Colorado Egg Producers celebrate the history of eggs

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Colorado egg farmers and the Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) Association proudly celebrate the history of eggs and help to answer the age-old question – “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?”. While the answer is highly debated, one thing is certain, eggs are a staple of the American diet. According to the American Egg Board, eggs are so popular that they’re used by 94 percent of households in the U.S. Weighing in at 75 calories, eggs are a powerhouse of nutrition for their size and caloric content. Each egg has 13 essential nutrients – including the highest quality protein, choline, folate, iron and zinc.

CEP is a membership organization representing seven farms throughout Colorado. CEP is committed to doing what’s right for its community, as illustrated by the regular donation of thousands of eggs to food banks throughout the state. Egg farmers in Colorado pride themselves on providing eggs to Coloradans. We are also proud to offer consumers the choice between cage, cage-free eggs, organic, nutrient enhanced, brown and white eggs.
