ABOVE VIDEO: Vegetarian Fed, Free Range, Cage Free, Certified Humane. Egg labels got you confused? Rightfully so – like many other products in the grocery store, egg cartons are now also obnoxiously decorated with label claims. And while some labels are well regulated, some labels mean diddly squat. In this TheFreshBeet Grocery Guide video Ashley Galloway Thomas, clinical dietitian and nutrition expert, explains what all those egg labels mean and suggests the one that may be the healthiest, most humane and most sustainably raised.
