Pasteurized egg whites

Does anyone know where I can buy pasteurized egg whites?
My local Migros and Coop do not have them.

They are sold through Leshop.ch, but the minimum order value is 99chf so that's not really an option:

Would be great if anyone could help me on this one. btw, I'm in the Zuerich area.

Re: Pasteurized egg whites

In Fribourg, you can find this at Manor. It is produced by the same company, Lüchinger & Schmid. Try the Manor in Zurich, it's bigger than the one in Fribourg, they must have it. Good luck !

Re: Pasteurized egg whites

Thanks for the tip, but as far as I know the Manor in Zurich does not have a food/supermarket department? Will probably check it out tomorrow, and also go to Jelmoli... they often have stuff that I can't find anywhere else.

Manor Zurich has no food department. Try Jelmoli or Globus delicatessen.

Re: Pasteurized egg whites

Oh, I'm really sorry !
I've been 2 times in the Manor in Zurich to buy shoes, it seemed huge compared to the one in Fribourg, so I assumed it must be a food department somewhere as well...
On the other hand, we don't have Globus or Jelmoli in Fribourg Lucky you !

Re: Pasteurized egg whites

There's also the St. Annahof on the Bahnhofstrasse. Basically, it's a Coop, but their selection is HUGE in comparison to the run-of-the-mill Coops.

Re: Pasteurized egg whites

I've seen both egg whites and egg yolks in Migros but they aren't always there. Perhaps this time of year, with all the Christmas baking, they might be back again. They were/are in the cooler section in amongst the Christmas biscuit doughs, ready-made pastry and the pre-formed flan cases.

Re: Pasteurized egg whites

Thanks for the input so far. I have been to Globus, Jelmoli, Coop Annahof, Migros Loewenstrasse and a few more places, but without luck

I'm giving up for now, but if anyone finds those pasteurized egg whites around Zurich: please update this thread

Re: Pasteurized egg whites

Here are a couple of tips on what to do with extra whites/yolks of eggs - while you're waiting for the separated eggs to re-appear on the supermarket shelves:

You can keep eggyolks and eggwhites - lightly whisked - in the fridge for approx. 2 days. Use then for cooked dishes only.

Deep freezing:
You can deep-freeze egg yolks, whisk a little and add some salt.
Eggwhites: whisk a little and deep-freeze (no salt).
Important: note the date and number of yolks/eggwhites on the container.
They can be frozen up to 3 months. Thaw eggs in the fridge, not at room temperature.

Uses for left-over eggyolks:
Brush puff pastry or biscuits (Swiss "Mailanderli" for example) or use in mayonnaise. You can also put eggyolks into an omelette and add milk oder mineral water to substitute for the white.

Uses for left-over eggwhites:
Meringues and Swiss biscuits, such as: Brunsli, Zimtsterne (cinamon stars), Makrönli (macaroons ?).

Re: Pasteurized egg whites

Since I am trying to go for the whole low carb thing because it's the thing that works best for me and I hate wasting food (i.e. just chucking out egg yolks as the option of baking stuff with them is out), I was wondering if there is any news on this? I don't order 99 Francs worth of food EVER so leshop is out.

Use them to make mayonnaise or ice-cream!

Which part of low-carb did you not understand?

Have been googling intensely and it seems that Lüchinger and Schmid are quite close to me, will call them tomorrow to see if there is a shop on there premises or something like that. Also saw that they have a "bio" option, which I would much prefer, want happy hen egg whites!

Check the food departments of Jelmoli and Globus, too. They have quite an extensive baking section so you might be lucky there.

Mayonnaise and ice-cream are high fat, not carbs! (well, mayonnaise for sure has 0 carbs, and ice-cream has only the carbs you add, use fake sugar and it has none as well! )

Re: Pasteurized egg whites

Ok, update, I just phoned Lüchinger and Schmid - they have a shop in Kloten (and elsewhere but I only asked about the Kloten one) where one can purchase all their egg products on Tuesdays and Fridays between 13.00 and 17.00. I'll probably head there tomorrow and check out what it's like.

Yeah but fake sugar tastes like ass — and sugar is necessary for the texture of ice cream (that's why sugar-free ice cream needs more stabilizers and stuff, to make its texture palatable). Also, milk and cream have carbs — lactose (milk sugar).

In practice, ice cream contains huge amounts of sugar and thus carbs.

Re: Pasteurized egg whites

An update: I found an online fitness shop that sells shelf-stable pasteurized egg whites: http://fitness-nahrungsmittel.com/ep.../Products/0004

I might need to try this out, for cocktail making.

(They also sell powdered egg white, which of course can be reconstituted.)
