Haven't used liquid eggs mainly because we raise our own chickens so it hasn't made sense to use them. However if things change and I get out on my own... But I can still get free eggs from my parents.

Liquid eggs are pretty good, make sure to seal the cap well and keep in coldest part of the fridge for best results.

I have used the liquid eggs after the 7 days opened time frame but I never went past 14 days. I write the date on the lid in sharpie for anything like that and just check it before using.

Sometimes I can find the liquid eggs in smaller containers in a three-pack that is in the frozen food section. That works much better for me. I only need one small carton for what I'm cooking and the rest keep very well a longer time. Can't find these at every grocery store, but they are worth the search. I find them easy to thaw in my microwave. There are directions about how to do that -- works just fine!

Cheers!

The liquid eggs come from cracked eggs, so yes, they are the same.

Expiration and 'use by' dates are the very shortest amount of safe time. The vendors use a date that makes sure *no one* has to risk spoilage under normal circumstances. That means that the majority of the time the product lasts longer than the packing says it will.

A 'best by' date doesn't mean that it's gone bad on that date. It's just not at it's best anymore. I eat things that are not the best all the time. Sometimes my celery stick is starting to bend by the time I eat it - it's still good, it's just not best.

I agree with everyone who suggests smelling, feeling, looking at the item. Watch for cans rusting or denting. And, um, practice smelling your food when you bring it home so that you know when it starts smelling!

I recently purchased a container of liquid egg whites but have not opened it yet. Can anyone tell me if they are the same as a cracked egg white?

Most of the "liquid" eggs are already pasteurized (or at least the ones I have used are) so it is generally okay to use after the 7 day period. However, you should check them before each use (i.e. has the texture, smell, etc. changed?) to minimize the chance of using a spoiled product.

I will use anything past the date, which is usually a sell by date, as long as the smell, texture, and taste are all still good. Milk doesn't generally last too long in my house (my daughter is a milkaholic), but there are the times that I am not sure about milk even before we hit that date. I won't use anything I am unsure about. I find most things will get a funk and/or a fuzz to them when they're no good though.

I've often wondered about that with yogurt, milk, etc.

Honestly, I can't afford to waste anything- so I use them after the 7 day rule. As long as they look, smell, and (once cooked) taste ok, I don't worry about it. Hasn't hurt me yet.

The seven days apply. The expiration date is for purchasing and use of the SEALED food.

So the container says to use them with in 7 days of opening. Is that really necessary or can I use them until the expiration date??
