Can you tell me what a "pulped" frozen egg is? How is it prepared for freezing?

I have no idea what a pulped frozen egg is. The only time I have seen gray or greenish color in an egg is when it is over cooked from hard boiling. The yolk turns grayish green.

I have the same question ~ what are pulped frozen eggs? Like Amber, I've only seen green/gray egg yolks that have been hard boiled too long. Why can't you use fresh eggs? Where is Darwin? I have a great recipe for zucchini frittata (like a crustless quiche) if you would like it, but it uses fresh eggs.

Pulped eggs are eggs which are removed from the shells before they are packaged for sale. You may buy whole egg pulp (whites and yokes), egg whites or egg yokes.

Eggs which are not grade A are often shelled and sold as whole egg pulp for institutional or commercial use or for specific separated egg product uses.

Thanks for the information, Aurora. I think I'll just stick to fresh eggs still in their shells!
