Description

Please note these eggs are so large we have to supply them without a lid on the box

 

Eggs are an excellent source of high quality protein. They supply all of the essential amino acids your body needs to build proteins. The egg yolk is rich in fat and cholesterol, as well as many vitamins and minerals.

A duck egg is slightly more nutritious than a chicken egg — partly due to its size. An average duck egg weighs about 2.5 ounces (70 grams), whereas a large chicken egg is closer to 1.8 ounces (50 grams).

As such, you get more nutrients in one duck egg than you do in one chicken egg.

However, if you compare the two by weight, duck eggs still come out ahead. This table shows the nutritional breakdown for a 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving of each — about one and a half duck eggs and two chicken eggs
