I found them in the grocery store by the regular eggs, too. I had to hunt around a little bit, but then I found them.

I've looked at all the grocery stores here, but all they have are those Egg Beaters and one other brand. No liquid egg whites.... Typical of this area:)

They have them in my grocery store with the rest of the eggs and Egg Beaters.

You know, I don't think I have ever seen liquid egg whites sold in stores here. I have read alot of good things about them though. Maybe they have them in a health food store???

I also buy these when they are on sale and freeze them until needed. They take a few days to defrost in the freezer. I was wondering, has anybody frozen these in ice cube trays that way you can take out what you need the night before and they will defrost faster?

Thanks for info, Everyone!

Freezing works, huh? That could be a good solution to buying the larger sized, better priced container.

I found a 3-pack (kind of like yogurt containers) in the market today that has the equivalent of about 5 egg whites in each container, that way I won't have to have the whole thing open at once.

I've used them recently and while they look odd coming out of the carton (more liquidy than real egg whites) they cook up fine and taste great. I need the convenience of a carton since I use them at work in a microwave (spray a bowl and microwave 3/4 cup, add 1/2 oz part skim mozzarella and add 1-2 tbsp salsa - mmmmm). It works great, and I am not worried about breaking eggs on the way to work (or a coworker breaking my eggs!).

I use them all the time. If I find them on sale I buy extra and freeze them.

I love them and use them all the time. The carton should have an expiration date for how long they will be ok if un-opened. I believe I have used them up to a couple weeks (2 weeks) after opening without any issues.

FYI... I use "All Whites Liquid Egg Whites" (they are in a green and white container)

Also, they are pasteurized so you can eat them without cooking them if desired.

I have been using liquid egg whites for a few weeks now, and I think the quality is fine. I've wondered if they are considered okay for clean eating, but I'm like you...I don't want to throw out all of the yolks!
I can't remember how long they stay good, but I've never had a carton go bad on me, so it has to be a good couple of weeks after purchase, maybe even longer. (???)

I used to use them until I figured out how much cheaper it was just to use real eggs and throw out the yokes. Then I got over feeling bad about throwing out the yokes emoticon
Also, I think they're only good for 7 days once you open the package. I might be wrong about that, but I think I'm correct (it's 7-10 days I'm pretty certain).
Just fyi...if you let your egg whites sit in a bowl on your counter for about 10 minutes before you whip them up they'll get a lot more fluffy.

Have any of you tried liquid eggs whites - they are sold in paperboard cartons, like egg beaters. Only they are 100% egg white - no additives.

Since I'm focusing on getting that protein level up, and eating more egg whites, I feel badly about throwing away the yolks all the time.

Is the quality okay?
How long does the container stay "fresh" once it's opened?

Thanks!
