Ask The Chef: What's The Difference Between White And Brown Eggs?

The following question was inspired by reading the Breakfast, The Most Important Book About The Best Meal of the Day written by the editors of Extra Crispy.

Question:

Is there any difference between white and brown eggs besides their outer color?

Answer:

The short answer is nope, at least not in taste. For the biggest difference in taste, it comes down to freshness—and brown eggs are sometimes fresher, since they tend to come from local farmers and hit your supermarket with that local timeliness. However, there is negligible nutritional difference.

If you don’t believe us or the Breakfast cookbook, take it straight from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)!
