Mission and Work

Our Mission

ENC is a credible source of nutrition and health science information and the acknowledged leader in research and education related to eggs.

Our Work

ENC sponsors health related scientific research that is primarily focused on egg intake. Research grants are openly solicited and reviewed by a Scientific Advisory Panel comprised of acknowledged authorities in health research and clinical practice. Current areas of research interest include: protein intake, nutrient density of eggs, and dietary cholesterol. ENC's investment in scientific research is in excess of $1 million per year.

ENC monitors scientific findings and regulatory developments, and serves as a resource for health practitioners needing current nutrition information to share with their patients. Key vehicles for disseminating information are the Nutrition Close-Up newsletter, various educational brochures and tool kits, published scientific articles, and symposia presented at health professional conferences and the enc-online.org website.
