Processing Overview 

Shell eggs are washed, rinsed, sanitized, and candled, then broken, separated by automation, and monitored for quality and imperfections.

 

Egg products are then filtered, pasteurized, and packaged.

Custom blends (specified egg solids content or added ingredients) are available.

Standards of Indentity

Whole eggs are a combination of pasteurized egg whites and egg yolks from the same production batch blended together in their entirety, in natural proportions.

 

Egg products produced by combining egg whites and egg yolks from different production batches cannot be labeled as whole eggs. These products must be identified with an ingredient statement showing the contents of the product as egg whites and egg yolks.

Examples of Added Ingredients

Sugar or salt may be added to certain products. Refrigerated egg whites may have triethyl citrate added as a whipping aid.

Storage/Handling 

After opening, liquid eggs should be kept refrigerated at 40º to 45ºF (4.4º to 7.2ºC) maximum at all times and consumed within two to six days from date of purchase. Once opened, use immediately.
