According to the frequently expressed opinion,  a chicken egg can be  useful only if produced on a private farm.  They say that the yolk is brighter, and such eggs have more nutrients. Opponents object that even in the store you can find the same “village” egg yolk, they believe that it is possible to produce  healthy and  high quality products.It is a well known fact that the human body requires vitamins and minerals in addition to proteins, fats and carbohydrates. If there are not enough  elements in food, you will have a multivitamin or some fish oil. What could be easier? – “In nature and on rural farms, the hen  “makes up” a menu for itself, says A.V. Gorbachev,  deputy Director for Production of Smetanino Poultry Plant. – Hens pick up grain, grass, berries, worm, bugs. Thus, it receives a full range of necessary nutrients. Our task is to supplement its diet with the same components, making it more  natural. The feeding menu at the Smetanino poultry plant is based on natural animal and vegetable feed. The quality feeds enriched with vitamins  are supplied by  Smolensk  Bread and Grain Plant.No harmful chemical elements, growth bio stimulants, or genetically modified products are used in poultry feeding. All this is the basis for the production of environmentally friendly and healthy  eggs, which is confirmed by the certificate of  National standard.

Why are yolks yellow?

This riddle is easy to solve: the color of the yolk also depends on the feed used. The carotenoids in the feed  make the yolk  yellow. The more carotenoids a hen gets from the feed, the richer the color of the yolk is. Smetanino hens get yellow pigments when fed with corn or grass. Only healthy and well-fed hens accumulate carotenoids in the yolks.Golden yellow yolks indicate that hens get enough vital carotenoids, this does not not only give the yolk a bright color, but  it also prevents the destruction and oxidation of vitamins in the egg. 30% of carotenoids are converted into vitamin, while the remainder is accumulated in the yolk as a protective substance  giving it is golden yellow color.The strength of the shell is another important factor which determines the quality of chicken eggs. Consumers will never  find a broken or just a fragile, translucent egg in the tray. Modern equipment, balanced feed and elite breeds of laying hens help Smetanino poultry produce European quality products which are tasty, healthy and safe.Smetanino shops are located in the markets on Nikolaev, Bagration, Kirov, River streets, on Kolkhozny, Tikhvin, Kiselevsky markets in Smolensk; in Gnezdovo;  in the village of Smetanino, in Katyn and in Pechersk.

Do you know?

Did you know that chicken egg protein is an ideal, natural product treated as a reference model as all animal and vegetable proteins are compared with it.  The  harmful effect of cholesterol contained in the yolk is often exaggerated, since a healthy organism  itself regulates the level of cholesterol in blood. Cholesterol is a vital construction material for the body. That is why nutritionists believe that   a healthy person should consume chicken eggs in reasonable quantities. Bright yellow  yolk is rich in calcium, potassium and phosphorus,  it is a source of almost all vitamins necessary for a person:А, В1, В12, Д, Е, РР.
