The color of an egg does not determine its health benefits.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports:

Nutritionists say both brown and white eggs are exactly the same in protein, fat, calories, and vitamins.

Different hues are based on the color of the chicken.

So if you're looking for a nutritionally superior egg, don't judge an egg by its color, find out what the farmer fed the hen that laid it.
