The quick answer: yes. Because Bethesda Farm Eggs are pasture-raised they contain about four times the amount of omega-3 fatty acids than industrially-raised eggs. The reason for this is that omega-3 comes from grass and our chickens, which live outdoors on pasture, eat a lot of grass. They also eat bugs that eat grass.
Industrially-raised hens that lay eggs get their protein almost exclusively from soy. The result is a unnaturally high amount of omega-6 acids. The omega-6 acids, when occurring in high amounts like this, can actually block the omega-3 acids from being absorbed by your body. So, even if a hen’s diet is fortified with a source of omega-3 (such as flaxseed), if the omega-6/omega-3 ratio is too high, all that omega-3 in the egg can be lost.
(Omega-3 also comes from seaweed, which is why wild-caught (not farmed) salmon is such a good source of omega-3. Since salmon are near the top of the food chain, they get concentrated amounts of omega-3 from the animals beneath them that, ultimately, depend on seaweed and plankton for their food.)
