Cooked egg products are essential in food service and commercial food processing – these products are used in businesses ranging from restaurants and pubs to the NHS, schools and residential care homes.
Overview of process
Pre-cooked omelettes and scrambled egg are packed into sealed containers and then frozen, making them ready to heat and serve.
Hard-boiled eggs are mechanically or hand-peeled, then packed in a solution of sodium citrate and 0.1% sodium benzoate or potassium sorbate to inhibit the growth of mould.
Cooked egg products should be kept refrigerated or frozen according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
