Hi azaam nafiz,

There are several quite detailed reference documents on this forum concerning shell egg processing but i am guessing you have seen these already. :smile:

i don't offhand recall any of them specifically discussing yr query, from memory the usual problem is whether chemicals used require additional water washing or not. Some are authorised (US) to not.

Perhaps some expansion / clarification of yr (brief) OP might help :rolleyes: ?

Kind Regards,

Washing can cause more harm than good , I would say. Can you perhaps keep the dirty ones aside? I will suggest to dip the eggs in a Hydrogen peroxide of 10 % dosage to trail.

Hello Azaam, you may want to check out the Secure Egg Supply website, it offers a tremendous amount of free information for download including guidelines, procedures, checklists etc. I think you will find it a great help.

Regards,
Simon

  • is it ok to soak eggs during washing?

                     It is not okay to soak eggs during washing.  If after the initial washing the eggs are still dirty, they are to be removed at the candlelight and placed on a flat to be rewashed/processed.

  • is it ok if we do not wax them after washing (as per my country regulations it is not allowed)?

                     In the US it is okay not to wax them after washing.  Sometimes eggs are oiled, but not in all cases.

  • what are the detergents & disinfectants applicable

                     There are several food grade detergents that can be used.  nsf.org has a large listing of these items.  Also a chemical representative can point you into the correct direction.  It is best to wash eggs at least 90F or 20 degrees higher than the internal temperature of the egg and with a pH above a 10.
