Alexandre Farm's Spicy Pickled Eggs


The (in)credible science 

Eggs provide an affordable option for an important source of protein, but not all eggs are considered equal. A recent study published in the journal Acta Scientiarum Polonorum Technologia Alimentaria compared the overall quality and nutritional composition between organic and conventionally produced eggs. Organic eggs came out on top with larger yolks and more macronutrients of sodium and potassium.
