- I would like to ask whether polyethylene glycol (PEG) is used in the manufacture of pasteurised liquid egg whites, e.g. in the separation process or to keep the liquid smooth. If it is not used, what types of substances are used in order to create this product?
Polyethylene glycols are used as coating agents for products. In the case of eggs, someonehas a patent on coating WHOLE eggs. So unless it is experiental, tothe best of my knowledge, this stuff may not be used in liquid egg products manufacture. At the very least, it is not necessary in the conventional process.
