When you start talking about white and brown eggs and the difference between them there are many opinion, but here we will bust the myth about the difference for ones and for ever!
The only difference between white and brown eggs is there color!
I did a lot of reading and fact finding for this and this is really the only difference between white and brown egg.
There is however more to tell!
People claim that brown eggs are healthier and taste better and this could be true, but that can also be the same for white eggs. It all depends where they come from.

What determines the color of an egg
The color of an egg is only determined by the race of the chicken and has nothing to do with what it eats or where it grows up.
What determines the taste of an egg
The taste is however a totally different subject. The taste is determined by what a chicken eats! Eggs from a chicken farm taste different than from a free range farm where they run around all day and eat only natural food.
In my quest to find the difference between white and brown eggs I asked that question to a local farmer that sells fresh eggs and his answer was “do you eat the shell?” After that he gave me the answer about the race and showed me his chicken.
Sometimes we run out of eggs and do not have time to run to the farm where we buy our eggs and have to get them from the local store.
We always regret that and realize how much better the taste is from the farm eggs we buy.
I hope this post explained the difference between white an brown eggs and I also hope you will find a farm or local farmers market where you can buy the so much better tasting farm eggs in any color you like.
