What Are Pasteurized Eggs?

  • Learn more
    Pasteurized eggs are regular eggs that have been gently heated and then rapidly cooled to eliminate any harmful bacteria causing salmonella by up to 99%. Safe eggs are increasingly important in Australian kitchens due to a rise in health and safety consciousness among consumers. Additionally, warmer temperatures lead to an increased risk of dangerous bacteria impacting kitchens, making Australia one of the most vulnerable locations globally for salmonella outbreaks. The New South Wales Food Authority conducts regular audits on both farms and kitchens to ensure that Australian businesses meet their stringent safety standards. Authorities actively encourage kitchens to adopt pasteurized eggs to adhere to their safety standards.

    Eggzi is the solution to all hospitality professional’s frustration at the lack of pasteurized eggs available to purchase in Australia. As a kitchen manager, Mark, the founder of Eggzi, was also frustrated with food waste and the limited pasteurized options in Australia. As his kitchen staff continued to waste time cracking eggs, only to use the yolk, or the white exclusively, he thought “there has to be a better way”. Now Mark is the director of the leading provider of the most consistent and highest quality free-range pasteurized eggs Australia has to offer. Investing in quality produce and pasteurized eggs is the best way to keep your kitchen or bar safe and your customers free of harm.

Can I Pasteurize Eggs at Home?

  • Learn more
    Our team are frequently asked for guides on how to pasteurize eggs at home. Our answer is simply this; if it were that easy, all eggs would be pasteurized. The pasteurization process is technical and demands the attention of a certified egg pasteurizer. Sure, you can try it at home for one-off egg consumption purposes, but lasting results will be inconsistent. Sourcing eggs from a premium producer like Eggzi gives you the confidence that traces of bacteria are almost certainly eliminated and are safe to consume. Egg pasteurizers are experts at the egg pasteurization process. They adopt HACCP equipment in controlled conditions to deliver safety without compromising the egg quality or flavour.

We know that to deliver a premium product, we needed to find the highest quality producers. We’re lucky in NSW to be close to luscious farmlands in the Hunter Valley and Riverina regions.

The free-range eggs are then pasteurized in a HACCP certified venue. Lastly, we partner with some of Australia’s leading distributors to supply restaurants, cafes, bars and commercial kitchens everywhere in Australia safer eggs.

Are Eggzi Products Always Made from Free Range Eggs?

  • Learn more
    Yes. At Eggzi, we settle for nothing but the best, and we only partner with Australian farmers who share the same core values as us. Food safety at Eggzi is of utmost importance; however, our producers must adhere to other fundamental values, including hen welfare, sustainable farming, and a passion for quality produce. To be classified as free-range, hens must have regular outdoor daylight access for at least eight hours a day with the freedom to forage outdoors.

    “We make sure they have the best grain, access to water and protection. Everything is done by hand. We pick the eggs by hand. We can be a really hands-on farm because it’s smaller than other egg farms.” – Hunter Valley Ranges Organic

What is Classified as Free Range?

  • Learn more
    To be nationally recognized as free-range eggs, hens need to have “meaningful and regular” access to the outdoors. The hens’ density should be no more than one square metre and a maximum stocking density of 10,000 hens per hectare. Compare this with the CSIRO Model Code of Practice which stated that there should only be 1,500 hens per hectare (8,500 less than the national definition) on an open range. The best way to understand where your eggs come from is by knowing your producer. If you, like 93% of other Australia, prioritize the welfare of hens, there are a few reasons why we think you’ll love Eggzi’s free-range eggs.

    We source our eggs from regional Australia’s best free range producers. Let’s take a look at some of our producers and why we think you’ll love them as much as we do.

    The Caccamo family farm is set in the Wollemi National Park’s lush valleys with a 1km frontage to the McDonald River. At just 1000 hens per hectare, the 40-hectare farm features both hilly and flat areas, where the hens are freely pastured on pesticide-free grasslands and enjoy the certified organic feed.

Who Can Benefit from Pasteurized Eggs?

  • Learn more
    Five main groups can benefit significantly from using the safest pasteurized eggs Australia has to offer in their venues; restaurants, bars, cafes, commercial kitchens, pregnant women.

    1. Restaurants

    There’s no denying it – restaurant kitchens are hectic. Chefs, kitchen hands and management are constantly under pressure to get things right. With so many factors to consider in a commercial kitchen, it’s easy to let food safety slip in your priorities order. That’s where Eggzi enters to deliver the highest quality pasteurized eggs Australia offers. Our pasteurized eggs are pre-separated and conveniently packaged in a sachet with a spout for easy, accurate pouring. An easy to use product is precisely what chefs need when managing competing priorities whilst remaining safe in a busy kitchen. Head over to our products & orders page to discover our range of pasteurized eggs now.

    1. Bars

    Egg whites are an integral part of every bar behind the scenes. More than a couple of classic cocktail options require the use of egg white. Pasteurized egg white products minimize waste in bars and can significantly increase efficiencies. In a recent interview, the founder of Eggzi expressed his frustrations at food waste in kitchens.

    “The bar was cracking eggs, wasting the yolks and using the whites to make Whisky Sour’s to-order.” Eggzi’s Bartender’s Egg Whites minimise waste as they are pre-separated whilst being a safer, innovative option for busy bar managers to implement in their operations. The best part about using pasteurized egg white for your bar is that it takes the focus away from bartenders being safety-compliant. Taking away one of their main concerns gives them the freedom to experiment with new flavour combinations and come up with seasonal products for your bar. Who knows? It might just be the next thing to make your bar stand out from the crowd.

    1. Cafés

    Even cafes can benefit from pasteurized eggs to minimize the risk of salmonella and other harmful bacteria coming into contact with your customers. There are countless egg-based products that cafes use, not just on their breakfast menu. Got fries? You’ll probably want an authentic aioli with that. Burger? Put some mayo on it. Got a slice fridge? We’ll bet any money the ingredients contain at least one type of egg variety. Work smarter, not harder, with pasteurized eggs for your café.

    1. Commercial Kitchens

    Large licensed venues are arguably the most susceptible to bacteria causing salmonella and compromised safety. Facility managers will understand the repercussions of delivering food that doesn’t meet New South Wales Food Authority strict guidelines. Even your customers will expect more from your kitchen in a health-conscious world. So, lead the pack. Establish the best food safety standards in your organization and be an example to other commercial kitchens.

    1. Pregnant Women

    Pregnant women can safely consume pasteurized eggs. Although measures can be undertaken to ensure that pregnant women consume regular eggs safely, such as heating them adequately and cooking them through, sometimes it better to be safe than sorry, right? Cooking eggs doesn’t solve the problem of raw pasteurized egg white in typical desserts such as meringue. Our HACCP certified eggs are safe in pregnancy as they reduce the risk of salmonella by up to 99%. We highly recommend sourcing Australian pasteurized eggs from HACCP certified egg pasteurizers to ensure you’re getting the highest quality, most consistent and safest result.
