Chemical composition, microbiological quality and organoleptic properties of whole hens' egg powder prepared by the method of Iyengar et al., [see FSTA (1970) 2 4Q48] were determined. Range and mean of values for composition were: moisture, 1.0-1.9 and 1.41%; total ash, 3.31-3.65 and 3.56%; acid-insoluble ash, 0.02-0.10 and 0.06%; lipids, 37.5-41.1 and 40.04%; total N, 7.51-8.13 and 7.85%; soluble N, 6.77-7.61 and 7.00%; protein (N x 6.25) 50.17-54.3 and 52.47%; P, 701-800 and 768 mg%; Ca, 199-284 and 220 mg%; Fe, 13.55-26.7 and 17.76 mug%; Cu 3.4-6.3 and 4.86 mug%; and Sn, 13.6-25.2 and 19.35 mug%. Corresponding results for solubility in 10% KCl were: 86.82-96.96 and 90.12%. Ranges of counts/ml of total bacteria and coliforms respectively were; 1.4-7100 x 10-6 and 0.02-90 x 10-6 in raw liquid egg; 1.0-10.5 x 10-2 and 0-170 in pasteurized liquid egg; and 2-50 x 10-3 and 0 in egg powder. Organoleptic properties of omelettes and scrambled eggs prepared with the egg powder were acceptable. Standards for egg powder, based on these results, are suggested.
