Not in the introductions area of the forum.

Have you tried the supermarket, Coop, and asked one of the people working there. Coop have Omega3 eggs.

Re: Omega 3 eggs

I am also looking for the place to buy Omega 3/DHA-enriched Eggs as Omega 3 is very important for brain health and to retain the ability to think and reason while aging.

I've been searching through Migros, Coop, and Lidl but so far I can't find Omega 3/DHA-enriched Eggs. Some storekeepers even said that they have not heard any demand for the Omega 3/DHA-enriched Eggs.

Some friends suggested that I can buy it at a Carrefour in neighboring Ferney-Voltaire. Is there any suggestion where I can buy Omega 3/DHA-enriched Eggs within Geneva or Switzerland?

Thanks in advance.

Five eggs per day (with the commensurate cholesterol intake) gives 100% of recommended Omega3 - or four easy to find walnuts.

After a quick google around, it seems Omega 3 is present in eggs because the chickens are fed on flaxseed. Seems flaxseed is standard in animal feed here so you've probably been eating Omega 3 without realising it.

Re: Omega 3 eggs

If you really want to buy Omega 3 eggs - go to the shop U (Super U or Hyper U), they are called Bleu-Blanc-Cœur, I buy them once in a while just because they taste good.

U shops around Geneva:

The problem with this is the Omega 3 you really need for brain health is DHA and EPA found only in fish oil. Eggs enriched with Omega 3 are indeed from the plant form of Omega 3 which is ALA. And its also ALA in walnuts. Its good for you but you really need to eat more fish.
