Canola Eggs ®
Canola seed extracts in the diets of our hens ensures that Windmeul’s Canola Eggs ® offer a fatty acid balance that is rich in Omega-3 to protect heart health. Extensive research has shown that fats in the diet of laying hens affects the fatty profile of the egg yolks, making it possible to produce eggs with the fats that are most beneficial to human health. There are three types of essential Omega-3 fatty acids – one of which is found in vegetable oils such as canola and linseed. Canola seed extracts also contains another essential fatty acid Omega-6 which plays an important role in lowering blood cholesterol levels. Both these fatty acids are also known to play a role in the healthy physical development of children. Windmeul’s Canola Eggs ® have a noticeably lighter yolk colour due to the presence of canola seed extracts in the hens‘ diet. These eggs are not only ideal for those following a cholesterol-restricted diet, but will help maintain the good health of the whole family.
