Specialty Eggs

In an effort to meet consumer demand, egg producers have begun marketing vegetarian, organic, cage-free, free-range, fertile, in-shell pasteurized, and nutrient-enhanced specialty eggs. These eggs offer alternative choices to consumers with special needs and preferences. Due to higher production costs, specialty eggs are usually more expensive than generic shell eggs.

Currently there are no set definitions for specialty eggs and it is advised to read labels before buying.
