14th October - World Egg Day
We celebrate World Egg Day this month on the 14th of October. It’s also a day to celebrate eggs’ positive effects on health. The phrase “nature’s ideal packaging” is frequently used to describe the egg, and with good cause. One of the foods with the greatest nutrient density per serving is said to be eggs. Protein, iron, calcium, potassium, folate, zinc, Vitamin D, and carotenoids are all found in large amounts in this delicacy. Additionally, the egg has anti-infectious nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin.
The History of World Egg Day
World Egg Day was created at the Vienna meeting of the International Egg Commission. Since 1996, it has been a yearly international celebration. Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, India, Latvia, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, South Africa, and the United States are among the nations that have recently taken part.
The International Egg Commission hosts events to inform the public about the advantages of eggs for health every year on this day. Egg farms and businesses also publish cookbooks, disseminate news releases on egg facts, design t-shirts with egg-related designs, host music festivals, and arrange egg-cuisine competitions. It’s also a day to recognize all the people that collaborate to produce and provide this incredible food.
