26 Things You Need To Know Before Buying A Carton of Eggs

Why do brown eggs cost more? And are they better for you?

There were some things I expected to be difficult to figure out as an adult. For example: which funds I should choose for my 401K and what to do when my car breaks down 200 miles from home. Figuring out which carton of eggs to buy was not one of them.

Yet, after a few of my first grocery store runs post-college, I started realizing I was clueless when it came to choosing a carton of eggs. Did the hurried shoppers around me really have it all figured out, or were they just as curious as me? Did they know why white eggs were cheaper than brown? Or if the “cage-free” brown eggs were better? And what the heck does “farm fresh” even mean?

Even if you have your go-to brand, there are some carton claims that we’d bet you might not know the meaning behind.So, if you’re curious to see what exactly omega-3-enriched eggs really are or why brown eggs always cost more (and if they’re better for you), we’ve compiled the ultimate guide to deciphering those eggcellent egg carton claims. Plus, we’ve added a few brands to look out for when you’re shopping! Not a huge fan of eggs in the first place?

Benefits of Eggs

Before we delve into the differences in types of eggs, we figured we’d briefly review the benefits that incorporating eggs into your daily diet can have on your overall health. For starters, eggs are the ultimate hunger squasher. Rich in both muscle-building protein and satiating healthy fats, studies have shown that people who eat eggs in the morning will consume less for the rest of the day. Plus, their amino acid profile maximizes building and preserving lean muscle mass, which can help your body burn fat. Eggs are also full of B-vitamins and choline, micronutrients which are important for brain development, muscle health, and energy levels.
