Omega-3 Fatty Acids

The omega-3 fatty acids found naturally in fish and seafood are considered essential components of the diet because your body can’t make them from the foods you eat. Shell eggs also contain some naturally occurring omega-3 fatty acids, on average about 30 mg per egg. Omega-3-enhanced eggs provide more, from 100 to over 600 mg per egg.
