What's in a dozen?
 
Eggs are produced by nature
and not processed according to
a formula; therefore, their exact
nutrient content may differ from egg to egg.
In general, however, a one-dozen carton of
Large eggs will feature a nutritional label that
resembles the following.
 
Nutrition Facts Serving Size: 1 egg (50g), Servings: 12, Amount Per Serving:Calories 70, Fat Cal. 45, Total Fat 5g (7% DV), Sat. Fat 1.5g (8% DV),Trans Fat 0g, Cholest. 185mg (60% DV), Sodium 70mg (2% DV), Total Carb. 0g (0% DV), Protein 6g (13% DV), Vitamin A (6% DV), Vitamin C (0% DV),Calcium (2% DV), Iron (4% DV). Not a significant source of Dietary Fiber or Sugars. Percent Daily Values (DV) are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
 
The 1990 Nutrition Education and Labeling Act requires most foods, including eggs, to carry a nutrition label. Current labels express nutrients as a percentage of Daily Values (DVs) for a 2,000-calorie diet, rather than a percentage of the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowances (U.S. RDAs).
