After reviewing a number of products, Men's Health has named Eggland's Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs one of twenty-four "Top Muscle Foods" in the 2017 Men's Health Protein Awards. The Men's Health Protein Awards list includes dietitian approved healthy meals and snacks that will help achieve the ideal 30-grams of protein per meal goal to help build muscle mass and flatten the gut.

"We are honored to receive yet another prestigious Men's Health award in addition to being named in the Men's Health Best Foods for Men Awards earlier this year," said Charlie Lanktree, President and CEO of Eggland's Best. "This honor reaffirms our commitment to providing our customers with the only egg that provided superior nutrition, quality, taste, freshness, and variety."

Each Eggland's Best egg is full of healthy protein and more vitamins and minerals needed to ordinary eggs. Eggland's Best eggs also contain six times more vitamin D, 25 percent less saturated fat, more than double the Omega-3s, ten times more vitamin E, and more than double the vitamin B12 than ordinary eggs. The superior nutrition of EB eggs is due to its proprietary all-vegetarian hen feed that contains healthy grains, canola oil and a wholesome supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E.  In addition, independent testing has revealed that Eggland's Best eggs have stronger shells than ordinary eggs, which leads to less breakage and helps them stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs. Eggland's Best Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs, in addition to offering consumers convenience, are available in classic, cage free, and organic varieties.

"It's no surprise that Eggland's Best eggs made the list of 'Top Muscle Foods' since they provide a nutritionally superior product with high-quality protein," said Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist, Dawn Jackson Blatner. "I always feel confident recommending Eggland's Best Eggs over ordinary eggs to my clients since they will not only benefit from healthy protein, but will also receive more nutrients from each egg like vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids."
