What you must know before buying brown eggs or white Eggs - Find out

People have different preferences when it comes to the selection of eggs. Some people feel that the colour may be healthier on more natural than the other colour while other people feel that one colour may taste better than the other colour. So what is the myth about an egg colour the answer, the answer is not a mystery because the colour depends on the breed of the animal.

In Africa it is a known fact that white eggs are more healthy than brown eggs. In European countries, they also believe that brown eggs are more healthy than white eggs. However the truth is that almost all the eggs have the same nutritional value irrespective of the colour or size.

They contain vitamins, they contain minerals, they contain quality protein but the colour of the egg does not have a relationship with how healthy it is. The only difference is the shell colour or the shell's pigments. The difference between brown and white eggs is all about the animal.

In some parts of the world, brown eggs are more expensive than white eggs while in other parts of the world, white eggs are more expensive than brown eggs. The white eggs are laid by animals who have white feathers and white lobes while the brown eggs are laid by animals who have red feathers and red lobes.

The amount involved of producing eggs is higher so the price will also be expensive because labour costs are 10 to 20 times higher since the animals are large in size and therefore need more input to develop them and their eggs. The formation of an egg takes between 20 to 27 hours. Immediately a chicken lays an egg, its body releases a new yolk for the egg formation process to start all over again. A healthy chicken will produce between 6 and 8 eggs every week during prime production.
