Eggs healthier than ever

14th February 2011

Research has shown that the amount of cholesterol in eggs is far lower than it was a decade ago.

Researchers in Britain found that a medium egg contained around 100mg cholesterol - one third on an adult's 300mg daily allowance. A study from the US showed eggs had 13% less cholesterol than they did 10 years earlier. Andrew Joret, deputy chairman of the British Egg Industry Council, said: "We believe the reduction is due to changes in the feeds used in British plants since the Nineties when the use of bone meal was banned."
