One organic, grass-fed egg contains an array of 13 vitamins and minerals, along with 6 grams of quality protein and all nine essential amino acids! Don’t throw out the yolk, but doesn’t that yolk contain a bunch of cholesterol you might ask? Actually, cholesterol has an incredibly important function in the body, as it is necessary to produce vitamin D, steroid hormones, and bile acids, along with being an integral component of cell membranes!
The yolk is also where selenium, choline, zinc, iron, riboflavin, phosphorus and fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and E are housed, along with carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin responsible for the orange/yellow colour of the yolk, which aids the absorption of these important nutrients. The key is ensuring the quality of eggs you purchase; always seek local, organic, free-range and grass-fed as opposed to grain-fed, caged eggs. If the hen has lived a healthy, stress-free life, it only makes sense that eggs of higher nutritional quality will be produced.
