Updated April 17, 2017

Powdered eggs are a free-flowing powder product that was originally created for the military. Powdered eggs can last up to 12 months after being opened and up to 10 years if the package is unopened and kept in a sealed, airtight container. Powdered eggs can be used in any recipe that calls for fresh eggs. They also can be used to add protein to shakes and smoothies. According to the Honeyville website, once the powder has been reconstituted, it should be used immediately as though it were a fresh egg.

Place 2 tbps. of powdered, whole egg in a small mixing bowl. Two tablespoons is equivalent to one fresh egg.

Add in 4 tbps. of water while stirring the egg slowly.

Mix well until smooth. The egg should look similar to a freshly whipped egg.
