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?
Be yourself, you are unique. Remember there is no one out there more qualified for the job.
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've backslidden... I reached my goal and was now maintaining, but now I need to lose 10 pounds and firm up.
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 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.
