Can you drink egg whites?
Yes absolutely, but you want to make sure that you have high quality pasteurized egg whites like ours.
Are egg whites safe to ship in the mail?
Yes! All our products are frozen solid before shipping and packed inside an insulated box. They would survive over a week without fully thawing let alone the short time we let them stay in the mail. Egg whites that have been pasteurized are very resilient and will survive without damage just fine unless they stay over 60 degrees for an extended period of time.
How long will these eggs last before they spoil?
3 Months in the fridge, and 1 year if frozen. But just like a nice piece of meat over a year in a freezer is kind of a waste of space and is never as good as it would have been fresh, so try and avoid it.
How do your eggs keep so much longer then shell eggs from the super market?
Pasteurization kills all of the harmful bacteria that would cause spoilage, so that the eggs age naturally as they would without harmful bacteria. This extends shelf life up to six months, as opposed to just a day or two.
What is pasteurization?
Pasteurization is a process invented by French scientist Louis Pasteur during the nineteenth century. In 1864, Pasteur discovered that heating beer and wine was enough to kill most of the bacteria that caused spoilage, preventing these beverages from turning sour. We apply this same principle to liquid egg whites.
If I buy eggs today when should I get them?
To reduce time spent in the mail we ship out product Monday through Wednesday. Don’t be alarmed if you don’t see your product ship immediately if you order on a Friday.
Do these eggs cook like shell egg whites?
Yep, exactly the same way.
Do these eggs whip like shell egg whites?
Yep, they are just a bunch of shell egg whites together in a bottle. No difference.
What's this bubbly white stuff I see in my eggs sometimes?
In the eggs of most birds and reptiles, the chalazae are two spiral bands of tissue that suspend the yolk in the center of the white (the albumen). The function of the chalazae is to hold the yolk in place. Think of it as a seat belt for the yolk, don’t worry, every single egg you have ever eaten has had a chalazae. It contains no fat, carbs or cholesterol.
What is a good serving size?
That depends on your goals and needs. 8-10 ounces contains between 26-35 grams of nitrogen rich protein, so if you're looking to build muscle that’s a good place to start.
Do you have any other products besides pure egg whites?
Not yet. But we got some great things COMING SOON.
