Yes, finally I managed to correct my Artwork for the Dried EGGS Packet and did run some tests with different pieces of cardboard. Beginning this year I wrote an article about it. I did get my question answered afterwards, about what stood on top of the pack and now I can take this Dried EGGS Packet into production. On the internet you already find a reproduction of a wrapper, but not of a complete cardboard Packet. The original packet came with an inner bag. I don’t have the inner bag in my pack, but maybe I might put one in in the future, so you can put Powdered eggs in and use it for real.

Powdered eggs

Powdered eggs are fully dehydrated eggs. They are made using spray drying in the same way that powdered milk is made. The major advantages of powdered eggs over fresh eggs are the price, reduced weight per volume of whole egg equivalent, and the shelf life. Other advantages include smaller usage of storage space, and lack of need for refrigeration. Powdered eggs can be used without rehydration when baking, and can be rehydrated to make dishes such as scrambled eggs and omelettes.

Powdered eggs were used in the United Kingdom during World War II for rationing. Powdered eggs are also known as dried eggs, and colloquially during the period of rationing in the UK, as Ersatz eggs.

The modern method of manufacturing powdered eggs was developed in the 1930s by Albert Grant and Co. of the Mile End Road, London. This cake manufacturer was importing liquid egg from China and one of his staff realised that this was 75% water. An experimental freeze-drying plant was built and tried. Then a factory was set up in Singapore to process Chinese egg. As war approached, Grant transferred his dried egg facility to Argentina. The British Government lifted the patent during the war and many other suppliers came into the market notably in the United States. The Chinese were airdrying eggs that had been whipped and left in the sun to dry and then ground since the Middle Ages. Early importers to the US included Vic Henningsen Sr. and others in the UK.

Powdered eggs have a storage life of 5 to 10 years when Stored without oxygen in a cool storage environment.
