Okay, so usually I get these eggs from Whole Foods called Vital Farms which claim they only feed the hens their natural diet of organic pasture and bugs (and by the yolk color I don't doubt it). However, yesterday they were out, and I was too, so I bought some Organic Valley omega-3 enhanced eggs. I know these are typically fed a diet high in flax to jump up the omega 3. I'm weary of flax and don't consume it. Two questions:
is the omega 3 in these eggs the long or short chain versions?
do hens fed flax seed pass the lignans on to the egg consumer?
THanks for your help.
