Returning to a balanced diet of essential fatty acids
THE COLUMBUS COMMITMENTS
Columbus, through its ranges of eggs, meat and delicacies, scientifically demonstrates real positive effects on cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, circulating fat.
A PERFECT BALANCE
All Columbus products are perfectly balanced in fatty acids: ω-3 / ω-6 = 1/1 and polyunsaturated / saturated fatty acids = 1/1 This ratio forms the basis of the health effects.
RESPECT FOR ANIMALS
Our livestock farms make it a point of honor to respect animal welfare. Moreover, the local anchoring of our farms and the use of local cereals for food reduce the impact on the environment.
By meeting the highest standards in Europe (FCA and BRC), Columbus guarantees the quality of its food and feed all year round. In addition, the iTQi distinguished Columbus products by awarding them 3 stars for their superior taste and quality.
A SCIENTIFIC VALIDATION
5 independent clinical studies were conducted on the consumption of Columbus products. All have clearly demonstrated that the replacement of equivalent products with Columbus products has positive effects on cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, …
A PROPER INCOME
We see farmers as real partners and offer them a stable, higher-than-average remuneration. Our farms, which are only Belgian, allow short circuits which reduces the environmental impact.
In my restaurant La truffe Noire, I exclusively use Columbus eggs since 2004.
These eggs are of high quality for fine cuisine, are really tasty and contribute to the success of our different preparations (omelettes, mayonnaises, etc).

For years, the Columbus egg has been a partner of choice in improving the health of my patients. Not only does it make it possible to achieve the recommended intakes of omega-3, high-value proteins, and critical micro-nutrients, but it is a source of satiety, wellness and taste.
I usually recommend the COLUMBUS egg to my cardiac patients and anyone who cares about health and well-being. In addition to the fact that cholesterol in the yolk does not influence blood levels of cholesterol, this egg is distinguished from all others by its high content of omega 3 essential fatty acids (with an excellent omega 6 / omega 3 ratio ) and phospholipids of very high quality. The COLUMBUS egg can therefore be considered as a full player in responsible cardiovascular nutrition..
