Cage-free, free-range, pesticide-free, and other “-free” labels on eggs, what’s another one to add to your list, right? Unlike other egg labels, soy-free eggs actually have an underlying health reason and purpose as to why it was created. Soy sensitivity is a huge problem nowadays and some people may have very harsh soy allergies from consuming regular eggs. The reason? GMO soy products that make up the bulk of feeds being given to egg-laying hens in commercial egg factories. Soy-free eggs are sourced from chickens that have not been fed or given access to any soy-based food. So if you or anyone you serve food to has a soy allergy or sensitivity, then soy-free eggs are your eggs of choice.
