Organic egg scorecard

Just as The Environmental Working Group recently put out its bottled water rankings, The Cornucopia Institute has done something similar but with eggs.

While many people may assume that all organic eggs are very similar, this does not appear to be the case. Cornucopia rated all brands of eggs based on 22 criteria that are important to consumers and the results, and accompanying video, were quite telling.

For those organic egg eaters out there, this report will make you think twice next time you go to the market.

    Have you heard of Yuppie Hill Poultry? They say cage free * omega 3 * Vegetarian fed. Free from Antibiotics & Hormones. They are in Burlington , WI. How do I found out how they rate?

      Hi Vicki,

      I don’t know of that one but you may want to contact Cornucopia about it. Maybe they have some information.

      Live well,

      Hi Vicki, I know this is an old post, but someone new might be coming on. I seriously question the claim for all vegetarian feed. If that is the case, then it means that the chickens are indoors all day and night, or possibly with a small porch. Otherwise, they would be scratching and pecking for bugs in the pasture—their natural, healthy diet. And the claim for vegetarian diet could not be made. I would avoid that brand and look for eggs that come from truly pastured chickens. There is a world of difference!

    Thank you for this valuable information.

    I don’t see anything in NC. 🙁

    I’m in the same boat as you, Meya. I do know there are people in the country side who have hens and sell eggs. It might be worth it to seek them out.

  • Meya says:

    So, I guess my family can no-longer eat eggs. The ones we have access to are part of the worst list. :/ what’s a girl to do?

    • Max Goldberg says:

      Hi Meya,

      It is a decision that you’ll have to make and weigh your alternatives. I just wanted to give people the information to do so.

      Good luck!

      Live well,
      Max
