When you are buying Vita Eggs, you are buying a product that is the result of the relentless pursuit of improving the quality and taste of fresh eggs.
Recently installed, our free run aviary system from Europe is, to the best of our knowledge, the best in North America. An aviary system could best be described as a birdhouse in a barn environment. This means the birds are able to take advantage of the vertical dimension in the barn due to the installation of vertical roosts and perches.
The aviary system also addresses the environmental and food safety issues typical of other free run systems. The following unique advantages are provided for our birds:
ample nesting space
free access to scratch and dustbathing area
free access to roost and perch area – birds can use entire barn space
birds have abundant fresh air and natural light
access to a protected outdoor coop
excellent environmental conditions including manure removal twice per week
All of these features enable us to guarantee nonmedicated animals as well as a safe and tasty egg that has a truly unique history.
Our chickens are fed a natural diet of flax, corn, wheat, sunflower seeds and dried herbs which are all 100% free of any antibiotics or animal by-products. There are no artificial substances added to enhance production and the hens are never medicated. We search for organic ingredients in our feed as much as possible.
The research efforts and hard work of two generations have created an egg that can offer you more than its neighbours on the shelf. In recent years you as consumers have become increasingly aware of the importance of sufficient levels of vitamins and minerals in your diet as well as the safety aspect of the foods you are eating.
We are happy to tell you that Vita Eggs are a good source of seven essential nutrients – the only single egg with this claim in Canada. Vita Eggs feature significantly increased levels of the antioxidant vitamins A and E as well as Folic Acid. These are all important nutrients which play key roles in a healthy diet.
Vita Eggs feature superior levels of Omega 3 fatty acids, the highest levels among the omega 3 eggs presently available in Canada. (.5 g per large egg of 50 g) Omega 3 fatty acids directly benefit both physiological and patho-physiological functions of the body. Vita Eggs are low in saturates and have three times the polyunsaturates of regular eggs.
