Thread: Dehydrated/Powdered Eggs

    Default Dehydrated/Powdered Eggs

    Just been looking for suppliers of dried egg powder within the UK. I had a look over on BCUK and found a thread, which basically ended with the idea of buying from Tesco or the like. Trouble is, any finds so far, from Tesco or on the net, seem only to stock 'egg white' powder. I don't want it for baking meringue and would like 'whole egg powder'. I've found out how to make my own but am not in a position to do so, nor have I the room. So, does anyone have any ideas on where one can procure such?

    Thanks. It might not be instant but could be used in cooking, if added to the general mix and water then added. Worth a try at least.

    I find little to no difference, taste wise, between this product and fresh eggs.

    Not sure how available this would be in the UK. One can equals 80 eggs.

    Best I've tasted. Cost is almost exactly double fresh eggs, but so very convenient for canoe tripping.

    Are you looking to remove the need for toilet paper on expeditions or something? As a child just after the war I remember powdered eggs as part of rationing and the faux scrambled egg which resulted was absolutely, unconscionably awful!

    How do you use powdered egg instead of toilet paper.

    These are NOTHING like those post-war abominations. Seriously. NOTHING. Also, NOTHING like the powdered eggs I ate in the USMC in the 60's.

    These are GOOD! Really. They are REALLY GOOD.

    From my own personal experience, powdered scrambled egg breakfast successfully interrupts the normal bowel-movement cycle for days, if not whole weeks.

    Tried the powdered stuff in Brazil, but I prefer the real thing. Never broken one yet on a trip. (As opposed to parts of me).

    These are from Wavecloud and travelled round Mull with us unscathed. (From his hens I think, not him personally):
