Nutrition labelling – Shell eggs
Nutrition Facts table (NFt)
Serving sizes must be based only on the size of the egg in the carton. For example, companies should not be using a serving size of "1 large egg (50g)" on cartons of medium or small eggs.
However, companies have flexibility in determining if they want to use one or two eggs as the serving size. The serving size should be the amount of food that one adult would reasonably eat at one eating occasion (the recommended serving size for eggs is 50-100g).
Available display surface of egg cartons
For guidance on measuring the available display surface of egg cartons, for the purposes of applying the Nutrition Facts table, refer to Available display surface.
