I find it hard to believe that it is enough cheaper to produce fake eggs to make it worthwhile.

Well that was informative. Not a verybgood scam if only 1 out of a dozen were bad

From a googled description:

Citing an anonymous source, the paper outlined how the fakes were made: prepare a mould, then mix the right amounts of resin, starch, coagulant and pigments to make egg white. Sodium alginate, extracted from brown algae, gives the egg white the wanted viscosity. Then add the fake egg yolk, a different mix of resin and pigments. Once the proper shape is achieved, an amalgamate of paraffin wax, gypsum powder and calcium carbonate makes for a credible shell

So. The Chinese make fake eggs which are 6 ¢ cheaper than supermarket eggs using more time and effort that the average meth lab..

Good on you for making us aware of yet another attempt to subvert our society by those who promote the liberal gay agenda

I've seen eggs look like this after being forgotten in a too-cold area of the fridge and get partially frozen and dehydrated.

People need to get out of the house more.

2013-06-16 10:22:21 AM  
Hmmm, from another site:

Fake egg's shell is made of calcium carbonate. Egg yolk and egg white are made of sodium alginate, alum, gelatin, eatable calcium chloride and then add water and food coloring. First pour a set amount of sodium alginate into warm water and mix it into egg white like shape, then mix it with gelatin together with benzoic acid, alum and other chemicals to make the egg white. Egg yolk is just adding lemon yellow food coloring. Together with calcium chloride to form egg mixture into themold to produce the egg membrane. Egg shell is made of paraffin wax, gypsum powder, calcium carbonate and other materials.For those familiar with modernist cuisine, this is made similarly to pearled sauces. And if someone is making fake eggs with alginate then they've got a stolen cheap source.

Came to say this.  Going through all the trouble of manufacturing fake eggs to pass off as real eggs for a measly profit?  Bullshiat.

But selling mistakenly frozen or otherwise off eggs to humans super cheap instead of tossing them to pigs?  Happens all the time, really.  Nothing to see here.
 
2013-06-16 10:28:08 AM  
That sounds like a lot of work.  Can't we just get some chickens to lay real eggs and say that they're fake?

Sometimes I accidentally set a bowl of hot leftovers on top of the egg carton. The eggs can get a strange look to them, and usually only one or two get like that.

Cost half as much to produce compared to real eggs. Sold 6 cent cheaper.

That's not a fake egg, that's a frozen egg.
 
2013-06-16 11:02:12 AM  
Ok, supposing you've found a way to make fake eggs cheaper than the real ones... Why would you bother to make a separate fake white and fake yolk? It's not like people are going to x-ray the things.

The only thing that goes on top of the egg carton is MAYBE a package of English Muffins. Or other similarly sized/shaped lightweight food.

So what, they cost like -2 cents to make?  I think a dozen eggs is about $1 here.

Why? The bottom carton of eggs on a shelf in the grocery store has 5+ pounds of eggs on top of it. Some leftover stew in tupperware isn't going to break through.

I've been in the egg business for 32 years. While I have seen this twice, both times were because processing shut down for lunch and the eggs in the washer were there too long with excessive wash water temp kind of cooked. Never seen the whites be the color of the one in TFA though.

The reason he asked why is because somebody stuck something hot on the eggs and it cooked them a bit in the fridge and he admitted that he is the cause of cooking the eggs by putting hot things on top of them and that he continues to put hot things on the eggs. So, he asked why.

Maybe in areas where fake eggs are prevalent they'll candle them before buying? Just a guess.

I've heard in other countries, it's illegal to soak eggs to wash them, the US is kind of unique that way.

The reason being that shells are very absorbent, the feces gets absorbed inside the egg.

I always get on my mom for soaking her eggs to get the poo off. No one wants to eat poo, even if it is organic!
