We think eggs rule. So we’ve done you a favour. Our hens lay ‘em. We gather and hard-boil ’em. Then we add a little protective coat to lock in the tasty goodness. Come on, get crackin’!
The Crackin’ Egg Co was launched in 2013 when, after years of enjoying the humble boiled egg our founders, husband and wife Rob and Rachel Shaw had a Eureka moment to bring a brighter, more egg-citing future to the simple egg… and so the idea for Crackin’ Eggs was born– brightly coloured hard-boiled eggs cased in a 100% natural coating and served with a side of flavour. Sealing in all the goodness and keeping them fresh for a whole month.
We think Eggs are one of nature’s greatest superfoods and believe we should all eat more. They’re full of nutrients, packed with vitamins and we’ve even done the hardwork and boiled them for you; ready to peel and enjoy.
Perfect as a snack when you’re on the go, or just feeling peckish. Choose from Salt & Black Pepper, Sweet Chilli, or Sour Cream & Chives to give your eggs extra flavour.
The Multi Pack of hardboiled eggs is a great healthy snack to pop into a lunchbox, enjoy at home or serve up at a party.
Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods money can buy – they are a natural source of many nutrients. A medium egg contains less than 70 calories, are high in protein and packed with vitamins and minerals.
A normal, fresh egg has a yellow yolk, a layer of thick albumen (the egg white) and a further, thinner layer of white encasing all of that. The yolk is where all the goodness lies and the albumen helps to keep it protected when in its shell.
Eggs are packed with vitamins that can help maintain our bodily functions and aid the growth and repair of our teeth, bones and skin. One medium egg contains all 8 B Vitamins that are essential for keeping our nervous system and skin healthy. Also rich in Vitamins A and D, eggs provide one of the best calorie to vitamin ratios of all foods.
When a hen lays an egg, the shell already has a protective coating on it to stop bad bacteria from getting in. When we boil our eggs, this coating is removed and so to ensure they remain in tip top condition, we paint them. Our paint is made from a food safe, natural wax and pigment so all the goodness remains sealed in for you to enjoy.
Yes it’s true, eggs are high in cholesterol with a medium egg containing just over half of our RDA, but it’s not all bad. We need cholesterol in our diets to help us produce the acids that help to properly digest fat and keep our cells functioning properly. Too much of anything is a bad thing, but it has been proven that eggs do not adversely affect cholesterol levels in our blood. In fact, eating eggs actually helps to raise the level of good, HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol and turns the bad, LDL (high-density lipoprotein) from small particles to large. This means fat is mobilised around our bodies more effectively and the bad cholesterol becomes benign. How nice of those cracking little eggs to look out for us.
You can store your eggs wherever you’d like, just as long as they’re in a cool, dry place below 20°C.
