Powdered eggs?
« on: June 04, 2009, 12:46:15 PM »

I have looked and looked for powdered eggs.   Walmart laughed at me.  The local chains said there was not enough demand to stock it.  It's been left out of my stockpile for far too long.  Starting to feel the need to get all the loose ends together.  Is it possible to make my own?

I never even googled it because I didn't think you could make your own.  Thank you!

I can usually find these in the organic section of the grocer.  Also, seems like they sell them more durning the holidays . . .must be able to bake something with them.

Yeah, thanks Klapton!


I miss powdered eggs. The Army, especially in my early career days, fed us powdered eggs when in the field almost daily. Guys would bitch but I liked them.

I'm gonna get some and store em, I may not get a chance to raise chickens before SHTF.

Sounds very easy.  I am going to try this.  I have always ordered from Honeyville before.  They have good stuff and the prices are very fair. 

Thanks!!

About once a month they have a 10% off sale.  You get reminders if you sign up for them.  They also usually ship your entire order anywhere in the US for $4.95. 

They have great freeze dried fruits too.  My kids love the banana chips.   ;)

I'm going to have to try them out then. They are way cheaper than some of the other places I've researched.

We have been using Honeyville for a couple of years now. Great prices, good product and the $4.99 shipping cannot be beat.

Got my powdered eggs yesterday. Came from Honeyville; we ordered through Amazon.  Seemed to be a good price.

If you have Kroger in your area they carry canned powdered eggs.

Kroger in my area carries pasteurized died/powdered egg whites, not powdered whole eggs. They are in the baking goods section, close to the powdered milk.

In my area, they cost approximately $10 a can. The cans are called "Just Whites" from Deb El. http://www.debelfoods.com/recipes_justWhites.htm   Each 8 oz. can contains an equivalent amount of 57 dried egg whites, about the amount of 4.75 dozen eggs. No refrigeration required. Each 1 egg equiv. serving = 2 tsp and provides 3g of protein.

Without the egg yolk, we avoid all the egg's 200mg+ of cholesterol, and all the fat, but we also miss out on slightly less than half of the egg's total protein, and most of it's nutrients, including it's vitamins A, D, & E, as well as it's choline, at the same time.

Unfortunately, there is no expiration or 'best by' date on the can.

Did anyone ever try the "Just Whites"? I just bought a can. Also has anyone found a place that sells the large quantities of the powdered eggs? I saw that the manufacturer sells it in 50lbs boxes too.

Here's a video from dehydrate2store.com using Honeyville egg whites

http://dehydrate2store.com/videos/?id=10

I have used Honeyville a couple of times now. Their products are good and the prices are OK. I have bought green onions and cheese from them. The green onions are great! My uses the cheese, I believe she likes it a lot. I plan to expand my inventory with several of their products including dehydrated whole eggs and their egg whites as well.

Because we have chickens sometimes we get overwhelmed with eggs for two people so here's what I found to do and it will get you decent powdered eggs.

Whisk or blend eggs to scramble. Fry them in a non-stick pan until just cooked  (we use cast iron) but don't use oil as it will make the eggs go rancid in storage. Pour onto fruit leather tray of dehydrator. Dry at 145 degrees until brittle. When completely dry grind them in a blender or food processor store in glass jars.  To use reconstitute 1:1 ratio - 1 tbsp powdered egg & 1 tbsp cold water & use like a fresh egg.

Note you can just dehydrate them without cooking but it COULD leave you open to salmonella because you are below the 160 degree cooking that kills salmonella.

I have bought from Honeyville for several years, there $4.99 shipping is the best around. The egg products are great. They also have one of the best freeze-dried fruit selections you will find (they have raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, peaches,pineapple, and a few more that i forget ::)). Buy direct from them online and you will save a few bucks also. they have periodical sales where they give 10% off your entire order. Just what an old prepper wants! ;D

If you would rather shop locally, check with a bakery or bakery supply shop in your area. I got mine from a bakery in Mesquite, TX but I had to let them know ahead of time (and pay for them) but it was no hassle. I tried drying my own eggs but really makes a mess. There is not a big savings either so commercial seemed a better idea.

I have been using Isopure whey for my workouts for a few years now. When I started prepping an extra 7.5lbs bucket in the pantry and now have it in my cycle of food storage. Figured in a SHTF situation protein of any kind is the most difficult to procure; especially in a large urban environment. Question for you evilphish, why did you mix the egg whites with your whey protein? What was  the benefit?

That is really great information! Thanks TBM. We don't have chickens yet, but plan to. I can easily see a situation where we get more eggs than we can keep and would like to store for use during molting season :)

Do you know what the shelf life is on these home made powdered eggs?
