Eggland's Best has announced that the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office has granted a first-of-its-kind patent only to Eggland's Best for its method of producing a better shell egg.
This patent, A Method for Production of a Verified Enriched Shell Egg, confirms that Eggland's Best eggs are produced in a method that enriches their nutritional content.
According to the company, Eggland's Best's patented method of production and verification ensures that every EB egg has superior qualities, including high nutritional content, a reduced risk of Salmonella Enteritidis and other exceptional egg and shell qualities.
This patent demonstrates and verifies that the EB process is superior, resulting in the highest quality egg.
In a release the company states that, 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, ten times more vitamin E and more than double the vitamin B12.
The company says that the nutritional profile 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.
