Quick Tips

EGG STORAGE

Keep your eggs nice and fresh in the fridge, in the box, to keep them away from strong smells.

COOKING

Remove eggs from the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking – this allows them to come to room temperature.

LEFTOVERS

Left over egg whites can be stored in a small box in the fridge for upto 1 week or frozen in plastic bags for 3 months – remember to note the quantity and date on the bag.

Left over egg yolks keep in the fridge for 2 days, make sure they’re closely covered. They don’t freeze so well though. Instead add them to mashed potato; use them to glaze pastry; or use them to bind together stuffings, meatball or burger mixtures.

Quality Assurance

Food Safety

Egg Farmers of Canada operates an on-farm food safety programme based on HACCP principles. HACCP, or Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point, is an internationally accepted method for determining risks within a production or processing facility and adopting ways to reduce those risks. Our on-farm program, known as Start Clean-Stay CleanTM  has been technically reviewed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and in 2011, after CFIA determines its requirements for third-party auditing, we expect the program to be officially recognized by the Agency.
