Egg products are processed and convenient forms of eggs for commercial, food service, and home use. These are refrigerated liquid products, frozen products, dried and specialty products. When shell eggs are delivered to the breaking plant, they are put into refrigerated holding rooms. Before breaking, they are washed in water at least 20 degrees warmer than that of the egg and spray-rinsed with a sanitizing agent. They may be moist, but not wet when they are broken.

Egg products processing includes breaking eggs, filtering, mixing, stabilizing, blending, pasteurizing, cooling, freezing or drying, and packaging. Egg products include whole eggs, whites, yolks, and various processed and pasteurized blends, with or without non-egg ingredients.
