An “A” for the Nutri-Score
The Nutri-Score logo consists of 5 letters and corresponding colors and provides information about the nutritional value of a food.
You can find this logo on the front of packages so that you know at a glance which product has the best nutritional value.
Comparing similar products and making healthier choices becomes a lot easier.
The Nutri-Score of each product is calculated using the following formula:
Score = unfavorable nutrients (calories, saturated fats, sugars and salt) – favorable nutrients (fibers, proteins, fruit, vegetables and nuts)
Based on this score, the Nutri-Score is obtained: a letter from A (very good) to E (very bad) and a corresponding color, from dark green to dark red.
We would also like to make a small comment on this formula. Regarding the beneficial nutrients, the omega-3 fatty acids were not involved, despite the large health benefits. Our Columbus eggs are fortunately full of these healthy omega-3 fatty acids!
The use of Nutri-Score is not mandatory. We consciously choose to use the Nutri-Score because of its transparency and clarity.
In this way you can better interpret the nutrition labeling, make easy comparisons and make healthier choices without losing time.
If you want more information about the nutritional value of our Columbus eggs, you can consult the complete nutritional table, which you can find on the inside of the egg packaging or on our website.
Moreover, nutrition is a very important factor for good health. Nutri-Score is a scientifically validated logo that helps to think more consciously about nutrition and makes it easier to compare and choose products. In this way we can further assist you in choosing a healthy and balanced diet.
Columbus eggs have a positive influence on many aspects of health. This has been our driving force for many years and has been demonstrated by various clinical studies.
