Whole Egg Processing and Powder Plant Eggs are an excellent food containing many essential nutrients. Two large chicken eggs contains about 12 gm of protein, 1.2 gm of carbohydrate 11 gm of lipids and substantial amount of iron, phosphorous, vitamin A, E, K and most of the B complex vitamins. We can set up minimum commercially viable capacity processing 60000 eggs per day on turnkey basis. This type of plant will be operated for 20 hours a day to process 60000 eggs and producing Whole Egg Powder and Egg Shell Powder. Input / Output on per day basis Input eggs: 60000 eggs Total weight (each of 54 gm): 3240 kg Weight of edible portion (egg yolk + egg white): 2851 kg Weight of egg shell: 389 kg Output Whole Egg Powder: 700 kg Output Dry Egg Shell: 376 kg Budgetary price for Plant & Machineries of above capacity is around INR 32.50 million.

Dirty eggs are sent to a washing machine before they are broken. Rotten eggs are removed by candling. Egg breaking is to be done manually (continuous egg breaking & separation machines are available for higher capacity and costly). A skilled operator can break 500 to 800 eggs per hour. In the production process of whole-egg powder, whole eggs are homogenized, filtered to remove membranes and fragments of shell pieces. Pasteurization will be done at 64 to 66°C, with a holding time of 2 to 4 min. This ensures inactivation of most of the microbes such as E. coli and Salmonella which can cause ill health, if not inactivated. After pasteurization whole eggs (solids content 20 to 27%) are fed to the spray dryer. The drying-air inlet temperature ranges between 150 and 200°C. Final powder has a moisture content of 2 to 4% and bulk density of 0.3 – 0.35 g/cm³. The powder is then packed suitably after subsequent cooling. Proposed project goes a long way to promote poultry industry and provide rural employment. This could be the export oriented unit and can be maintained at low cost. Egg powder is widely used as food ingredients in following industries: • Bakeries for manufacture of cakes, biscuits and cookies • Confectionary products • Ice cream and dairy products • Ready to eat products and soup mixes • Health foods • Noodles and pasta products • Mayonnaise and soup preparations • Cosmetics and shampoo How we could serve you?
