Over 70% of the soybeans grown in the United States are for animal feed. Soy is a cheap ingredient to produce; therefore is used in animal feeds as a filler, binder, or protein booster. We do not use soy as it is a GMO crop, one of the most prominent GMO crops in the U.S. According to the FDA, soy is among the top 9 allergies Americans have*. Many people can’t eat store-bought eggs for this reason! Choosing a soy-free feed gives people the power to eat delicious eggs from their backyard and not worry about GMO ingredients.
