Free Range Eggs - Laid With Love brand (6pc)
The Eggstra special health benefits of Lutein
Laid With Love eggs are produced by hens fed on a diet rich in Lutein – a powerful natural anti-oxidant which is extracted from Marigolds. Lutein occurs naturally in food like kale, carrots and corn, and eggs, with the lutein in eggs being most easily absorbed by the body due to the natural fat content of each egg.
Lutein has lots of health benefits – For years, research has indicated health benefits of Lutein – fighting everything from cancer prevention to eyesight problems and ageing. It’s good for your heart, brain and eyes (people take Lutein supplements to help prevent age-related macular degeneration)
Laid With Love® eggs contain more Lutein than standard eggs, which means there are even more anti-oxidants– so they’re even healthier for you too.…. and by donating 2p per dozen to support cancer research, it makes them taste even better!
Laid with Love® hens are fed extra Lutein in their diet, so there is more Lutein in their eggs. That’s great news – because it means there are even more anti-oxidants in Laid with Love eggs than there are in standard eggs. You can tell when you have a Lutein rich egg because it will have a very intense yellow yolk and it comes in a Laid with Love® egg box. They’re fantastic when used in cake recipes too.
You can take the yolk test to see and taste the difference. Simply crack a Laid with Love egg into a cup, whisk it and compare it to a standard egg. You’ll see the difference and we think they taste better too!
