Eggs are part of a great breakfast and full of good things for your body. You may not have noticed that yolks vary in size and color. Why? It’s all in how the birds were treated in their lifetime, their opportunity for mobility and how they were fed.
Big Difference When They’re Side By Side
The pasteurized egg has those bubbles around it. It looks like the egg white is thicker, and it is. There is a natural coating called a “bloom” that protects the egg and can keep it fresh for a week or even two! Commercial eggs are stripped of this wonderful stuff and replaced with mineral oil.

Most people picture chickens pecking at grain. It’s not often that you see chickens in commercials eating grass but that is the best food for them. They love weeds, actually.
Quality Varies A Lot And It Shows
If you grew up in the city, chances are you have never tried eggs birthed by happy, healthy chickens. “Free-range” is a bit misleading a title because these chickens differ greatly from their less fortunate, more commercial counterparts.
