What makes free range eggs different ?
What are free range eggs ?
Free range eggs come from chickens that are allowed to roam freely outdoors, and have access to ample space to move around and engage in natural behaviours.
There are several key differences between free range eggs and other types of egg
-Nutritional Value: Free range eggs are generally considered to be more nutritious than other types of eggs. This is because the chickens that produce free range eggs have access to a more varied diet, which can lead to eggs with higher levels of beneficial nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, and beta-carotene.
-Animal Welfare: Free range eggs are produced using more ethical and humane farming practices. Chickens that produce free range eggs are able to live in a more natural and spacious environment, which allows them to engage in natural behaviours like dust bathing, foraging, and roosting.
-Environmental Impact: Free range farming can have a lower environmental impact than other types of farming. This is because free range farms typically use more sustainable farming practices, such as rotating crops and using natural fertilisers. Additionally, free range chickens can help to control pests and weeds, which can reduce the need for harmful pesticides and herbicides.
-Taste and Texture: Free range eggs are often praised for their superior taste and texture. This is because the chickens that produce free range eggs have access to a more varied diet, which can lead to eggs with a richer flavour and firmer texture.
