Orange versus yellow egg yolk—which is better? In this video, I explain why egg yolks can be different colors and what kind of eggs you should have.

When you crack open an egg and see that it has a dark orange egg yolk, it’s a sign that it’s an egg from a pasture-raised chicken. Organic, pasture-raised chickens eat natural grass and insects. This means you won’t be consuming GMOs.

Factory-farmed eggs are a pale yellow color. These chickens consume GMO grains, which I don’t recommend. Sometimes pasture-raised organic eggs can have a yellow egg yolk, but they won’t be pale.

Pasture-raised organic eggs have more carotenoids, which is a plant-based antioxidant that has a wide range of benefits. If you are developing vision problems as you age, you are especially going to want to consume pasture-raised eggs. Carotenoids can help you avoid macular degeneration.

Keep in mind that when you see the term “cage-free,” this doesn’t mean these are necessarily better eggs. They could still be held in a large barn with no sunlight, and they are often not non-GMO.
