Real Eggs Make a Real Difference
The term egg products refers to processed and convenience forms of eggs for commercial, foodservice, and home use. These products can be classified as dried, frozen, refrigerated liquid, and specialty products. Egg products are widely used as ingredients in many food products because they provide certain desirable functional attributes.
Dried Egg Products
Because most of their moisture is removed, dried egg products have a longer shelf life and are shelf stable. Dried egg products readily reconstitute and easily blend with other dry ingredients.
Refrigerated/Frozen Egg Products
Both refrigerated and frozen egg products can be used in any formula where shell eggs are required. These types of egg products are easily integrated into manufacturing systems, including pumping and extrusion.
