Claims on eggs cartons can be VERY misleading.

Bird flu chickensFree range eggs… pasture-raised… organic… added lutein… added omega-3…

So which ones are the best?

The simple answer is: you want the eggs than come from the healthiest hens possible.

In other words, hens need to have access to sunshine and be able to eat the omnivorous diet they’re supposed to. Yes, hens are in fact omnivores (mostly insectivores), and do not usually eat the grains most farmers feed them with nowadays.

Eggs raised this way (“pastured eggs”) pack a ton more nutrition than regular factory eggs.
