I've had fresh eggs and they do taste different. A lot of people think there is something wrong with them but that's the difference between fresh and not fresh. I've also heard that eggs on the shelf can really be past their date but we would never know it - they send the eggs back to be recartoned and redated then put back on the shelf again so unless you go fresh fresh you never will know just how fresh your eggs truly are.

I own a little farm... we raise vegetables, garden plants and CHICKENS....Our Farm is Citygirl Farm, where the chicks rule the roost. In Springhills Ohio.

I am appaled at the ingrediants listed for eggs at these companys in the Forbes article.
The egg is a darn near perfect food. Egg Yolks and their cholesteral are debateable, but honestly, really??? Hard to mess up an egg but these guys have done it!

I would not even sell any of these companies an egg let alone eat one of theirs......gross!

If you have a chicken farmer in your area that produces eggs by free ranging them, and feeding them greens, go get yourself a dozen and enjoy what an egg is suppose to taste like. When we give our eggs away, and believe me, we give away...way more than we have ever sold...people say, I can not believe the color of the yolk, its orange! The white did not run all over the pan, it actually stood up! How do you get eggs to taste like that? We dont do anything to them is the answer, we let the egg, just be the egg!

Ok sorry about the soap box, but when its your livelyhood, it becomes personal.
Get your eggs at the farmers market folks. The USDA regulates us to make sure our practices and refrideration meets pretty tough standards. Small farmers that is, I have no idea how corporations get away with this stuff.

After reading ( www.forbes.com/sites/daviddisalvo/20

/04/13/before-you-eat-that-breakfastR>-sandwich-read-this/
) I have completely changed my mind about subway egg whites and frozen egg whites in general. I've done a bit more reading about frozen egg whites and I'm surprised with all the stuff they are putting into them. So I'm going to try to make and free my own and see how that works out for me.

Wonder if you'd ask - would they sell you just some of the egg white patties that you could take home and freeze yourself?

Yeah, the subway egg whites are what I wish I could have but cannot even seem to find any frozen egg white patties near me.

I've had the egg white patties at Subway and personally I'm not fond of them. To me they have no taste and I end up salting them a little. I have a cholesterol problem too (genetics the doctor says not food related) but I take a pill and am not limited on food. I would think that making them yourself would be much more flavorful as you could add your own seasoning like italian herbs or parsley or added goodies like onions or green peppers.

my favorite meal at Subway is with the egg white .... I keep the pasteurized egg whites in my fridge at all times because I like eggs but do have a cholesterol problem .... I cook the egg substitute in a small pan and it looks just like the one they use .... you could make up a couple and get a day ahead in the fridge .... I don't see that freezing them would be a problem as long as you don't leave them for a long time .... the packaging says you can freeze them in the boxes they come in so can't see much difference there .... but they do have a limit on how long to keep in the freezer before using ....

Talk to the folks at subway and maybe they can help you out.

I wanted to ask if anyone has ever looked at and/or tried frozen egg white patties? Subway uses them in their breakfast sandwiches and I had the thought this morning that I am always on the go and always rushed (especially in the mornings) and this could possibly be something to include in my freezer.
