Label Able: Hormone Free Eggs

Buying eggs is confusing. From Omega-3 eggs to cage free, it's hard to know what is best.

Don't be fooled by the term "Hormone Free" or "No Hormones Administered" when buying eggs. The fact is that virtually all commercial eggs (organic or not) in the United States are hormone free. Hormones have not been approved for use in U.S. egg or poultry production by the FDA. The cost may be higher and it may sound good, but in reality the term is useless when it comes to eggs, so save your money.

Also don't be fooled by tricky brand names. I had been buying a brand called Born Free for awhile before I realized they weren't Cage Free like I'd assumed. The brand does offer a Cage Free, I just hadn't been buying it . . . oops!
