DALLAS, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ — Just in time for National Nutrition Month in March, Second Nature(R) eggs, a leading fat free and cholesterol free alternative to shell eggs, is introducing a new farm fresh taste and packaging. Made with 98 percent pure egg whites, Second Nature eggs have the taste and texture of shell eggs. New packaging features a colorful farm motif with a blue background and easier-to-read product information.

Second Nature eggs are nutritionally enhanced with vitamins, minerals and riboflavin and have the American Heart Association’s certification seal. Available in grocery stores nationwide, Second Nature eggs are available in easy-to-use 16-ounce and 32-ounce cartons with Flavor Fresh Pour Spouts(R) that allow consumers to use just the amount they need. The product is also available in a 16-ounce twinpack, including two eight-ounce cartons.

“Taste tests and marketing studies have found that consumers find the new taste of Second Nature eggs delicious and the new packaging very appealing,” said Bing Graffunder, president and chief operating officer of Morningstar Foods Inc., a Suiza Foods Corporation (NYSE: SZA) subsidiary. “Second Nature offers consumers a healthy alternative to shell eggs with half of the calories, none of the fat or cholesterol and a great fresh taste.”

Second Nature eggs have only 35 calories per one-quarter cup serving, which equals one shell egg. A shell egg has 70 calories. Second Nature has no fat and no cholesterol, whereas each shell egg has five grams of fat and 210 milligrams of cholesterol. Additionally, Second Nature cooks like shell eggs and can be used in a variety of recipes, including traditional breakfast fare such as scrambled eggs, French toast and omelets, as well as in casseroles, quiches and other baked dishes.

The new packaging features more nutritional information for consumers, including product features, such as “fat free” and “cholesterol free.” Also included on the packaging are cooking equivalencies.

“We designed the new packaging to reflect the fresher taste of Second Nature eggs,” said Toby Purdy, senior vice president, marketing for Morningstar Foods. “The updated and consumer-relevant design clearly communicates that Second Nature eggs are a natural and healthy alternative to shell eggs.”

Morningstar Foods Inc., is a subsidiary of Suiza Foods Corporation. Suiza Foods is a Dallas-based company with a leadership position in the dairy industry. Its principal holdings are in fluid dairy processing and refrigerated, shelf-stable and frozen dairy products.
