A hen’s diet and environment can have a huge impact on the eggs that they produce. Whether it’s a veg-a-fed, organic or nutri-fresh fertile egg, we at Chino Valley Ranchers offer a wide variety of egg options for our customers. One of our newer options we’ve recently added is the soy-free organic egg. Not sure what that is exactly? Here are some facts about soy-free organic eggs to help you get acquainted with them.
1. These eggs are perfect for those who typically can’t eat eggs.
Oftentimes, those who are allergic to eggs are actually just allergic to the soy that is in the eggs, not the egg itself. Many customers have found that by eating soy-free eggs, they are able to easily consume and digest the eggs perfectly fine.
2. Hens producing soy-free eggs are on a special diet.
A typical diet for a hen producing regular eggs usually contains a good amount of soy. In order to produce an egg without soy, Chino Valley Ranchers knew that we’d have to switch up the hens’ diet. After working with a nutritionist and doing the proper research, we’ve found a mixture of organic grains and seeds that provide the nutrients the hen needs, while also leaving soy out of the eggs.
3. Soy-free organic eggs contain more of Omega-3.
Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat that is supposed to be better on your heart and arteries over other types of fat. In fact, research has shown that Omega-3 fatty acids can oftentimes be attributed to lowering the risk of a stroke or heart attack. This is because this type of fatty acid lowers your chance for a blood clot in your arteries.
It is clear that soy-free organic eggs have a lot to offer consumers. If you are interested in learning more about Chino Valley Ranchers’ soy-free organic eggs, contact us today! We produce high quality and great tasting eggs we know you’ll love.
