So, what is pasteurized egg yolks?

Pasteurized egg yolks are a versatile ingredient used in various baking and cooking applications. They are made by heating the egg yolks to destroy harmful bacteria while maintaining the quality of the yolk. Pasteurization ensures that the egg yolks are safe to consume and minimizes the risk of foodborne illnesses. These yolks have a smooth, creamy texture and provide a rich flavor to dishes like custards, mayonnaise, and hollandaise sauce. They are also ideal for making meringues, ice cream, and other desserts that require raw or partially cooked eggs. With their convenience and safety features, pasteurized egg yolks are an essential ingredient for any culinary enthusiast.
