Where to Buy Pasteurized Eggs

By January 4, 2011

Follow me on:

Every so often I'll write a blog post about the importance of using pasteurized eggs in culinary preparations like mayonnaise, Hollandaise sauce and Caesar salad dressings. It was ironic, therefore, that until recently, the only store in San Francisco, where I live, that actually carried pasteurized eggs was a place called Bristol Farms, which is all the way downtown and not at all convenient to get to. So I was delighted today to find pasteurized eggs for sale at my neighborhood grocer, Lucky Supermarket.

Raw eggs are a potential source of salmonella bacteria, and salmonella poisoning is the most common form of food poisoning in America. Pasteurization is a process where eggs are gently heated, just enough to kill the salmonella bacteria, but not enough to cook the eggs.

If you're preparing food for very young children, pregnant women, people with compromised immune systems or the elderly — all of whom are at increased risk of food poisoning — pasteurized eggs are the way to go.

Is there a store near you that sells pasteurized eggs? A company called Davidson's Safest Choice sells pasteurized eggs through grocery store chains around the country. You can use their store locator to find a store near you that carries Davidson's pasteurized eggs.

In a pinch, or if you can't find a retailer near you that sells pasteurized eggs, you can always make your own pasteurized eggs at home in the microwave.
