Omega3 DHA eggs?
« on: October 29, 2010, 04:07:40 am »
What are DHA Omega3 Eggs?
Today I got me 60 eggs like that not sure if organic but it says it has alot omega3 and DHA because
they feed their chickens with riched omega 3 mixture of seeds.
The label says:
100Gram egg
OMEGA 3 500 Mg
DHA  110Mg
EPA 4 Mg
ALA 350mg

What is that? I never saw omega3 eggs or anything.
The only thing I know is that the ratio omega 6 and omega 3 has to be 1:1?
So my question is are those eggs healthier than regular eggs?
or to be more accurate what is the differences and health benefits?

Most omega-3 eggs that you buy in the store are produced by chickens who are given flax meal and/or fish meal in addition to grain. They're better than eggs from chickens who get nothing but grain.

But ideally, try to get eggs from a farmer who lets the birds roam on pasture, eating bugs, worms, and greens. They will have plenty of omega-3, and taste 100x better than the store-bought omega-3 eggs.

AVOID Omega-3 Eggs!

I would STRONGLY encourage you to avoid all omega-3 eggs as they are actually LESS healthy for you. Typically the animals are fed poor-quality sources of omega-3 fats that are already oxidized. But even if they were healthy, it turns out that omega-3 eggs do not last anywhere near as long as non-omega-3 eggs.
got this from here http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2007/10/20/beware-of-misleading-omega-3-claims.aspx
though I've seen him recommend against omega3 eggs lots of times http://www.google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=&=&q=site%3A+mercola.com+eggs+omega3&btnG=Google+Search&aq=f&oq=

I am wondering why it is so hard to find pasture raised eggs fed fishmeal instead of corn and soy and get the best of both worlds when it comes to eggs?  Supposedly there are sustainable sources of fishmeal that can be used for chicken feed.
