Soy-Free Pasture Raised Eggs

Fresh Eggs from a family-owned farm

Who doesn’t want freshly laid eggs directly from a family-owned farm? Look no further…Here at Forgotten Flavors, we are excited to offer a product that is virtually impossible to find on any store shelf—Soy-Free Pasture-Raised Eggs! Learn more about what makes Forgotten Flavors eggs different.

Not all eggs are created equal

How you care for, raise and feed a chicken will directly affect the appearance, quality, flavor and nutrition of the eggs that that hen produces. During the growing season, our pasture raised laying hens live their entire lives on pasture, acting as integral catalysts in improving soil nutrient levels and cycling, while facilitating soil carbon capture and land regeneration. Movement daily to a lush and fresh salad bar of greens, coupled with access to a diverse, soy-free, non-GMO, chemical-free, supplemented grain diet ensures that the benefits of being truly pasture-raised come together into eggs that look, taste, and are documented to be more nutrient-dense in important vitamins and fats. 

WHAT's THE DIFFERENCE?

Compared to conventionally raised eggs from chickens that do not have access to fresh pasture, truly pasture-raised eggs have been shown to have: 

  • 286% more Omega 3 fatty acids 
  • 13% less saturated fats 
  • 73% more Vitamin A
  • 200% more Vitamin E 
  • 1/3 less cholesterol 
  • 7 times more beta carotene 
  • 3:1 (Omega 6:3 ratio)—80% lower than USDA Standard Reference of 15:1

Research indicates that consuming a diet with a high omega 6:3 ratio promotes inflammation and many diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer and autoimmune diseases [2]. The omega 6:3 ratio in the modern Western diet may be as high as 25:1 and optimal recommendations are typically stated at less than 5:1 [1].
