Post Vitamin D in eggs
"pastured eggs have anywhere between 4 to 6 times as much vitamin D as typical supermarket eggs".

Hi Crinia....

Little Story: We would buy freerange from shops and then we started buying freerange from a lady down the road who had a few chook roaming her backyard when we lived in town

BUT until we moved out of town and started bringing to the table our own "roaming ferals" eggs did we realise there was such a difference in just the look and taste of a cooked egg :?

Grant you, you need two of our eggs to cover a piece of toast because the yolks stay standing and the whites just 'sits' there - never spreading in the pan.
We threw the egg rings out many years ago. No need for them.

We have also stopped going out for Sunday brunch too.
Hubby hates the running, watery and flavourless texture of the yolks in the eggs served in cafes that much now.

So there would have to be a HUGE difference in the vitamins and minerals you would be expecting to receive from eggs when experiencing such a difference in what should be 'just an egg' - you would think :hmm

I guess its like people - if you eat natural food you generally are healthier as opposed to eating processed food :)

The chicken can only put into the egg what goes into their diet. Just as you can only get as much nutrition out of your veges as the plant can access. That's where commercially grown fail in that the fertilisers they use tend to focus on the big 3: nitrogen, potassium and phosphate, and tend to neglect the just as important micro nutrients.

That's right GG.

In computing terms they refer to it as garbage in / garbage out.
