying eggs? It all gets so complicated. Should you buy organic? What about cage free? and what does free range really mean?

  1. Free range means that the chickens are free to roam outdoors. They are fed with GMO grain.
  2. Cage free means that they are not confined to battery cages but they have no access to the outdoors. Cage free chickens are also fed GMO grain.
  3. Free run means that they are only free to roam indoors and may be exposed to overcrowded conditions. They are fed GMO grain.
  4. Organic eggs come from chickens fed a vegetarian diet. The chickens are antibiotic, pesticide and GMO free. They are also hormone free.
