British Egg Week reminder

26/09/2019

With British Egg Week (7-13 October) almost upon us, British Lion eggs is calling on UK food businesses to get cracking and take part in the Protein Power Challenge.

The challenge reveals the surprising truth that while eggshells are famously fragile, they are surprisingly strong when squeezed end-to-end. The arched shape provides the ability to withstand heavy loads, similar to the architectural designs of some of the world’s strongest bridges and buildings, which have been supporting weight for hundreds of years. Eggs are not only physically strong; they are also rich in protein which is one of the essential nutrients we all need in a healthy diet and to maintain a strong and fit body.

Keep an eye on @egg_recipes in the lead up to British Egg Week for more information.
