What does the term “egg products” refer to?
The term “egg products” refers to eggs that have been removed from their shell and processed for use in retail, food service, or industrial settings. Egg products are processed at USDA-inspected breaking plants, where they are filtered, mixed, pasteurized, and packaged for distribution.
Types of egg products
Eggs Unlimited offers liquid, dried, and frozen egg products. These products are known for their easy storage, extended shelf life, and high durability.
Liquid whole egg is a proportionate mixture of whites and yolk, or liquid can be separated into whites and yolks. Ingredients can be added to liquid as desired by the customer. Eggs Unlimited offers liquid egg in gable top cartons, bag-in-box, industrial totes, pails, and more. Bulk liquid can be shipped in 48,000-pound refrigerated tankers for further processors or other manufacturers.
Dried egg products are egg powders that have been dehydrated via spray drying in a large oven. As the liquid egg is sprayed into the oven, the water in the liquid evaporates, leaving behind a fine egg solid powder. Eggs Unlimited offers dried whites (albumen), yolk, whole egg, and custom blends. Dried egg products typically come in 50 lb. boxes. Pallets usually contain 30 boxes or 1,500 pounds. Dried egg does not require refrigeration.
Frozen egg is available in 30-pound pails or industrial totes. Stored at a maximum temperature of zero degrees Fahrenheit to ensure freshness, frozen egg is a convenient option for industrial manufacturers. Other ingredients such as salt and sugar can be added as part of the production process.
Egg products are available in cage-free, conventional, and organic varieties. Twice-annual USDA inspection is required for an egg processor to maintain a cage-free or organic certification.
Commercial uses of egg products
Egg products are highly versatile. Functional properties include, but are not limited to:
- Adhesion and binding. Egg white proteins are strong adhesion and binding agents that food manufacturers rely on in processing applications.
- Aeration. Egg products aerate in ways that build structure for baked products created at industrial scale.
- Emulsification. Food producers use egg products’ special emulsification properties to manufacture creamy sauces, spreads, and condiments.
- Leavening. Through egg product leavening, gases are added to baked products to increase their volume and yield proper shape and texture.
- Shelf life extension. Egg products are a natural shelf life extender highly favored among commercial bakeries and food manufacturers.
- Protein fortification. Manufacturers serving a consumer base interested in higher protein intake often use egg products to meet their customers’ needs.
The American Egg Board (AEB) lists additional uses via its Incredible Egg project.
