    Default Pasturized Eggs ????

    I keep reading on here about pasturized eggs. How the heck can eggs
    be pasturized? I mean, they're inside a shell. Do they inject
    something into the shell, or what? This really has me puzzled.

    They use a water bath process and then coat the shells with a wax to keep
    them clean and sealed. Evidently it is not hot enough to cook the albumen.
    Pasteurized foods are not sterile either. I've heard it affects the taste,
    I've heard it does not affect the taste but since I've never had one, I
    don't know.

    I think not positive - Neutron radiation for eggs in their shell.
    However, most pasteurized eggs I see are in cartons not in their shell.
    I think, not positive one can put egg yolks in a Bain Marie and take out
    the egg just before it starts to solidify.

    You take them to church and have them blessed by the clergyman.

    Even when I was in the navy eggs were pasteurized and prepped for sea,
    they were passed through a hot olive oil bath... only thing noticeable
    was the shells looked like they were treated with Armor-All... had to
    salt the shells so ya could get a grip on them. No foods we consume
    are sterile (nor are our kitchens), there's a big difference between
    sanitized and sterilized.

    I've used them now and then when a recipe calls for raw eggs - can't
    make meringue out of the whites, though .... when I make mousse which
    calls for raw separated eggs, I use pasteurized yolks and either a
    whites-only product, or "just whites" meringue powder.

    I don't notice any taste difference. At my supermarket, they're
    always in the shell.

    This article seems interesting.
    http://www.christonium.com/culinaryr..._With_Raw_Eggs

    Not sure but what I have read, pasteurized eggs using the baths only remove
    contaminates from the shell. Does not completely Pasteurize the yolks. So
    pasteurized eggs may not still be safe to consume raw.

    It is the last line of the web site you provide that bothers me.
    "Pasteurized outside and inside of the SHELL". States nothing of the yolk.
    Is this a play with words? The site I listed seems to indicate that the
    yolks are not pasteurized only the shells. I would like the site on safe
    eggs state the "yolks" are pasteurized to make things clearer.

    Yolk are inside the shell. How is this a play on words?

    Read the rest:
    Pasteurized shell eggs keep your kitchen safe from cross contamination and
    allow you to prepare and eat eggs any way you like — even undercooked eggs
    and raw eggs. Enjoy eggs over easy or sunny-side up, raw in sauces and
    Caesar salads, lightly cooked in custards and desserts. With Safest Choice™
    you can even enjoy raw cookie dough because you’ve made the Safest Choice!

    Ok, found the statement you listed in the FAQ section. It was not on the
    introduction page listed. I admit the part does state" Eat egg any way you
    like". I will go back and rethink my position on this.

    I don't know what he expected inside of the shell if it wasn't yolks

    Partly correct, I thought that the only way to safely but controversial way
    to pasteurize shell eggs was through radiation, just like they do meat at
    fast food chains.

    in the past water baths did not completely pasteurize the shelled egg
    without cooking the whites in the shells. Perhaps they have perfected the
    water bath. Still I would like more details of this process and why it
    cannot be done at home?

    I think the yolks would have to be pasteurized if the inside of the
    shell is. Seems like a silly statement.
