Frozen Whole Eggs and Frozen Egg Whites may be used in equivalent weights to shelled fresh whole eggs.
Dehydrated Egg Mix may be used in most recipes requiring whole eggs as shown in the table above. DO NOT USE RECONSTITUTED EGGS IN UNCOOKED SALAD DRESSINGS OR OTHER RECIPES WHICH DO NOT REQUIRE COOKING. RECONSTITUTED DEHYDRATED EGG MIX SHOULD BE USED WITHIN ONE HOUR UNLESS REFRIGERATED. DO NOT HOLD OVERNIGHT. For greater accuracy, weigh dehydrated egg mix. Use 1 part egg mix with 2-1/2 parts water by weight. (Egg Mix reconstitutes more easily in lukewarm water; however, cool water may be used.) If weighing is not possible, use standardized measuring utensils and pack egg mix.
