Nutriom Response to USDA Press Release, March 27 2014

Nutriom LLC is a small, family-owned and operated company, founded by an immigrant who came to this country more than 30 years ago looking for opportunity.  Nutriom has developed a new technology for dehydrating eggs using its unique, patent-pending drying technology.  Nutriom produces a dehydrated egg (“Egg Crystals™”) that when mixed with water and cooked, functions and tastes just like fresh eggs.  It is 100% all-natural, pure egg with no added chemicals or preservatives.

Nutriom has been operating its facility in Lacey, WA since 2003 under continuous, full-time inspection by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).  In February of this year we conducted a voluntary recall of some of our products in response to a request from FSIS.  The request was based upon irregularities in recordkeeping that were the responsibility of an individual no longer employed by the company.  There were no suggestions of any food safety problems associated with the product, but we decided to fully cooperate with the agency.

On March 26, FSIS requested that we expand the recall.  Today, we notified FSIS that we are conducting a partial recall expansion of six production lots.  Although products from these lots were tested at an FSIS approved laboratory and found to be safe, we have determined that a technical, non-food safety related error, occurred.  Based upon our research, we concluded that there is no scientific or legal basis for us to further expand the recall beyond these six lots.  We presented FSIS with substantial supporting information on our production practices, including a series of laboratory test results from both private and federal government laboratories confirming microbiological safety.  For reasons that remain unclear to us, these arguments were rejected by FSIS. 

It is important to emphasize that Nutriom has never encountered even a suggestion of any injury or illnesses associated with consumption of its products.  FSIS inspectors had a continuous presence during production since the company’s founding.  Nutriom believes it would be doing a disservice to its customers to recall and destroy wholesome egg products under these circumstances.

Shelf-life


7 year shelf-life in cans

2.5 year shelf-life in pouches

Normal powdered egg shelf-life is only 1 year!

OvaEasy® lasts for 7 years!

Most powdered eggs claim 5 - 10 years shelf-life, but is this really true? Not according to the American Egg Board:

"Plain whole egg solids [powdered egg] have a shelf life of about one month at room temperature and about a year at refrigerated temperatures." www.aeb.org

OvaEasy Egg Crystals have been specially processed using our unique technology to achieve long shelf-life. And since we're a military supplier, we use the US Army Labs shelf-life tests based on the most advanced academic research.

We've also used the same tests on regular powdered eggs and the results show significant degradation and browning after just 1.5 years of accelerated testing.

A lab analysis shows high levels of the molecules furasone, pyranose and pentosine. These molecules are by-products of 'browning' reactions (Maillard reactions) and other chemical reactions. These reactions severely degrade the nutritional value of the proteins in the egg powder.

A lot of academic research has been done on these browning reactions and they all show serious problems in nutrition and digestibility.

"The Maillard, or nonenzymatic browning reaction between reducing sugars and proteins is known to cause serious deterioration of the nutritional quality of foods during processing and storage." Physiological, Toxicological, and Nutritional Aspects of Various Maillard Browned Proteins

"... browning reactions of amino acids and proteins with carbohydrates, oxidized lipids, and oxidized phenols cause deterioration of food during storage and processing. The loss in nutritional quality and potentially in safety is attributed to destruction of essential amino acids, decrease in digestibility, inhibition of proteolytic and glycolytic enzymes, interaction with metal ions, and formation of antinutritional and toxic compounds." Food Browning and Its Prevention: An Overview 

Our OvaEasy Egg Crystals last 7 years and we have the test results to prove it. Powdered eggs last 1 to 1.5 years at best before serious degradation and browning occurs.

This is part of the reason why the US Army and Navy no longer use old powdered eggs. Our soldiers deserve better...and so does your family.
