Egg is a highly nutritious product with a wide use in various foods preparation. Egg can be industrially processed into different egg products, such as egg white, egg yolk, whole egg and several mixes, e.g. by adding sugar or salt. Liquid egg can be packed as such or dried to egg powder.
First, eggs go to a cracker or separator where undesired particles are removed form the egg. Then, if wished so, the egg is mixed with other additives. Next, the mixture will continue to pasteurization, and afterwards, the product is stored in product tanks and further packed. If necessary, egg yolk can be added to get desired dry solids content of the product.
In egg processing, Vaisala K-PATENTS® Sanitary Refractometer measures the dry solids content of the yolk, egg white and whole egg to ensure compliance with product specifications and regulations.
Vaisala K-PATENTS Sanitary Refractometer is 3-A Sanitary certified and thus meets the stringent hygiene requirements for egg refining processes.
