    About the Author

    Close-up of brown and white eggs.The American Egg Board (AEB) was created by an Act of Congress in 1976 at the request of America’s egg farmers who desired to pool resources for national category-level egg marketing.
    Home to The Incredible Egg and Egg Nutrition Center, AEB is dedicated to increasing demand for all U.S. eggs and egg products. For more than 40 years, America’s egg farmers support this mission by funding the AEB. The AEB is 100 percent farmer-funded, and those funds directly support the research, education and promotion necessary to market eggs.
    We are honored to serve America’s egg farmers.
