Morrison’s Value 10 British Free Range Eggs - Grocery Shopping Product Review
Buy Egg Products On Amazon
Are you looking to improve the nutritional quality of your diet, while simultaneously adhering to a strict budget or even saving more money than you have been doing? Sometimes that can be difficult to do, especially when you have concerns about animal welfare while simultaneously needing to up the protein content of your diet. So a high-quality, low price, high protein addition to the product line of a major supermarket is always going to be potential good news, especially if you’re a vegetarian!
While looking to choose a box of eggs on my last supermarket shop, I noticed that Morrison’s have now introduced a Value version of a box of ten free-range eggs. Now, I always try to buy free-range (or even preferably organic) eggs (as it just gives me the heebie-jeebies to even think about the conditions under which battery hens live). But it has to be admitted, they can be a little bit pricey. So this has to be good news!
But what about the nutritional aspect? What about the calories per egg? One hundred and thirty six grams of boiled egg, according to the Nutritiondata website, can offer seventeen grams of protein, fourteen grams of fat and is notable for its Vitamin A, iron and calcium content. Not bad for such a graceful, aesthetically pleasing little package! And at less than eighteen pence per egg, you’ve got to admit that these eggs are just a steal if you’re looking for a vegetarian or high-protein addition to your shopping list. They also have the British Lion Quality stamp, which is reassuring!
