Eggs are Rich in Vitamins and Mineral Vi B12 and omega 3 Fatty acids and Folate, eggs also contain Lutein and choline which is very beneficial for our body. Eggs is very common in breakfast table or even dinner breakfast! and seemingly all baked products have eggs. In fact the most expensive Bulk ingredient in a bakery is the eggs. So... lets get to the point ... and share your opinions about this eggy Dilemma What do you think about brown eggs are they better than their white counterparts? or do they have the same benefits? and do they taste the same in your opinion? For me I think they have the same taste unless I used a fresh farm eggs from free range chickens then its absolutely more tasty. Commercial eggs have this kinda weird mediciney smell when its not fresh anymore.

I have heard that the colour of the egg has no importance, and the nutritional value is the same, I understand that the colour of the yolk is due to the presence or lack of some components that gives color to the skin of all animals, but the nutritional content is the same. About the diference between the farm eggs and field chiken´s eggs, definitely, there is no comparison, as well as the meat of the animal, farm animals usually are fatter, and with this taste of concentrate, field animals are much better.

The eggshell color really depends on the breed of chicken that lay those eggs. In my experience, brown eggs really tastes good compared to white eggs. I got these brown eggs from my grandparents house since they are raising "native" chickens. White eggs usually for commercial purposes. With regards to the nutritional values of the eggs, I don't have any idea on the differences.

I just love eggs! They really are the ultimate fast food!! I buy my eggs direct from the farm as I think free range eggs taste better, are better for me and are better for the hen's welfare. All eggs - brown or white - are packed with a wide range of nutrients including protein, essential vitamins A, D, E, and B group as well as minerals iron, phosphorus and zinc. They’re also great for my diet as they are low in calories with only around 80 calories per medium egg and are relatively low in saturated fat, making them a healthy fast food for all the family. Believe it or not the only difference between white and brown eggs is the colour of their shells. There is no difference whatsoever in the nutritional value of the egg, the thickness of the eggshell or the quality or flavour of the eggs housed inside the shell.

Hello pepai and welcome to mylot. White or brown or even yellow or blue they are all t he same. They are laid by different breads of chickens. The color of the yolk is determined by the feed that the chickens are fed. For both a dark yellow egg yolk and golden skin the chickens are fed marygold flower blossoms and or corn. The way an egg tastes is determined by the type of feed it is given. The same as the type grass determines how milk will taste. There is no difference in the nutrition of the two eggs or in the difference in the color f the yolk according to Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University, accord8ng to her the difference in taste and color ifs that free range hens get a more varied diet.

Interesting discussion making me thing at "Do you prefer red, green or yellow apples ?" At least apples have a different taste. In France, the fight between white and brown eggs has ended by KO : we can buy only brown eggs now. Anyways they have the same taste, but the consumer decided that brown eggs were definitely better, and the consumer is king. I would tend to say like you that an egg coming from a farm where hens are outdoors is better than an egg coming from battery farming, but maybe is it only a moral opinion on how we should breed hens... I have not noticed a "mediciney smell" in one or the other, but I think it is possible, due to a different feeding.

I find that brown eggs are my preference. The reason being is I find the yolk to be richer than the white eggs. Not sure why that is, other than perhaps what they are fed. Sometimes I will switch back to white eggs because of the yolk not being so rich that it overpowers my taste buds.
