Default Repackaging a 50 pound bag of powdered eggs



Advertise Here

Honeyville have these 50 lb boxes of whole eggs for 200$. That figures to be 2000 eggs at 10 cents each, if my math is correct.

As packaged they only have a 12 month expire date. How long do you figure they would last if I packaged them up into Mylar with oxygen absorber ?

thanks BIH

Missed the 5-10 year part. I plan on opening and using some. So by repacking I should get at least 5 out of it. Seems like a good deal. Fresh eggs are not much cheaper.

Thx

Same lifespan as the prepackaged eggs the food storage companies sell. Many years. Powdered eggs are real stable when packed properly. I'm using up some that have been stored in a hot metal shed since the late '90s and they're still fine. They were packed in #10 cans with O2 absorber.

But check around first. You can almost always beat Honeyville's price if you do a little browsing. A lot of places sell eggs in bulk, as well as other products.

I must be looking In the wrong places. This is the best price I have been able to find.

Yes just $4.95 for shipping. I have a 10% coupon so I think I will be ordering.

Has anyone tried their eggs?

I have. They are great for baking. OK for scrambled.

I stored mine in 1/2 gallon mason jars. If I had to do it again I would use Mylar bags.
