Omega-3 eggs are a step up from run-of-the-mill store eggs, certainly not the pinacle of optimality! In terms of the buzzwords mentioned: omega-3, organic, free range, GMO-free... omega-3 definitely has the largest impact on nutrition. The others don't really have any effect.

ALA is bioavailable, it simply does not all convert to longer chain PUFAs, such as DHA and EPA. Our need for such long-chain PUFAs is rather low, that's why the conversion is low overall (pregnant and lactating women have better conversion because each are necessary for growth).

I avoid Omega-3 eggs in general, unless I can meet the chickens and see they're happing eating fish or coconut. Giving them a bunch of soy and flax doesn't seem optimal to me. I would say it's about equal with store-bought eggs.

what are peoples opinions on flax here? ive been avoiding it for a while for several reasons. the omega 3 in them is ala which isnt very bioavailble as said above. Pretty well all store bought eggs will have corn or soy in the feed even if theyre organic. i think the most important thing to look for with grocery store eggs is that they are free range and organic or atleast gmo free, but free range often doesnt that mean much. eggs from chickens that eat bugs and maybe some meat and veggies would be ideal, but good luck finding those.

really? most of what I have read is that the O3 is minimal and has poor bio-availability (if that's a word).

Omega-3 eggs, the chickens are fed flax seed to increase the omega-3 fats in their eggs. A good step up from conventional store-bought eggs.
