World Egg Day 2017 and Benefits of Egg

Bounty Fresh Takes Lead in Promoting Health Benefits of Eggs

Bounty Fresh, the country’s top egg producer, is taking the lead in promoting the health benefits of consuming eggs daily in the country through various initiatives including spearheading the celebration of World Egg Day this month. This year’s event will be the onset of Bounty Fresh Eggs’ yearly celebration of World Egg Day. Similar efforts have been done in other countries like Australia, USA, The UK, France, Brazil, Austria and neighboring Asian countries like Vietnam and Indonesia, to name a few.

It was a privilege to be part of the wonderful event. It was held at the Eastwood Mall and a lot of people drop by to participate in the different booth activities. There was also a talk about the benefits of egg in our body since we are aware that egg is always served during breakfast but it is also an ingredient in some recipe. 

With its state of the art facilities and using healthy feeds on layer hens to ensure high quality eggs, Bounty Fresh has become the Gold Standard in the Philippines as far as eggs are concerned. Given its standing in the industry, Bounty Fresh wants more Filipinos to add eggs into their regular meal because they are affordable sources of protein, vitamins and minerals necessary in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

“We are optimistic that by leading events like the World Egg Day, Filipino consumers will become more familiar with our products, especially the nutrition-enriched Bounty Fresh Eggs,” says Architect Edwin Chen, Managing Director of Bounty Farms, Inc.

  1. “Despite their affordability, the Philippine consumption of eggs is among the lowest in Asia. This is because of the misconception that eggs are bad for the health because of the cholesterol. We want to correct this misconception,” Chen adds.

    Architect Chen explains that an egg has 187 mg of cholesterol, way below the recommended limit of 300 mg per day, or only 200 mg if once has diabetes or hear disease. While table eggs may cause mild increases in Total and LDL cholesterol levels, this is not a cause for alarm. Eggs, he adds, consistently raise HDL (the “good”) cholesterol. In fact, studies show that up to three whole eggs per day are perfectly safe for healthy people.

    So how does Bounty Fresh achieve high quality eggs? It starts with giving its layer hens the best care and comfort by housing them in environmentally controlled and fully automated houses

that are tunnel ventilated. These hens are also given complete vaccination against diseases and are subject to a medication program designed to boost their immune system.

The layer hens are also given the best nutrition formulated by the company’s nutritionist to ensure that it meets the nutrient requirements for body maintenance and optimum production, that is, they can lay the number of eggs expected from their lifetime; with the eggs at the optimum size and covered with high quality egg shells to prevent the entry of bacteria and contaminants; and good quality albumen (white egg) and yolk rich in finest nutrition found on eggs.

Once the eggs are produced, they are brought to storage facilities using a fully automated conveyor. From the chicken house straight to the egg rooms, the eggs are fully secured to make sure that they don’t get in contact with contaminants and bacteria. This procedure will ensure that eggs are fresh and clean, making them safe for human consumption.

At the egg storage facilities, the eggs are then selected and graded by a fully automated computer programmed grading machines. This process ensures that:
– Dirty eggs and eggs with cracks or “hairline” cracks that are not visible to the eye are removed when they pass through the so-called “candling area” section of the conveyor.
– Eggs are sorted by the machine and not by human hands to prevent contact with contaminants.
The eggs are stored in optimum temperature that will ensure freshness and quality of the albumen and yolk. A quality assurance team randomly inspects the eggs to confirm meeting the standard quality that the company has set or fixed.

As attested by credible agencies such as the Food Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) under the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), eggs are very good source of affordable, high quality protein. They are rich in vitamins D, B2, B6 and B12, as well as a good source of minerals such as zinc, iron and copper, as well as choline.

Because of the vitamins and minerals found on eggs, consuming them will help strengthen muscles, boost the health of the brain, bolster energy production, promote a healthy immune system, as well as lower the risk of heart diseases mainly because of choline, which helps in breaking down the amino acid homocysteine that is associated with the development of heart diseases.

Eggs are also healthful for pregnancy as the nutrients help prevent congenital disabilities such as spina bifida. Moreover, eggs aid weight loss and maintenance, improve eyesight and promote healthier skin.

Thank you Bounty Fresh for this event that we all enjoyed. More power to your company and till the next World Egg Day.

Ariel Men at the #JuanWash Bash

The modern Juan paves the way for gender equality at home with Ariel’s #JuanWash

MANILA, Philippines — August 24, 2017 — Perhaps no era has prompted a more dramatic shift in gender norms than this one; and these changes are most evident in one of the most basic facets of daily life — chores.

It was a common knowledge  that household tasks were once viewed as “women’s work” decades prior, nowadays, a more equal division of tasks for cooking, cleaning, laundry duties, and the like in the new millennium is far from unusual. And men are to work and earn financial support for the family. Nevertheless there are men who are better in doing household chores than women. That I agree because I’ve seen it in my husband.

According to the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB), Filipino men are getting more and more involved in household work. In fact, statistics show that a significant increase was seen in the beginning of 2000s, with employed men allotting an average of 5 hours working on chores. This is a big jump, compared to the average of 1.87 hours from the numbers gathered on employed men from 1979.

With these findings, it’s exciting to see how this would continue to take off to new heights. A contemporary and fresh perspective on equality always starts from the core of the community, the family, and this is precisely why Ariel wants to keep the conversation going for every Juan.
As an homage to the men who show their support with the simple yet powerful act of contributing to housework, Ariel’s #JuanWash campaign seeks to inspire men to embrace one of the crucial roles in making a house a home by simply chipping in on the laundry. On September 1, 2017, Ariel will be launching the campaign online as a thank you to the Juan Washers, or the men who confidently help with the laundry thanks to Ariel Power Gel that makes washing clothes easily done in no time at all.

“For a long time, it has been common for women to have a bigger share in terms of household chores. With the rise of double-income homes and a more open-minded cultural landscape, men are now much more accepting of the idea of contributing to the housework,” explains Luisito Morante, Regional Brand Communications for Procter & Gamble, ASEAN Fabric & Home Care.
Many homes have their laundry washed twice a week. If the men of the household were to set aside one day for laundry, this can mean a world of difference for the family as a whole. As a convenient reminder of how each week gives men an opportune moment to show their support, Ariel is looking to dedicate Fridays as #JuanWash days. With this slight addition to their weekly routine, the men of the household can be a New Man as an expert in laundry, all thanks to Ariel Power Gel that makes superior clean effortless. Especially formulated for better stain removal, anyone can now reach the new standard of laundry with Ariel #JuanWash.

They’re the forward-thinkers — those who are never afraid to try new things out for a spin. For the men of the household, it’s about keeping up with the tempo of the times and sorting out fresh new ways to support gender equality as they empower the women in their lives. Cue in the Juan Washers as we welcome a new era of Ariel Men who fully embrace their role in making a house a home with the simple yet powerful act of doing the laundry.

West Side Story at Solaire

Natural is still best to de-stress your stress

Striking a life balance is no easy task to do. It requires hard work and dedication which sometimes can be strenuous to achieve. Can you imagine how overtaxing it is to juggle between your career and providing for your loved ones?

Studies have shown that stress is commonly caused by interrelationships, such as having to deal with work issues and family-related complications. If left unresolved over time, it could lead to immune deficiency, which later on, might cause other parts of our body to show signs of disruption like hair loss.

Many of us could attest to that. It’s like always autumnal equinox whenever we experience chronic hair fall, most especially at the prime of stress. At its peak, our white blood cells attack no less than the follicles, thus causing alopecia. What’s more, anxiety could drive your mane into a prolonged resting phase, which is called telogen effluvium.

Stress experienced by the body or beyond our coping resources could trigger hair loss symptoms, which, if not addressed properly, could result to early baldness. Worried about this? Fret no more. You can beat it simply by relaxing, eating or flexing some muscles.

Never underestimate the power of sleep. If you feel that you are over your head in dealing with anxieties, choose to rest it off for a while and recharge.

Let’s get physical to de-stress. It helps release endorphins, or what is known as the happy hormones, that can be beneficial in relieving the tension.

How about rewarding yourself? Watch the timeless story of Tony and Maria and their fateful love affair as the electrifying classic WEST SIDE STORY musical premieres at The Theatre at Solaire on August 10.
