Tropical Traditions soy-free organic eggs are unique!

Our chickens are raised by family farmers and eat a coconut-based soy-free feed mixture that is certified organic, with no genetically modified grains (no GMOs!). Tropical Traditions developed the feed the chickens eat: Cocofeed. You can read more about Cocofeed here.

Why No Soy?

Soy has become a big part of the human diet post World War II, with the result that there are many people with soy allergies today, and many people today are trying to reduce or eliminate soy protein from their diet. (See the book The Whole Soy Story.) Soy is the cheapest protein available today, and it is a major component of most animal feeds. Cheap soy protein allows chickens to grow the fastest, and produce the maximum amount of eggs during their peak laying cycles. If you believe you are allergic to eggs, it could be that you are in fact allergic to soy protein that researchers have now found to be present in egg yolks. Almost all commercial eggs, including those that are organic or marketed as "Omega 3" eggs, are from chickens fed high concentrations of soy. So if eggs are a part of your diet today, so is soy protein, whether you realize it or not. Tropical Traditions wanted to offer a soy-free egg from chickens that eat NO SOY. Tropical Traditions soy-free organic eggs have been tested to be soy-free!

In tropical cultures, coconut has been a traditional ingredient in chicken feed for hundreds, if not thousands of years. The coconut pulp residue left over after coconut oil is extracted from the coconut meat is still a common animal feed component today in places where coconuts grow. This coconut pulp is high in fiber and protein. Mechanically extracted coconut pulp was also approved by the FDA as an animal feed and listed in the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials, Official Publication) as early as 1955. While coconut cannot supply ALL the nutritional needs of chickens, there are multitudes of studies that have been done in the Philippines and elsewhere showing how coconut pulp can be a major component of chicken feeds when combined with other quality ingredients. Some of these studies are more than 50 years old!

Highest Omega 3 Content!

We don't simply add flaxseed or flax meal to our chicken feed to make it "high Omega 3." In addition to eliminating soy and using organic coconut pulp, our chickens eat a high quality fish meal and crab meal. Our fish meal is from deep ocean water small fish, and our crab meal comes from the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest or Nova Scotia. They are very high quality products that add not only a high quality protein to replace soybeans, but also the purest form of Omega 3 fatty acids that come from fish sources. Laboratory testing has shown that our eggs contain almost twice as much of the Omega 3 fatty acids as other organic "Omega 3" eggs that derive their Omega 3 fatty acids from flax seeds. And we not only add high quality Omega 3 sources to our chicken's diet, we completely eliminate the high amount of Omega 6 fatty acids that are contained in soy. Most nutritionists agree that our diet is unbalanced in its ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids because of the abundance of soy and corn in our diets today. Tropical Traditions organic soy-free high Omega 3 eggs supply a much better Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio because of the absence of soy.

Cage Free - Pastured

These eggs do not come from "factory birds" where the chickens are kept in cages their whole lives and never see sunlight or go outdoors. In the summer, these chickens are pastured on lush Wisconsin grass where they are free to roam around and eat other things besides their Cocofeed, such as bugs, worms, etc. They also have access to the outdoors during the cold winter months, although there is no green pasture for them. Their Cocofeed diet is supplemented with sprouts and organic alfalfa during the winter.

We ship our eggs to your door!

Tropical Traditions has developed a special box for delivering eggs to you! This box is designed to hold four dozen eggs:

The box and dividers are 100% recyclable, and no plastic, Styrofoam, or bubble wrap is used. We have tested these boxes, and the eggs do not break! But even if they do, we will gladly refund or reship, so you can order in confidence!


We use our own coconut water vinegar to clean the eggs, and then apply a coating of organic Virgin Coconut Oil to the shell to keep them fresh until they are delivered to you!

Note: Eggs are shipped directly from the farm in Wisconsin on Monday and Tuesday each week. Shipped in multiples of four dozen.

New! Private Reserve Soy-free Organic Pastured Eggs

One of our egg farmers has begun offering us his private eggs that he grows just for himself, family, and friends. These eggs are produced with very special care with a small flock of heritage chickens, using a proprietary version of our Cocofeed where all of the ingredients are grown right on the farm (except for the coconut pulp.) Here is how the farmer Daniel describes these unique eggs:

These eggs are fertile eggs from our heritage breed, White Silkie flock. We hatch our own chicks in our own incubator. No artificial lighting is used. We use nest boxes with straw for them to lay their eggs.

Our grains are all grown on our own farm, and are heirloom or open-pollinated varieties. We save our own seed and have a good amount of isolation from GMO contamination with woods and hills all around us.

We soak, lacto ferment, and sprout all of our feed with 30% whey or skim milk that comes from our own dairy animals on our farm. We include in this lacto fermented feed ration 15% whole grains (ungrounded) and approximately 10% ground up grass hay (in the winter).

Here on our farm we try to consider our soil microbial communities. We feed them with cover crops and green manures. Of the fields that are in production we try to plan a rotation to make it possible to grow a cover crop for microbial feed at least one time each year.

When Brian Shilhavy, the owner of Tropical Traditions, visited Daniel's farm one summer and saw the great care with which he treated his personal chicken flock, he asked Daniel if he could supply some for the Shilhavy family. Daniel said he would try to increase his flock, and now he has enough for us to offer them (while supplies last) as a Private Reserve of our special organic soy-free eggs. (order below)

Customer Comments:

These eggs are unbelievable. The whites are extremely fluffy and the yolks are a great color. They are so tasty! They are excellent in recipes or are just fabulous by themselves. Being overwhelmed by all of the soy in all of our foods, it is great that I can count on Tropical Traditions to deliver the best alternative. Jon - Bridgewater, MA

I received the eggs today & already prepared two omelets for me & my 18 y/o son. They were just awesome! They tasted so fresh & had a lot of 'character', clearly not your average "supermarket" egg! I am so happy to have discovered your site. One more thing - your customer service was wonderful - real people talking to real people who cared, what a treat! Patrick - Brooklyn, NY

I was first impressed with the way the eggs were packed for shipping! Not a single egg, out of 48, was cracked. The eggs are large and full. The shells are very strong, as is the inner membrane. There are no small pieces of shell to deal with and the strong yolk did not break when dropped into the pan. The flavor is outstanding. I would describe it as rich. These eggs are definitely the healthiest and best tasting eggs I have ever eaten! Bob - La Grande, OR

My eggs arrived today beautifully packaged. They are wonderfully fresh and tasty with lovely firm rich yellow yolks and thick brown shells. Yummy. Thank you for providing us with SOY FREE farm fresh eggs...Lynn - Alta Loma, CA

My order came quickly and the eggs were packaged very well. I was a little nervous when the delivery guy was handling the box rather roughly wondering if I would have scrambled eggs. But everything was fine! Paulette - Farmington Hills, MI

I have rarely written reviews on products as one naturally expects to receive in the best possible condition what one has ordered. Alas, one sometimes does find that to be a misnomer especially with food. With great trepidation, I ordered four dozen eggs from Tropical Traditions in the middle of the summer. Within a very short time the eggs arrived. I unpacked them and put them in the refrigerator. That night I scrambled eggs for my husband who is a diabetic and is extremely sensitive to what he eats. He proclaimed them to be the best eggs he had ever eaten even over the organic eggs from the farmers' market which are probably fed soy feed. Feeding the chickens the coconut feed makes their eggs sweeter with a taste that is wonderful. Surprisingly, not one egg had broken during the shipping! I just, today, received another shipment and we will continue to order our eggs from Tropical Traditions. We are also looking forward to trying their other products. Thank you. Brenda - Bradenton, FL

Research:

Professor M. Monica Giusti of The Ohio State University has done research on soy isoflavones appearing in commercial egg yolks. In 2009 one of her graduate students conducted some research on soy protein in egg yolks for a thesis, and Tropical Traditions supplied some of their Cocofeed for the study. Their research found: "Egg yolks of hens provided with the soy free diet, showed a rapid decrease of isoflavone concentration. From an initial isoflavone content of 52µg ± 0.73/100g it quickly diminished until at day 7, the concentration reached individual aglycone undetectable levels."

The chickens that were fed our Cocofeed were laying hens, and had been raised on a traditional soy-based chicken feed. Their results showed that laying hens that are fed our Cocofeed, even when raised on soy-based diet, quickly lose soy protein in egg yolks once they start eating our soy-free Cocofeed. After 7 days there were "undetectable levels" of soy protein in the egg yolks. The research is here. Please note: This research is pro-soy. The researchers believe that soy is a health food, and their studies on soy protein appearing in egg yolks was seen as a way to get more soy protein into people's diets.
