So, what is pasteurized egg yolk?

Pasteurized egg yolk refers to egg yolks that have been heated to a specific temperature for a specific time to kill harmful bacteria while retaining their natural flavor and nutritional value. Pasteurized egg yolk is a common ingredient in various dishes, such as sauces, custards, mayonnaise, and ice cream. It is particularly useful for recipes that call for raw or lightly cooked egg yolks, reducing the risk of food-borne illness. Pasteurized egg yolk comes in a convenient liquid form that can be easily incorporated into recipes, providing a rich, creamy texture and a bright yellow color.
