More About World Egg Day 🌎🍳
Although we have no definitive answer to the question of “Which came first? The chicken or the egg?” we know that the history of eggs is almost as old as that of humans. From ancient times, humans nurtured chickens to obtain eggs. For centuries, eggs have played a major role in feeding families all over the world. They are one of nature’s highest quality sources of protein, perfectly packaged for versatility and affordability. The protein contained within them is essential in the development of the brain and muscles, play a key role in disease prevention, and contribute to general well-being. Eggs are rich sources of selenium; vitamin A, D, K, B6, and B12; and minerals such as zinc, iron, and copper. They are particularly known to be a source of choline, which helps in brain development and sharpens memory. The history of the egg expands far beyond mere culinary concern and, in fact, has had great importance in multiple cultures for reasons both decorative and religious, with a particularly popular example being Easter eggs. World Egg Day was established in 1996, at the IEC conference in Vienna to celebrate and appreciate the importance and benefit of eggs to us all. Since then, the day of celebration has grown and evolved.
