The Benefits of Free Range Eggs – State & Allen Kitchen + Bar

State & Allen

If you’ve spent any time with us at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar, you know that sustainable, simple eating is a big part of our promise to you. We find that food just tastes better when it’s grown locally, when it’s harvested at the right times, and when it's good to the environment.

 

This thought process goes into each and every item we source, which is why all our eggs we use are free range eggs! That’s right – our eggs in a basket, omelets, scrambled eggs, and more are all free range eggs. In addition to being better for the environment, here are a few other benefits of free range eggs that we value here at State & Allen:

 

Higher Nutritional Value

While standardized labels for eggs can be tricky, in general, when an egg is labeled “free range,” it means that chicken was given ample time to roam and forage for food, collecting its own natural sources of food from its environment and taking it lots of natural sunlight. Research has shown that this method of raising chickens increases the essential vitamins and minerals found the in egg. A free range egg is shown to have more of Vitamins A and E, lower cholesterol levels, twice as much Omega-3 fatty acids, and less saturated fat that its conventional counterpart!

Better Taste

While this may be subjective, we believe that healthier eggs just taste better. Often you’ll notice that eggs from free range chickens are brighter in color than those grown with conventional methods. This is a reflection of the nutrition that went into the chicken, which in turn affects the flavor of the egg.

Why Does State & Allen Serve Free Range Eggs?

State & Allen

If you join us at State & Allen for our weekend brunch in Dallas, you’ll notice that our menu specifically states that all of our eggs are free range. Some might wonder why this matters, because, an egg is an egg right?

 

At State & Allen we believe in clean eating and producing the freshest, highest quality meals around. Our meals are prepared fresh in our scratch kitchen, with simple cooking methods that let the natural flavors shine through. In our efforts to select the best quality foods for our customers, we’ve chosen free range eggs, and here are a few reasons why:

 

1.  Higher Nutritional Content

 

While all eggs are considered complete proteins and are abundant in vitamins and minerals, free range eggs have even higher quantities of nutrients than their conventional counterparts. This is because what goes into the chicken matters. And if a chicken is happy and able to go out and roam, selecting its own food in the process, it produces better quality eggs.  Studies have shown free range eggs to have more Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin D and other nutrients than conventional eggs.

 

2.  Less Saturated Fat & Cholesterol

 

One recent study shows that free range eggs contain 1/3 less cholesterol and ¼ less saturated fat than conventional eggs! While cholesterol levels in eggs shouldn’t be alarming, it’s always nice to know that you can get a healthier, more nutrient egg with less of the stuff you don’t want.

 

3.  More Omega-3s

 

Omega-3 fatty acids are important to our body because our body needs them for heart health and so much more, but we can’t produce them ourselves. Studies show Omega-3s to be 2-4 times higher in free range eggs.

 

Join us for Dallas brunch this weekend at State & Allen, where you’ll be served nothing but the best: free range eggs!
