Lansing, IL (PRWEB) December 20, 2013
Whether it’s a party for many or a small gathering with family and friends, food safety should be at the top of the entertaining “to-do” list; many holiday favorites have the potential to make a party memorable for the wrong reasons
Whether it’s eggnog, the classic holiday beverage, an Eggs Benedict brunch, or perhaps a bite of raw sugar cookie dough, these seasonal staples have one ingredient in common – raw or undercooked eggs. If these classics have not been on the menu due to possible food safety issues, this is the year to add them back into holiday menu plans.
Now available in supermarkets nationwide, in-shell pasteurized eggs provide peace of mind when preparing dishes with raw or undercooked eggs. According to Greg West, president of National Pasteurized Eggs, Inc., maker of Davidson’s Safest Choice™ pasteurized eggs, “By using a patented all-natural water bath pasteurization process, salmonella is destroyed without altering the look, cooking characteristics, taste or nutritional gold standard of an ordinary egg. Our safe pasteurized eggs have joined other pasteurized daily staples such as milk, cheese and juice in making safe food an everyday priority.”
Safest Choice eggs are easily identified. Every egg is stamped with a red circle “P,” assurance that it is a pasteurized egg, to be prepared in any way – raw, undercooked, scrambled, poached or fried – not only for the holidays but for every day.
“Our mission is simple,” West says. “Pasteurized = peace of mind™; we eliminate the risk of salmonella. In the past 10 years our safe, pasteurized eggs have grown from limited availability to fulfilling the food safety needs of consumers, chefs and foodservice institutions nationwide.” West emphasizes the importance of also following current food safety recommendations: clean; separate; cook; and chill.
