****, it timeout'd so I've to type in all over again.
Anyway my favourite brand is 'the country hen'. Free running and organic and its tastes great. So much so I don't like eating normal ones anymore if its raw/softboiled. If its scrambled/fried/huevo rancheros with salsa then no difference in taste.
I thinks freerunning organic eggs taste better because hens get to scratch and eat bugs/greens/worms instead of eating grains all the time. Also the yellow yolk is from carotenoids and not artificial yellow in grain feed.
Pastured dairy products like kerrygold butter tastes great also.
for info on some other brands.

I think the commonly held view that eggs harm cholesterol levels is wrong, check out the article below:Originally Posted by bionicBC
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition October 2004 80(4);855-861
Eggs Improve bad Cholesterol
There continues to be a major fear from most of the population that eating eggs will increase their cholesterol levels and their risk of dying from a heart attack. Next month's American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has a study that helps to put this myth to rest.
Previous studies have shown that consuming eggs increases the bad cholesterol (LDL) in some people. Well what the researchers never did is evaluate the specific subclasses of LDL cholesterol. The smaller subfractions of LDL are more dangerous and associated with an increased risk of heart disease while the larger ones are not dangerous. This study done in Mexican children showed that giving them two eggs a day actually increased many of their LDL levels, but when it was broken down by subclasses, the dangerous levels actually decreased.
So you can kiss your fear of eggs good-bye. There have been a number of previous studies that have supported that eggs do not increase your risk of heart disease. So go ahead have your eggs as they are one of the healthiest foods on the planet.
While you are at it, please be sure and purchase healthy eggs as they are not that much more expensive than commercial factory raised chicken eggs. Please be sure to look for free range organic on the box. If they have omega-3 added that is a a plus but not necessary as you have to be careful of the source anyway. You would have to contact the company but if they are using flaxseed to increase the omega-3 fats they won't be as beneficial as if they feed the chickens seaweed or kelp which have the far more beneficial DHA and EPA.
If you want to fine tune your egg consumption it is best not to cook them. This helps preserve many of the highly perishable nutrients such as lutein, and zeaxanthin which are powerful prevention elements of the most common cause of blindness, age related macular degeneration. No sense in taking supplements of these incredible antioxidants when you get the nutrients for free from eggs.
Some may be concerned about the risk of salmonella from raw eggs, but I analyzed the risk a few years ago and most people have a better chance of winning the lottery than contracting salmonella from eggs from healthy chickens. Personally I consume three raw eggs nearly every morning as part of my breakfast and believe it has enormously contributed to my health.

Bad Cholesterol is mainly a genetic thing right?
Meaning if you are not predispoed, you can eat eggs all day?

Yeah I would like to know if that is a load. It is much cheaper to just buy real eggs and crack em`. I hope that there is little truth to egg whites ints. claims. (they are marketing their own product they are trying to sell here...)Originally Posted by bionicBC

Yea madman, but you DO eat 2 dozen eggs at a time, remember. j/k lol...Originally Posted by MaDmaN
Really, though, eat all the eggs you want in my opinion, raw or not-cheap as hell and a damn good source of protein...
