- The Development and Application of Breaker Eggs
Breaker eggs (also called liquid eggs) are chicken eggs that have been broken out of their shells.
After a certain amount of processing, breaker eggs are packaged to replace fresh eggs for consumption. They can be divided into three types: protein liquid, egg yolk liquid, and whole egg liquid. They can be used directly by families and restaurants or as production ingredients in food processing plants.
Breaker eggs processing technology was fully capable of commercial production in Europe in 1938. Pasteurized liquid egg products accounted for 30-40℅ of egg production in Australia, Europe, Japan, and the United States.
As early as 1976, the United States produced About 42% of shell eggs are made into frozen eggs, about 8% are made into dry eggs, about 47% are made into liquid eggs, and the remaining about 3% are inedible eggs.
The production of breaker eggs is attracting increasing attention.
Breaker eggs generally use eggs as raw materials. As an important type of egg product, it has significant advantages: it can effectively solve the problems of fragile, difficult to transport and storage of fresh eggs; it can effectively avoid the pollution of eggshells.
Conducive to centralized processing and utilization of eggshells and egg residual liquid; it meets food safety requirements and can effectively solve the hidden dangers of salmonella and other pathogenic bacteria in fresh eggs; it is a new type of liquid egg food popular in many foreign markets, such as egg yolk health oil, mayonnaise, egg yolk The premise of wine, egg-milk drink, egg yolk fat, egg yolk extract, egg white extract, etc.
In developed countries, food manufacturers that use breaker eggs as ingredients do not directly produce liquid egg products. Since the 1990s, EU countries, the United States, and Japan have formulated regulations prohibiting “shell eggs” from entering food factories. There is also a corresponding ban.
The regulations strictly stipulate that food companies are not allowed to purchase raw eggs and must use sterilized egg products. This measure has greatly promoted the development of the liquid egg industry.
In addition to liquid fresh eggs, there are already liquid egg products prepared with different ingredients in foreign countries, which are specially used for cooking and baking. As an important ingredient of food, breaker eggs have formed a special industry.
