eggs with mussel power.

The humble egg is one of the most versatile foods around. Scrambled, poached or fried, used in cakes, muffins or brownie and even raw in a smoothie (for you health nuts out there), it’s safe to say eggs have many, delicious uses.

Unfortunately, eggs often get a bad reputation. They are associated with pictures of oversized hens crammed into tiny metal cages. Consumers who care about the welfare of animals, the quality of their food and their impact on the environment couldn’t possibly eat eggs, right?

Wrong. Enter Frenz Free-Range, Organic and Non-GMO eggs. The hens freely roam clean and natural pastures and live in small flocks. These favourable conditions result in eggs that are higher in protein, lower in saturated fats and contain three times more natural Omega3. But wait, there’s more! Not only do Frenz Free-range eggs tick the animal welfare and quality boxes, Frenz are also doing their bit for the environment.

10 years ago, Rob Darby (the owner of FRENZ) learnt that mussels that are not fit for consumption, i.e. are broken or cracked, must be discarded by the fishermen. The discarded mussels can either be dumped in landfills or thrown overboard, neither option being very environmentally friendly. Hens love to eat protein, whether it be slugs, grass or worms, and Rob realised the huge potential for utilising the protein-rich mussel waste within his company. 

Now, 10 years later FRENZ announced that after a decade of research, they have developed a process to dry the mussel waste and turn it into chicken feed. This is a huge win, not only for the hens and the improved quality of their eggs, but also for the environment as mussel waste is no longer being dumped into our precious ocean or harmful landfills.

Luckily for you, here at Eat the Kiwi we strive to deliver only the best and it is easy to see how FRENZ eggs are quite simply the best of the best. Order a pack (or case) today and experience for yourself the FRENZ difference.

吃青口長大的走地雞雞蛋

無庸置疑,雞蛋是用途最廣泛的食材之一。餅乾、鬆餅、布朗尼蛋糕;炒、水煮、煎炸,甚或製作沙冰,變化多端又美味。

然而,在美味背後,不少人都對雞蛋有著壞印象—從一些網絡圖片中,可以看到大雞擠在細小狹窄的鐵籠中飼養,尤其關心動物權益的朋友都會質疑雞隻的飼料以及對環境的影響,鼓勵減少進食雞蛋。

不過,只要接觸過來自紐西蘭Frenz農場出品的自由放養、有機兼非機因改造雞蛋,定必讓您重新改觀。Frenz的雞隻不但小群成長,更每天在天然潔淨的牧場中自由走動,在優質環境的成長條件下,造就雞蛋有更豐富的養營、低飽和脂肪,而天然奧米加3含量高出三倍!Frenz不但維護動物權益,更為環境保育作出一分力。

早在十年前,Frenz農場主人Rob Darby發現,一些破裂的青口,都會給漁民視作不適合食用,從而丟棄。無用的青口要不給送到垃圾堆填區,便是給扔到船外,兩者其實都非常不環保。母雞最需要吸收蛋白質,一般飼料都是蟲子或草,於是Rob靈機一觸,便想到把這些給視作為廢料的但具豐富蛋白質的青口,變為飼料。  

經歷十年研究後直到今時今日,Frenz已經成功開發出把廢置青口,乾燥成雞隻飼料的獨門工藝。這不僅使母雞及其雞蛋的質量提高,也是環境的巨大勝利,從而達至雙贏,因為廢置的青口,不再成為海洋或土地中的垃圾。

Eat the Kiwi致力為大家提供最好的雞蛋,Frenz雞蛋便是您的最佳之選,立即訂購 一盒 (或 一箱), 親身體驗Frenz的與眾不同。

When we think about our Six Barrel products, we occasionally do get that ‘our hands are tied’ feeling—not because we don’t know what to mix it with; it’s just that there simply are too many options, and that they are all too good to pass on.
