data on egg consumption
Eggs are experiencing a "rebirth"
among many health and nutrition experts due to recent
research challenging existing dogmas about nutrition
and health, stated
Dr. Mitch Kanter,
executive director
of the Egg Nutrition Center, in a
presentation durDr. Mitch Kanter

Issues Workshop at the 2012 Midwest
Poultry Federation Convention in St.

parison to other protein sources.
Much of this rebirth is driven by data
indicating egg intake does not promote
cardiovascular disease in the majority of
the population, according to Kanter. Recent studies are indicating the positive
impact of a higher protein diet for modulating serum glucose and insulin levels,
both of which can ultimately impact obesity rates and cardiovascular disease risk.
Further driving this resurgence are
studies suggesting that breakfast might
be the most important meal of the day for
consuming protein.

now selling to 40 countries.
With the world population growing at
a rate of 220,000 people each day, animal
protein consumption is growing. Eggs
are a relatively cheap protein source with
a high nutritional value. The global egg
market has been growing steadily at 3-4
