Why the frick are eggs so expensive in America?
You guys have cheaper everything than us, no doubt due to the prices of petrol and diesel - but for some reason eggs are five times more expensive. Who's behind this?

    A couple of things caused this. One major one was an avian flu that killed hundreds of millions of chickens about 2 years ago. Another was energy prices for transportation.

    I was at Walmart today and they were selling 60 eggs boxes for less than $14, how much is it in your country?

      3 SEK per egg for organic eggs
      2 SEK per egg for "normal" eggs
      So 60 would be $11.40

        Basically though there's all sorts of shit that can happen at regional levels that cause massive price fluctuations in eggs. This is slightly high for 60, lowest I've seen was under $5, highest during bird flu was like $15-$20

          Can you find me a pack of 60 organic eggs for less than $17,10? Those could be caged eggs which aren't fully legal in my country

    does the way chickens are raised change the macros in their eggs?
    like are pasture insect raised eggs more protein based than caged grain eggs?

      A little yes, it also changes the colour of the yolk quite a lot. I think it has more of a substantial effect on the micros though
      As with anything you spend more money on you're also more likely to get and use them fresher

    The USDA or FDA requires chicken eggs to be washed. The washing removes the outer layer of the shell which allows porosity for salmonella to get in. We don't vaccinate our chickens for salmonella, so refrigeration is required from washing onwards and the shelf life is greatly reduced.

      Yeah now it actually makes sense why they have this pricing.
      I live in one of the most expensive countries in the world and our eggs are still cheaper than American eggs,
      while everything else is like twice the price.
      Thanks anons. Do you know any other country that washes their eggs? I've never heard of it
