Which Eggs Are Best? 什麼蛋才是最好的?

Have you ever found yourself standing in the supermarket, confused as to which eggs are the best to buy for your health? Follow this guide and you can make the best choice as to which are more advantageous for you!

你是否有過這樣的經歷,在超市眾多的蛋類之中,不知道哪一種才是對健康最為有益的。現在,根據這篇文章的指引,你一定可以選到最適合的那一個!

 

Unfortunately, many people are misled by labels when it comes to supermarket eggs. When people see “free-range” they automatically assume the quality of egg has to be better as the chicken has been treated more humanely and had access to the outdoors.

很多消費者都被超市中蛋類的營養標籤誤導,以為散養牧場一定會產出最好的蛋,但事實並非如此,在很多天然牧場,雞也是人工飼養的。

 

Think again! According to the law, “free-range” doesn’t really mean anything. Healthy eggs are a result of the hen having consistent access to the outdoors, sunlight, natural food, and green grass. However, the label “free-range” guarantees none of this.

再想一想!天然牧場可並不能代表什麼,健康的蛋類是在完全天然的環境中產出的,雞需要陽光的照射以及天然的飼料。儘管如此,天然牧場這樣的標籤可不能保證以上這些條件,都可以得到滿足。

 

In fact, a “free-range” label can be warranted if the hen had access to as little as 5 minutes of outdoor activity a day. The hen may not even choose to go outside and if it does, there are no natural nutrients or grass available.

事實上,就算雞每天在戶外活動僅5分鐘,也可以被貼上天然牧場產出的標籤,這些雞可不是自己走到戶外,而且戶外也並沒有什麼營養飼料可以餵養它們。

 

Even “organic” labels can only ensure that the chicken was fed organic feed as opposed to antibiotic-riddled nutrition. However, they could still have had no access to the outdoors and unnatural feed.

就算是有機食品的標籤,能夠保障雞是被餵養有機飼料的,但是否含有抗生素也並不一定。並且,這些雞可能完全無法在自然環境生存,並被餵養一些非天然的飼料。

 

So which eggs are best? Pastured eggs are definitely way to go when it comes to health benefits. You can get pastured eggs from a real farmer, whose chickens have lived their entire lives outside, basking in the sun and eating natural food. Pastured eggs have been proven to have:

所以什麼樣的蛋才是健康的呢?放牧雞的但才會產出優質的蛋類,這樣的雞始終在戶外活動,但是這樣的蛋也只有親自去農場才能買到,而這樣的健康蛋類含有哪些有益的物質呢?
