Stonegate Farmers has launched its Enriched egg range to help consumers boost their overall health and immunity and achieve their RDA through ‘a kitchen staple’.

Free-range hens are fed on one of three enhanced diets to create the functional eggs which are available in Energise, Defence and Multi Vit.

Energise eggs are rich in folic acid (vitamin B9) to help boost energy, with two medium eggs making up 36% of the recommended daily folic acid intake.

Defence eggs are high in selenium to support the immune system by protecting against oxidative stress and help regulate metabolism. Two medium Defence eggs provide 52% RDA of selenium.

Multi Vit eggs are enriched with vitamin B12 to assist in building healthy red blood cells and reduce fatigue, vitamin D for healthy bones, teeth and muscles and as protection against infection, as well as vitamin A. Two medium Multi Vit eggs offer 82% RDA vitamin D and 266% RDA of B12.

“We’re delighted to announce the launch of the Enriched range,” comments Jay Painter, commercial executive, Stonegate Farmers. “Our free-range hens are fed a diet that is packed full of carefully selected nutrients and vitamins, which are then passed onto consumers through the eggs they produce. Our goal with Enriched is to champion the power of healthy protein and provide a natural way for the public to improve their health through our delicious and nutritious eggs.”

The eggs will be exclusively sold in Sainsbury’s supermarkets for a year.
