valls_AEB_0034When shopping at the grocery store, you’ve likely seen everything from stark white eggs to various shades of brown. We’re often asked what the difference is between white eggs and brown eggs, and the answer is simple: the color of the egg is determined by the breed of the hen. White eggs come from hens with white feathers and white ear lobes, and brown eggs come from hens with red feathers and red ear lobes. Regardless of the color of the egg, color makes no difference in the nutritional value, quality or taste of eggs. So when it comes to brown vs. white, it’s all about your preference!
