It is a well-known food myth that brown eggs are healthier than white eggs. Poultry expert Ingrid de Jong of Wageningen University & Research gets the question regularly, and most often around Easter. De Jong is a senior researcher at Wageningen Livestock Research and knows a lot about chickens and their eggs. She immediately sets us straight: "A white egg is not healthier or unhealthier than a brown egg. They are exactly the same inside."
