After you’ve tried healthy drinks and diet supplements, try the healthy organic eggs that have entered the market priced just 20% higher than normal farm eggs.

Therefore, if you also had misgivings about eggs being all about calories and cholesterol, rest easy — these are fat-free wonders in spotless white shells! 

Besides being perfect in shape, size, healthy eggs have all the necessary nutrients in required proportion. Hatched naturally or organically, these are a rich source of Omega PF13, DHA, Vitamin A, B, D3…and the list is long. These eggs are also easily digestible and have great taste. “Health conscious people always prefer food items grown naturally. People have options of organic fruits, vegetables and cereals. Now they also have an option of organic eggs. Every care is taken from hatching to transportation of these eggs,” said Sanjay Patel, MD of Biotech Group.

Currently, they are available only in Gujarat.
