Since they are just vacuum canned where do you store them and how long will they last? Where did you buy 50# of powdered whole egg?
We vacuum canned them AND put in an oxygen absorber.. Our vacuum pulls down to 29 inches so its far better than a food saver. I then pack the 1/2 gallon jars into cardboard boxes in our food storage pantry in the basement to keep out the light.. its cool down there. Should last 15 to 20 years under heavy vacuum. I suppose a mylar bag with oxygen absorber would probably get you 10 to 15 years at least… maybe 20.
I’m an engineer and did some design work for a large factory that produces the powdered eggs. I called up the plant manager and asked him if I could buy a box and he sent me an entire pallet of them for free.. I ended up with ten boxes at 50 lbs each on a pallet.. They’re delicious! I can’t even tell the difference between real eggs or powdered when my wife makes french toast or an omelette.
I kept one box and sold the other nine.. they didn’t even last a week at $180 per box. A 50lb box is the rough equivalent of around 1800 eggs.
