What's the difference between brown and white eggs?









NUTRITIONALLY-SUPERIOR
The Eggland's Best commitment is to produce a more nutritious egg, which is also the finest, freshest, and most delicious egg possible. From the unique Eggland's Best hen feed to strict quality standards, you can be confident that any egg with the EB stamp on the shell is a nutritionally superior egg that delivers farm-fresh taste. Not only do Egg-Land's Best eggs taste great, they are higher in Vitamin E, Omega 3 and Lutein and lower in cholesterol and saturated fat than a regular egg. Eggland's Best classic shell eggs are available in 12 count Large and Extra Large varieties as well as 18 count Large and Extra Large varieties.
WHITE
This popular egg type is typically laid by a beautiful all-white chicken breed called the White Leghorn. High in nutritional value, our popular white egg brands include Becky, Santa Rosa, Nulaid, and Cal Egg. We also pack and distribute many store brand labels sold in Northern California.
BROWN
Brown eggs are laid by red-brown feathered breeds like the Rhode Island Red, New Hampshire, and Plymouth Rock. Slightly larger than white-feathered hens, these breeds often require more feed and are priced slightly higher as a result. Brown eggs are just as delicious and nutritious as white eggs. We offer both large and extra large brown eggs in our Barnstar brand.
CERTIFIED ORGANIC
Our free roaming hens are raised on 100% certified organic vegetarian feed from the day they are born. The feed is grown on land free of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides for at least 3 years. An independent company certifies that all California State Organic and U.S. Department of Agriculture requirements are met. Our Barnstar and Horizon Organic brand eggs are some of the best on the market.  We also offer organic eggs enhanced with Omega 3 fatty acids for extra nutritional value.
