    OvaEasy® Egg Crystals in Bags last for 2 1/2 years! *From time of production*

    Most powdered eggs claim 5 - 10 years shelf-life, but is this really true? Not according to the American Egg Board:

    "Plain whole egg solids [powdered egg] have a shelf life of about one month at room temperature and about a year at refrigerated temperatures." www.aeb.org

    OvaEasy Egg Crystals have been specially processed using our unique technology to achieve long shelf-life. And since we're a military supplier, we use the US Army Labs shelf-life tests based on the most advanced academic research.

    We've also used the same tests on regular powdered eggs and the results show significant degradation and browning after just 1.5 years of accelerated testing.

    Most powdered eggs claim 5 - 10 years shelf-life, but is this really true? Not according to the American Egg Board:

    OvaEasy Egg Crystals have been specially processed using our unique technology to achieve long shelf-life. And since we're a military supplier, we use the US Army Labs shelf-life tests based on the most advanced academic research.

    We've also used the same tests on regular powdered eggs and the results show significant degradation and browning after just 1.5 years of accelerated testing.



    A lab analysis shows high levels of the molecules furasone, pyranose and pentosine. These molecules are by-products of 'browning' reactions (Maillard reactions) and other chemical reactions. These reactions severely degrade the nutritional value of the proteins in the egg powder.

    A lot of academic research has been done on these browning reactions and they all show serious problems in nutrition and digestibility.

    Not Convinced OvaEasy Eggs are good?

    Read this review for the OvaEasy Eggs.



    "The Maillard, or nonenzymatic browning reaction between reducing sugars and proteins is known to cause serious deterioration of the nutritional quality of foods during processing and storage." Physiological, Toxicological, and Nutritional Aspects of Various Maillard Browned Proteins

    "... browning reactions of amino acids and proteins with carbohydrates, oxidized lipids, and oxidized phenols cause deterioration of food during storage and processing. The loss in nutritional quality and potentially in safety is attributed to destruction of essential amino acids, decrease in digestibility, inhibition of proteolytic and glycolytic enzymes, interaction with metal ions, and formation of antinutritional and toxic compounds." Food Browning and Its Prevention: An Overview

    Our OvaEasy Egg Crystals last 7 years and we have the test results to prove it. Powdered eggs last 1 to 1.5 years at best before serious degradation and browning occurs.

    This is part of the reason why the US Army and Navy no longer use old powdered eggs. Our soldiers deserve better...and so does your family.

    So what's the difference between OvaEasy Egg Crystals and old powdered eggs?

    Old powdered eggs (dehydrated eggs) are made with an old technology and taste bad! They're dried at such high temperatures that the taste of fresh eggs is ruined. Too much heat cooks the eggs during the drying process ... so when you go to cook them later, they end up being cooked twice! How can an egg that's cooked twice taste good?

    OvaEasy Egg Crystals are made with a revolutionary new technology that keeps the flavor and nutrition of fresh eggs intact. All we do is gently evaporate the water in the eggs... that's it. Egg crystals aren't cooked until you cook them! They're dried with a special low temperature process that protects the proteins, vitamins and minerals... and most importantly the flavor! Best of all, they're 100% all-natural, pure whole egg.

    Long-term food storage, camping and emergency food

    What is OvaEasy good for? OvaEasy is ideal for long-term food storage, hiking and camping. It's shelf-stable for years with no refrigeration, takes up very little room and tastes just like fresh eggs!

    OvaEasy comes in many different packaging configurations to suit your needs. It's canned in #10 cans for emergency food storage (7 year shelf-life) or packaged in individual pouches for camping (30 month shelf-life). We also have larger pouch sizes available for long term food storage without the cans or just to always have wholesome eggs on hand no matter the situation.

    All-natural Egg Crystals

    Have you ever heard of sun-dried tomatoes? We decided to take a hint from Mother Nature and copy her at her best. We've discovered a way to use the same principles that go into making sun-dried fruits and apply it to one of Mother Nature's most amazing foods...egg!

    We start with wholesome fresh eggs and gently evaporate the water, leaving only little crystals of pure egg. That's why we call them egg crystals!

    Other powdered eggs

    Other dehydrated and powdered eggs are dried at very high temperatures. High temperature cooks the eggs during the drying process which is why they lose their fresh taste.

    Our unique technology

    Our process is special because it works at low-temperature and doesn't damage the flavor or functionality of the eggs. That way, when you go to cook our egg crystals later, they taste just like fresh eggs! All you need to do is add the water we evaporated back in and you're ready to go.

    What about freeze-dried eggs?

    Freeze-drying also dries with heat but starts with frozen egg instead. Freezing damages an egg's protein which also causes problems with flavor and functionality. That's why we only use fresh eggs, not frozen!

Fast Shipment

I\'m a new customer here but have tried the ova easy eggs before and love them. also the prices are much better than other web sites with one of the fastest shipments I\'ve gotten yet.

Surprised

Today I tried Ova easy eggs breakfast skillet. I raise chickens and eat farm fresh eggs regularly so I was skeptical . I was very pleasantly suprised they were perfectly seasoned and needed no other seasoning, also if no one told me I would not have known the eggs were from a package. They were delicious and I would heartily recommend on flavor alone...

OvaEasy Eggs-4.5 oz pkg.

This is real eggs! I am an egg lover, preparing eggs every day for breakfast in every way possible, so I think I speak with some expertise. OvaEasy\'s powdered eggs are excellent in every way. They taste like fresh-scrambled eggs and have the same consistency. I am amazed. My supply of OvaEasy packets was expiring soon, so I began preparing them daily instead of fresh eggs, and I do not miss my fresh eggs at all. I am now a believer in this company and its product, and I recommend it for everyday use, camping, emergency food supply, boating and cycling trips and more. Also, I have refrigerated the hydrated eggs for a day or two, and the mixture still produces perfect scrambled eggs or omelets. OvaEasy has no additives: nothing but good taste.

OVAEASY EGGS

We were unable to tell that these were not refrigerated fresh eggs when we ate them scrambled. We have all manner and form of dried eggs on hand...but these are much better. Practically speaking this product makes sense - instead of needlessly opening up a #10 can or squad sized MRE tray Yuk! of eggs, you can dole out useable portions in an emergency or take them camping. Yes, they initially cost about 2x as much as fresh - but they don\'t break and won\'t spoil for some time. Additionally you can get a year long supply in one shopping trip. Do get the #10 can for long term large quantity storage as well. We really mean it when we said they taste like fresh eggs.
