Tips for purchasing eggs and eggs safety/handling
• Buy eggs that your grocer has kept refrigerated or stored in a cool place.
• Use them within 4 to 5 weeks of the packed date or 3 to 4 weeks of purchase.
• Eggs freshness is influenced by temperature, humidity and handling. The satisfactory conditions are
temperature at 8°C - 15°C, and relative humidity of 70% - 85%.
• Wash your hands before and after handling the eggs.
• Eggs are placed in their cartons large end up to keep the air cell in place and the yolk centered.
• Carefully check for cracks/ breakage. If cracks are found, discard/dispose the egg.
• Rotate eggs - First in / First out
• If an egg is accidentally dropped on the floor, sprinkle it heavily with salt for easy clean up. How to determine if eggs are fresh.
• When rolled across a flat surface, fresh raw eggs roll wobbly.
• A fresh egg will sink in water, while an older egg will stand up, because as the egg gets older the air space in the egg increases and causes it to float.
• Old eggs dash, when shaken, as the egg now contains more air.
• A fresh yolk is convex and firm. Old egg white is watery instead of jelly like.
• Fresh eggs are usually difficult to peel when hard cooked.
• When the appearance of the egg white is cloudy, it is a sign of freshness, not age, because of the high carbon dioxide content when the egg is laid.

How to keep your eggs fresh
• Keep them refrigerated immediately after purchase as eggs freshness can be affected by temperature and humidity.
• Store eggs in their own paper cartons when refrigerating. Eggs can have as many as 17,000 tiny pores over their surfaces and thus might absorb refrigerator odors and flavours. Paper cartons prevent eggs from absorbing the odors.
• Store them on the inside refrigerator shelf, not in the door, as the door area tends not to be cold enough.
• Keep your eggs away from strong odors such as salted fish, dried cuttle fish, onions, cheese etc
• Never wash your eggs before storing them because this will remove the natural protective coating
• Allow no more than two hours at room temperature for eggs, egg mixture, or cooked egg dishes
• Refrigerate leftovers immediately in shallow containers, reheat thoroughly and consume within 2 days
