Who Says Eggs Aren’t Healthy or Safe?

You can’t even say eggs are relatively low in calories. Can’t say eggs are low in saturated fat—they’re not. Can’t say they’re relative low in fat, they’re not! Can’t even call them a rich source of protein, because they’re not.

It’s illegal to advertise that eggs pack a nutritional wallop—can’t truthfully say that, or have a high nutritional content. You can’t say eggs are “nutritious” at all. Can’t say nutritious; cannot say eggs are nutritious. (Sometimes you have to tell the industry a few times). Eggs have so much cholesterol you can’t even say they contribute nutritionally. Can’t say eggs are healthful, certainly can’t say they’re healthy— have you seen how much cholesterol there is in those things? Can’t say healthy. Can’t even say eggs contribute healthful components.

Since you can’t say eggs are a healthy start to the day, the USDA suggests a satisfying start. Can’t call eggs a healthy ingredient, but you can call eggs a recognizable ingredient. Can’t truthfully say eggs are good for you. Can’t say they’re good for you. By law, the egg industry “needs to steer clear of words like healthy or nutritious”.

For a food to be labeled “healthy” under FDA rules, it has to be low in saturated fat—eggs fail that test—and less that 90mg of cholesterol per serving—even half an egg fails that criteria. For the same reason you can’t tout ice cream for strong bones, you can’t say eggs are healthy because they exceed the threshold for cholesterol.

Egg corporations aren’t even allowed to say things like “Eggs are an important part of a well balanced, healthy diet” on an egg carton because it would be considered misleading, according to the USDA’s National Egg Supervisor since eggs contain significant amounts of fat and cholesterol, and therefore can contribute to the leading killer in the United States, heart disease.

Instead of safe you can call eggs fresh, the USDA marketing service helpfully suggests. But you can’t call eggs safe, you cannot say eggs are safe to eat, Can’t say they’re safe, can’t even mention safety, can’t say they’re healthful. All “references to healthfulness must be deleted” as well.
