Never had a duck egg? Wondering why some people love quail eggs? Let’s take a look at some fun facts of each and compare the nutritional values so you can make an educated choice on how to fuel yourself and your family!
Each egg offers different benefits and uses. Each has a slightly different texture. Where duck eggs are excellent for baking due to their creamy yolks, you may not want to crack 30 quail eggs to meet your recipe needs, right?
Now let’s take a look at the nutritional facts of the eggs. This is based off of 100g of each type of egg. These items will all vary on how the animal is raised and what it consumes for its diet, so these numbers are estimates. In order to choose the egg that is right for your family, you’ll need to look at what factors are most important for your nutritional goals. More protein? Less carbs? More vitamins? Just because duck eggs are what we eat, doesn’t mean that is what is best for you!
I hope some of this information helps you determine if your family will be sticking with chicken eggs or looking for a local farmer or store that carries duck or quail eggs to help fuel you and your family the best way possible!
In our home, there is a time and place for all the eggs!
