🥚 The Shocking Truth Between Free Range, Cage Free and Pasture Raised Eggs?
I think eggs are a great source of protein. The yolk and white each about 11 amino acids and when combined together, (as it’s found in nature) is a complete protein with an extremely high “Biological Value”.
This also means all of you silly people who are eating only the egg whites, are missing out on half the amino acids and most of the nutrients.
The yolk, even though it has all the fat and cholesterol, does NOT increase your “bad” LDL lipoprotein cholesterol. It actually increases your, “good”, HDL lipoprotein cholesterol.
And the best way to eat eggs are raw, but since most won’t do this - you should have the yolk runny and soft - you don’t want to “over heat” it and change the fat structure. Thus, soft-boiled or “sunny side up” would be ideal.
Eggs are great for building muscle AND losing fat. Great for your brain. And, fantastic for optimizing your hormones.
However, the problem is that most eggs come from unhealthy chicken and thus, the eggs are also “unhealthy”.
So, you think you’re doing the right thing by eating eggs that say:
And yet, the prices vary greatly and at the end of the day, you’re getting lied to.
So today’s video will quickly explain the real truth behind the “marketing scams” of the food industry. And I’ll also reveal the BEST and only type of egg you should be eating.
I’m Paying More, So It Must Be Better
When I was having the conversation with one of my fitness friends, he said “I only get cage free, it costs more, but it’s worth it. It’s better for the chicken, the environment and it’s a healthier egg as well”
And I said to him, “yeah, that’s what THEY want you to believe - but this isn’t the case. It’s not even close!”
Cage Free - Not!
This simply means that the chickens are not in “boxed cases”. However, they’re still confined in very small and closed off quarters inside a building. They get no sunlight or access to the outdoors. Their days are spent without any movement, standing in their own filth.
Free Range - Not!
According to the USDA regulation, “free range” only means that the chickens are allowed “access” to the outside with no specifications as the quality or the duration of that outside exposure.
In this situation, the chickens are still crammed in large warehouses. However, there is a small door on one end that opens to a few feet of outside dirt space.
But the sad truth is that the chickens never even know that door exists and couldn’t get there even if they wanted to.
Vegetarian Fed - Bad!
This is a newer term that is appearing on egg cartons. People read it and think, “Wow. The chickens must be fed healthy vegetables and grains.” Ummm…no.
A chicken is a natural carnivore. It eats on flesh. It also likes to eat bugs and insects. It is NOT a vegetarian.
A “vegetarian raised” chicken is completely raised on industrialized feed (probably GMO) and is never allowed outside. EVER! This is actually the WORST form of egg.
Pasture Raised - This Is It!
So, this is the type of eggs I eat, including animal protein.
Although it does not have any current regulations, it is being used by sustainable farmers to mean chickens raised in the outdoors… in the pasture.
Thus, this is what you actually think about - chickens outside, doing their own thing in nature. This is what you want to buy if you are shopping for eggs.
And yes, this does cost more - but it’s well worth it.
Another thing to remember is that all of these other ones I mentioned today - “cage free”, “free range”, “vegetarian” and so forth - well, you’re paying way more for the LABEL, even though the egg is not any healthier.
So either get the cheapest eggs you can find if you don’t care …. or only get Pasture Raised. Everything else is a scam and waste of money.
However, I want you to remember that when you eat something, you’re eating what IT ate too. If the animal ate unnatural foods for its species, GMO sources and so forth, it changes the hormones and structure of the animal and protein and thus, you’re getting junk.

I enjoy your videos and find them very informative and I am trying to implement many of the changes that you suggest to my life style. I am 55 years old, obese, and I am feeling a lot of the negative health effects that you have mentioned and I want to change things before it is to late. I wanted to mention that I just watched another you tube video that had eggs listed on their Top 10 foods to avoid. They cited some Harvard University study that suggest a higher mortality rate in people who include eggs in their diet. They also suggested that if you must eat eggs you should eat Free Range. Anyway thank you for all your work and information.
Thank u!! I have a farm back home Ecuador with CACAO seeds and I will grow my onw chickens and feed them the good grain and I will treat the them like my babies@!! I am working very hard to finish my proyect...
Tried of people getting ripped off? bull shit, you're a secret vegan activist trying to appeal to peoples' wallets and health =P
Free range means absolutely nothing for any animal, and even if it was nice conditions, they're still seen as products and when they can't produce what people want anymore, they always go straight to the slaughterhouse.
Eggs are not healthy regardless, the FDA cannot legally say that eggs are healthy because they're just not. One egg has about the same bad cholesterol as a bloody big mac from mcdonalds.
Those awful cruel industries don't give a shit about your health, those animals' lives or this beautiful Planet so wake up you lovely people.
I used to eat Organic hard boiled eggs everyday sometimes 2x/day= 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon snack is that too much?no junk foods almost all my foods i used to eat are Organic...please advice me i have nodule thyroid ( benign )but i don’t take any medicine , no problem in swallowing any food i take but only problem i have very dry skin and falling lots of my hair and it’s getting thinner 🤔😢
God,........ what if you can't get these special eggs? You make us think we should not to eat anything else" I live in Japan and eat eggs from chickens that are fed Marigolds ....thats the best I can do"
Just raise your OWN CHICKENS... The cost to raise your own, yes, will cost a pretty penny... Grow your own veggies, raise your own chickens, that way you know exactly whats goin on and what you're eating. Live well.
Thank you Dr. Sam Robbins for great value of information and well summed up. Also your voice is great! Could you please make a video about Raw eggs and if you know how to avoid bacteria, salmonella but still consume raw uncooked? Also if you could make videos about Caloric shakes, preworkout natural shakes, or after-work natural shakes without powder etc? Thank you again!
I’ve never seen pasture raised chicken eggs here in Britain, only caged or free range, unless you go to a farm that sells eggs & choose them yourself but even then I guess they are free range as they have chicken coops where they lay the eggs & fenced off access to the out side .
Get your eggs from someone with their own flock, large or small. I used to buy all my eggs from a woman who had about fifty chickens, just wandering all over her small farm. She had multiple water sources for them and fed them in the evening, this was before GMO crap. Best eggs ever !
All different colours. We frequently had double yolks and my dad once cracked open a triple! I didn't know those existed.
Anyway the yolks are dark yellow, the flavor was incomparable. she kept a couple of roosters to help protect the flock from Hawks and other chicken eating critters. But she was so diligent about making sure the eggs were super fresh, I only saw a few fertilized eggs in the two or three years I bought from her.
THAT'S how to buy your eggs.
I love the way you get right to it, no BS-ing around. I knew not to eat cage free, but I didn't know the difference between free range and pasture raised. I currently have free range eggs in my fridge and on the carton is a picture of red/brown hens running around on grass living the good life. Now these eggs cost almost $7.00 a dozen which is a lot for a Senior Citizen living on Social Security. To me it is worth it because more and more I am bothered by the way farm animals are treated. Eating eggs will allow me to get the protein I need with out causing animals to suffer. I will be looking for Pasture Raised from now on. Thank you for explaining the difference.
My chickens and ducks are let out at sunrise. They go to roost at sundown. I lock them up as soon as they have gone to roost. The chickens have several hundred acres of pasture to forage for bugs. My ducks are limited to 1 acre (30 ducks) only because they cannot run as fast as my 30 chickens and do not fly. I get 15 dozen from each breed per week. I sell all 30 dozen eggs each week. Some as food and some as fertile hatching eggs. I have 10 drakes and 2 roosters. I also regularly hatch out chicks and ducklings for sale and to raise for meat. In the winter my chicken will not come out of their coop if there is snow. I raise meal worms year round. Both my ducks and chickens love eating dried meal worms. I also raise Perennial Russian Comfrey for feeding my birds. Both the chickens and ducks love eating comfrey too. Eating bugs prevents my birds from developing a Salmonella infection so my eggs are perfectly safe to eat raw. My Dietary Regimen is as close to Zero Carbs as possible. I do not eat plants. I only use plants as spices.
I thank you for all your information about eggs. I was raised on a farm and our chickens were always out side running free.
And those eggs tasted really good. But we’re can you find any free range chickens now days? I live in a big city. But thank
you for all this information.
Yup! In addition to a good egg mash, my little hens get full run of the yard and lay very good eggs. Sometimes I even treat them with crappie minnows - you wouldn't believe how funny they are with minnows!
How about omega eggs?thanks for being up on the horrible way chicken are raised and l think they are not good for you but what horrible stress on the chicken as legs break cause their overfed and full of antibiotics.
thanks for exposing the food Ind. scam on how chickens are raised and marketed. I learned a lot. I've been drinking raw eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper all my life. nice to know I've been doing SOMETHING right........!
When I was broke, I would do exactly as he says at the end of this video. I knew that anything in between pasture raised eggs, and the cheapest eggs at Walmart, or wherever, was just not worth spending the money on. So, I would go for the cheapest eggs I could find. Generally by several dozen at once type of thing. I went for volume. But really good eggs from a farm, or a friend who raises them, is by far the best way to go.
just hang out in a breakfast restaurant, you will soon realize that all the people who order a egg white only dish are pathetic weak and typically half dead. that's because you don't know shit about nutrition. much like a vegan or vegetarian.
Woohoo, i raised my own chickens and we feed them a variety of different foods. Where I live has alot of predators, so my father in law and I build a coupe. Im a 6'4" man and the coupe we build is way above my head and the base has been dug down and concrete was poured and blocks were laid for its foundation. We made the whole bottem concrete with a slop for draining, then we filled it up about 8 inches of sand that we interchange every fall.
Chickens are carnivorous ....brought back memories of shelling corn and looking through the slats of the crib to see how many mice the old hens & the cats would catch . nothin funnier than to watch some old hen with a mouse playing keep away from 10 other hens lol For those of you who feel sorry for the mouse, you ain't never had a mouse/rat climb up the inside of your pants leg when your hot & sweaty......
The last working farm that I lived on was an "egg ranch". We raised white leghorn chickens for laying eggs. Two-thousand of then to be exact. That is why I found your two videos interesting. Our chickens were NOT caged, their population density was not so bad as they could not find the door at the end of their food and nesting area, and while their outside area was fenced, it was large enough for half of that group of chickens to be outside at any one time.
Obviously the jury is still out despite your informative piece. The truth is if we are what we eat then why should we eat pasture raised eggs ?? Chicken in pastures eat anything from worms, ants and especially cockroaches . Are those good for us ?? I specifically made mentioned in regard to the car / fuel analogy you posited. In short ,, you ought to be telling all viewers that they shoulder only eat eggs if they raised the chicken themselves. Or better yet , eat eggs if you are aware of what the chicken eats. And since that is so remote,,, we must not be eating chick or eggs.
Good video, I'm moving to the country on to 20 acres was planning on raising chickens. Had figured on letting them run around all day then penning them at night, keep the varmints from easy food. At least now I know I've got the right idea
Dr Sam Robbins I’m very disappointed in your response to my request regarding organic eggs. I haveNEVER seen “pasture” printed on an egg carton. What planet do you live on? INSCRIBING THIS CHANNEL. Expected a fuller explanation
Organic eggs are hens fed on grains, what is organic produce, it is wheat corn produced without using fertiliser, I don't think hens are fed these types of grains very often as this type of grains are very expensive. Free range eggs are the best option, or if you have a garden why not keep a few chickens yourself, you can let the chickens run over the lawn they will do no harm, and they will fertilise the grass for you. I had 2 chickens here in my back garden, one a blue and the other a bared rock, breed. The little blue hen or grey feathered bird laid 340 eggs last year and the bared rock laid 325 eggs, and kept myself and neighbour in eggs all year. Just purchased 6 day old chicks and 1 rooster chick , end of June, they are now 10 weeks old, and looking simple magnificent . I had to keep the baby chicks in a wire pen in the garden because of cats, but I move them to fresh grass every 2 days. They are healthy full of life, well feathered. They also get the house leavings, lettuce cabbage etc. I have just one small problem the little rooster chicks like to hear his voice at 6.0am in the morning so far not to,bad, hope the neighbours don't hear him, not managing a full crow yet, but dread to think when he can , as he is turning out to be a Georgeous looking bird. Greetings from Northern Ireland.
Well, this was a very interesting article and one to be taken seriously. However, no one should ever be believed unless they can prove it. Your article/YouTube is lacking everything that can prove your argument. No sources cited in the body, no sources cited in the notes at the end. And no hyperlinks to other sources. So, now, I have to do all the legwork to see if you actually know your stuff. That DR in front of someone’s name doesn’t mean Jack to me. So, maybe think about this in your future tubes.
Good video, I never knew this, I always thought cage free or free range meant they lived outdoors, now I know it has to say pasture raised. Even when you think you are eating good, you still aren't eating good, no wonder everyone is getting cancer.
Dr Sam Robbins - Thank you for this valuable info. But, how can we trust these farmers who's egg cartons say Pasture Raised Hens, to actually leave the hens outside for most of the day? How can we know for sure?
Is there some sort of gov't inspector to ensure that they comply with their statements on how the chickens are raised/fed to ensure that these chickens are actually eating bugs/worms? Don't most Pasture Raised chicken farmers supplement the chickens diet with some sort of grains, especially in the winter mths?
