You can use the powdered eggs to make scrambled egg meals quite easily without having to worry about finding a packaged egg batter.

Eggs can be fatal. In countries with high-density poultry farming they are very often contaminated with salmonella, and if the eggs are "natural" and haven't been washed with a bleach or other agent, they often have salmonella and simple contact with them spreads it. Folks don't realize how big a problem food poisoning still is, even in the "clean" West, and that it does hospitalize and kill in big numbers every year.

I don't avoid eggs, but eggs, melons (often fertilized with fresh manure or lying among it), poultry, things like that I make sure to clean thoroughly, and to clean any surfaces they've contacted.

Do you dip them in a bleach solution along with veggies and fruits before storing on a boat?

Under the right circumstances almost anything can be fatal.

The actual risk from eggs is very low. FDA reports 30 deaths in the US, annually. Considering how many eggs are eaten, this seems like a very minimal risk. CDC reports 2,300 fatalities annually that are related to food poisoning over all. That means Salmonella accounts for around 1.1% of food born fatalities. And only some of these are egg related.

Of particular consideration in the conversation here is that virtually ALL salmonella poisonings are found in conjunction with improper cooking techniques.

Cook your eggs; don't eat them raw. Worry more about raw fruit and veggies that need to be washed very carefully to avoid e.coli.

Isn't that forgetting something like 200,000 hospitalizations form food poisoning as well? Offshore, it isn't as easy to stay in bed for a day or two.

No, it is responding to your point that eggs can be fatal.

Speakiing of eggs going off, my mother taught me when I was learning to cook that eggs should always broken one at a time into a small container, then added to whatever I was cooking. One stinker can ruin a pan of eggs or a bowl of cake mix. I rarely find blood in eggs in advanced countries but when you do find a spot of blood it is pretty unappetizing. If there is one, use a portion of the broken shell to fish it out of the egg you have broken into that "preview" container.

Blood in the egg yolk is an indication that the egg is fertilized. Keeping such eggs in an un-refrigerated environment can/will produce an embryo and chick. Candleing an egg can help identify whether it is fertilized or not.

Dipping in Islinglass is the traditional way but I've never tried it.
