Frequently Asked Questions on Eggs
Which is the best egg to eat?
Eggs are rich in nutrients and quality proteins that can greatly improve your kids’ health. The best eggs for your kids are probably pastured eggs laid by chickens raised in a natural environment and given a more natural diet. After pastured eggs, omega-3-enriched eggs are also good choices for your kids.
How do you store eggs?
In supermarkets, eggs are already stored in cartons or on separate shelves. This should also be the case when you store eggs at home. Keep them in their original cartons and at 40°F or less. Keep them on an inside shelf or the part of your refrigerator which is not opened and closed frequently.
What color are eggs naturally?
While some eggs appear to be a little brown, it is more natural for eggs to be white. Eggs with other colors, like off-white or brownish-white, may have pigments on their shells when they travel through the mother hen.
How long do eggs last?
Egg cartons usually have a best-before date which indicates when they are good to use. Generally, eggs can still be cooked within three to five weeks after refrigeration. To be safe, always check the smell and texture of the eggs before cooking or adding them to other ingredients!
