It’s come round (or oval at least) again! Yes, it’s World Egg Day!
Once more we’re proud to support the special day when egg lovers around the world come together in celebration of these elliptical packages of loveliness.
According to nutritionists, eggs are one of the most nutrient-dense natural food sources. And as any chef knows, they’re also the most versatile. So they’re basically a great big, yummy vitamin pill – the highest quality protein you can buy, with a cocktail of the minerals and essential vitamins we all need for a healthy diet.
Just look at the goodness packed into these little health bombs: the yolks alone are one of the few naturally good sources of Vitamin D, for healthy bones, teeth and muscles.
There’s also Vitamin A - for the healthy development of the body’s cells, including skin and eye tissue; Vitamin B12 - for the for the immune system and formation of red blood cells; Choline - vital for the proper function of nerves and muscles, and loads more we haven’t got space for here – but there’s plenty of space in an egg for!
What’s more, an egg is one of the most environmentally sustainable and affordable animal-sources protein on the planet - and its goodness can be absorbed by anyone from newborns (it’s great for early brain development) to old timers (eyes, bones, heart and brain function).
And on a global scale, they’re among the most valuable sources of income in rural areas around the world, as well as one of the most sustainable and bio-efficient forms of farming.
In every important respect, eggs definitely bring home the bacon! So, celebrate World Egg Day with Hartmann - Friday 8th October 2021.
