The Natural Goodness of Eggs
Nature’s Multivitamin and an Affordable Superfood
One Saskatchewan grade A large egg (53 g) contains: 6 grams of protein, many essential nutrients and just 70 calories.
Eggs provide many essential vitamins (A, B6, B12, D, E, riboflavin, thiamine, choline, niacin, folate) and minerals our bodies need for good health.
An excellent source of the highest-quality protein, eggs contain all nine essential amino acids our bodies cannot make on their own.
Eggs are low in saturated fats, contain no trans fats and are a natural source of calcium, iron, zinc, lutein, zeaxanthin and omega-3 fatty acids.
The Canada Food Guide defines two eggs as a single serving of “Meat & Alternatives.”
