Brown Egg(Desi) Vs White Egg (Farm Egg).
“Desi” Eggs Vs “Farm” Eggs—What is the science?
This is a also one of the most important topics which is used to confuse the general and innocent Public and to propagate a huge propaganda against the poultry industry by the people who are just leg pullers and envy of poultry and do not want to see a progress and protein deficiency free Pakistan and always want to see the people suffering from diseases and malnutrition and with below the belt immunity.
So, in a single and simple word, there is NO difference between them but of feasibility as farm eggs are easily and feasibly available to a common man and we are just the slaves of a thought that the things which are easily available must not be worthy of buying and consuming and must be fraudulent.
As a result, the brown eggs are priced higher. Other than the color, there is no difference between the shell of a white egg and a brown egg. Some people make the assumption that brown egg shells are harder than white, but that’s not the case. What’s true is that younger chickens lay eggs with harder shells.
We’ve all noticed the difference in price at the grocery store as we stand scratching our heads, but have you ever stopped to wonder what the difference really is between white and brown eggs? Most of us inevitably choose whichever eggs are on sale, or we just buy the color egg we’ve always bought. Well, it turns out there actually is no difference between white and brown eggs , Nutritionally, speaking.
Just let me elaborate more and precisely speaking,
1-It’s all about the chicken:
The answer is so simple that you may be surprised. White-feathered chickens with white ear lobes lay white eggs and red-feathered ones with red ear lobes lay brown eggs (this may not apply to all breeds). And besides that, there are certain chickens that even lay speckled eggs and blue eggs. But when you get down to the egg, nutritionally there is no difference — it’s all just in the looks.
2-Is there any difference in the shell?
Other than the color, there is no difference between the shell of a white egg and a brown egg. Some people make the assumption that brown egg shells are harder than white, but that’s not the case. What’s true is that younger chickens lay eggs with harder shells.
3-Why are brown eggs more expensive?
Many people think that brown eggs must be better than white eggs because they’re more expensive, but that’s not the case. What makes brown eggs more expensive is as simple as size — the chickens that lay brown eggs are larger than those that lay white eggs and thus their feed costs more. As a result, the brown eggs are priced higher.
The price is more closely related to the perception of people and the image of a certain product and the demand and sale rule of the market.
4-Is there any difference in the yolk?
Some people say that brown eggs have a yolk that’s more richly colored than white eggs. The type of feed that chickens eat can vary, so the more corn they eat, the yellower the yolks. So, it’s not necessarily the color of the shell that predicts the intense color of the yolk.
All the things I tried to explain here are just based on true and most authentic scientific research and all the references are preserved and can be provided on demand.
So as a humble student of Biology and veterinary science and precisely the poultry, I would strongly recommend you to consume at last two eggs a day that help you a lot in maintaining your health.
