However, apparently it’s illegal to give antibiotics and hormones to chicken here in Sweden. So, as long as the eggs or chicken bought in Sweden are actually from Sweden, they will not contain hormones and antibiotics.
I was a bit suspicious when I read this, so I called whatever the organ handling these issues are called, and they insured that it is correct.
I just thought it would be quite nice to know since it saves a lot of money buying the regular chicken. Although, if one can afford it, I would say get the organic one. Not to avoid antibiotics and hormones, but because they are treated better and actually taste better:)
yes, I live in Sweden and this was great news. I too believe they taste a lot better but it feels wonderful to know that they actually kept something wonderful and didnt sell yet out hundered percent to EU laws. I was sure we lost all the good food laws against the EU standard.
