In December 2010, World’s Best Eggs began producing organic soy-free eggs in response to consumer demand. With 80% of all grocery items now containing soy and soy by-products, Jeremiah Cunningham’s World’s Best Eggs is producing an egg that allows consumers to avoid the over-consumption of soy. Our soy-free hens are fed 100% Organic Soy-Free Feed freshly milled by Coyote Creek Organic Feed Mill.
The consumer demand for soy-free eggs is due to concerns about possible carcinogenic effects related to soy and to increasing cases of soy allergies. Many food scientists and medical professionals claim soy may cause or contribute to the growth of cancer, and Cornell University’s Program on Breast Cancer and Environmental Risk Factors warns women who are at risk for breast cancer to limit their soy intake. Though the effects usually diminish during egg production, some consumers prefer to avoid soy altogether.
