Egg white solid

 

Possible use of technology Labelling
Enzymes, produced with help of GM micro organisms no
Feeding with GM feed no

 

Description

Egg white solids or egg yolk solids are dried, pulverised egg white, egg yolk or whole egg.

Application

Gene technology

Enzymes, for which a genetical production is possible are used for processing of dried egg products:

  • Lipase: degreasing the egg-white, if egg yolk is still present after isolation.
  • Glucoseoxidase and catalase: glucose occurs naturally in egg-white and would turn brown when the egg white is dried to powder. For this reason, glucose is degraded by the enzymes cited above.

Labelling: neither the egg white solids nor the enzymes that have been produced with genetically modified microorganisms are subject to a labelling requirement.

Feed: feed used in laying hen productions can contain different raw material and additives, in which gene technology plays a role.

Labelling feed: feeds that contain raw material or additives derived from GMOs are subject to a labelling requirement. On the contrary, produce such as milk, meat or eggs from animals that have been fed with such feed are not subject to a labelling requirement.
