The IEF endorses aid projects and other egg industry supported projects – The egg industry all over the world are helping causes.
In many regions of the world diets are short of, or completely lacking, high quality protein; many diets are based mainly, or entirely, on starch such as maize. Protein is vital for a healthy diet: the human immune system needs high quality protein to function efficiently.
Protein increases people’s natural immunity to diseases and significantly enhances a person’s natural response to vaccinations.
Just a small amount of high quality protein also helps brain development in infants, mental concentration and muscle development in children.
The IEF is committed to working with foundations and organisations around the world to help ensure that high quality protein is accessible to everybody.
