Ideal for Special Diets

Part of a Cholesterol-Conscious Diet

Clinical tests show that OMA eggs can be included in a cholesterol-reducing diet without compromising the benefits of the diet. Three clinical studies were conducted at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, with results of one study published in The Journal of Nutrition (Vol. 122, No. 11, November 1992) and another in The Journal of Applied Nutrition (Vol. 45, No. 3 & 4, 1993). These studies included two groups of men and women. Both groups were put on the same American Heart Association Low Fat Diet. One group was instructed to include 12 eggs per week, while the other group did not eat any eggs. Both groups experienced a statistically significant reduction in serum cholesterol levels.

Part of a Vegetarian Diet

It has been reported that more than 5% of Americans (15 million) follow a vegetarian diet, and the American Dietetic Association suggests that 30 million Americans have explored a vegetarian eating plan. While there are many types of vegetarians, most choose a diet with eggs and dairy, along with grains, nuts, legumes, vegetables, and fruit.

Consider using OMA eggs as a wholesome and nutritious option for your vegetarian diet. All OMA eggs are produced by hens that are fed a wholesome, all-vegetarian diet free from added hormones, antibiotics, recycled or processed food, and animal by-products.

Part of a Diabetic Diet Plan

People with diabetes can successfully control this disease with diet modification and would do well to consider the following nutritional attributes when comparing OMA eggs with regular eggs:

  • Higher in Vitamin E, Omega-3, Iodine, and Lutein than ordinary eggs.
  • A major source of nutrition for high-protein, carbohydrate-restricted meal plans.
  • Clinically proven to be compatible with a cholesterol-conscious diet when eaten in place of higher-fat foods.
  • Hens’ diets modified to help reduce the eggs’ level of fat, saturated fat, calories, and cholesterol.
  • Great taste and flavor.
  • Naturally portion-controlled.

Part of a Gluten-Free Diet

Eggs are a naturally gluten-free food, and can very easily be incorporated into your daily meal planning for a gluten-free diet. Eggs are highly functional proteins that are easily digestible, and OMA eggs provide more of the essential nutrients needed by our bodies. Eggs are often required to bind many gluten-free flours and starches when used in baking and cooking applications.

Part of a Dairy-Free Diet

Contrary to a common misconception, usually because of their location in the grocery stores, eggs are not considered a dairy product. Eggs do not contain the sugar lactose. People with milk allergies or lactose intolerance may consume eggs as part of their diet without the negative result associated with dairy intolerances or allergies.
