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.
The following egg products are available in dried formats:
- Blends of Whole Egg and/or Yolk with Carbohydrates (sugar or corn syrup added)
- Cage-Free Products

Use this chart to convert refrigerated/frozen egg products to shell or dried egg products.
Dried whole egg solids should be kept cool at less than 50°F (10°C) to maintain quality. Once containers of egg solids have been opened, reseal tightly to prevent contamination and absorption of moisture. And once dried eggs are reconstituted, use immediately or store refrigerated for no more than four days.
If dried eggs are combined with dry ingredients and held for storage, they should be sealed tightly in a closed container and stored in the refrigerator at 32° to 50°F (0° to 10°C). Plain unstabilized whole egg solids have a shelf life of about one month at room temperature and about a year at refrigerated temperatures. Store dried eggs as any other dried, powdered food in a cool, dark place. Dried egg products should ow freely and not be clumped or hardened. Use well within expiration dates.
