omega 6 and eggs
« on: January 14, 2012, 08:50:54 am »
Hi everyone. My question is whether the omega 6 content in eggs is a negative factor in keeping their dietary volume high, I have been eating 1 doz. per day for over 1 year now and would like to reduce the amount of meat I consume. Would anyone think either the current level too high omega-6 FFAs and/or that increasing to 18 per day would be too much on the high side? Please let me know whats up with this issue(eg. health problems)...

How much omega 6 and omega 3 depends totally on what the chickens are fed. A chicken's natural diet of bugs is actually pretty high in omega 3. If you raise your own chickens you can feed them seeds high in omega 3 as well. There are some eggs sold in the store here that make a big deal about feeding their chickens flax seeds which makes the omega 3 content of their eggs higher.
