Soy Free Pasture Raised Eggs
What makes Soy Free Pasture Raised Eggs Special?
Why Should you eat Soy Free Eggs?
Are you trying to reduce the amount of soy in your diet?
Like many Americans, you may be allergic to soy or have a soy sensitivy, but escaping its presence can be nearly impossible, and oftentimes quite unpleasant when the foods you want to eat upset your stomach. Many people experience allergic reactions to eggs, however often it may not be the egg in itself that is responsible. It is often the soy within the yolk that comes from a hen’s soy-based diet that causes all the negative issues. Remove the soy from the hens diet, and you can eat Soy Free Eggs!!
But why soy free eggs? There are so many reasons!
- Food allergies: Soy is one of the top 8 allergens. Oftentimes people think they might be sensitive to eggs when in fact they’re sensitive to the soy proteins that concentrates in the yolks.
- Chickens are omnivores, so those “vegetarian fed” eggs you see at the grocery store aren’t all that great. Chickens are actually descendants of the Velociraptor, a small but fierce meat-eating dinosaur. Thus, they were created to eat mice, snakes, bugs, worms, and insects. Feeding chickens a diet that is 95% corn and soy is not healthy for them or their eggs or your family.
- Both organic and conventional commercial chicken feed often has soy meal as the #1 or #2 ingrediant because it is a cheap protein source that promotes quick growth and efficient egg production. While it may be cost efficient, it is not the healthiest option according to some researchers. We use sunflower, flax, ans alfalfa for our protein content in our custom chciken feed.
Children are particularly affected by consuming soy. They tend to have irregularities in their development, often developing much ahead of schedule. If we can remove some soy from children's diets, that's a win
