Specifications

  • Product: Ostrich Egg
  • Quantity: 1
  • Weight: 4-5 lbs.
  • Package Type: Boxed

Safe Handling Instructions

  • Farm fresh eggs have what is called a cuticle, an invisible protective membrane over the shell that seals the egg from oxygen and bacteria. Grocery store eggs do not have this protective layer and thus do not last as long.
  • For the longest lasting eggs, do not wash your eggs until you are ready to eat them. To wash, rinse them carefully in warm water without soap.
  • Washed eggs last up to 1 month in the refrigerator. Unwashed eggs can last about 2 weeks on the counter and up to 3 months in the refrigerator.
  • If you decide to wash your eggs before storing them, make sure they are completely dry before storing.

THE SUPERIOR OSTRICH DIFFERENCE

Our ostriches are born and raised free-range in the USA from hatch to harvest. Our ostrich eggs are all natural with minimal processing and contain no artificial ingredients. We never use antibiotics or hormones. Our ranch practices regenerative farming, minimizing soil disturbance, utilizing rotational grazing, and prioritizing holistic animal management. 

COOKING TIPS

Ostrich Eggs, due to their size and unique qualities, offer a multitude of possibilities in the kitchen. They can be used in many of the same ways as chicken eggs, but their large volume and distinct texture lend themselves to specific applications. Due to their volume, cooking times will be longer. Gentle heat is recommended to ensure even cooking. Cracking the shell requires a hammer or a drill, as the ostrich egg shell is much harder than that of a chicken egg.

Popular Applications
  • Scrambled Eggs and Omelets
  • Quiches and Frittatas
  • Cakes and Custards
  • Homemade Pastas
  • Hard Boiling
  • Sauces and Mayonnaise

MORE ABOUT OSTRICH EGGS

When comparing the nutritional value of ostrich eggs to chicken eggs, it is important to note the substantial size difference. One ostrich egg can weigh between 3-5 lbs, equivalent to approximately 20-24 chicken eggs. Nutritional comparisons are generally made on a per gram basis or by considering the contents of a portion of an ostrich egg equivalent to one standard chicken egg.

Nutritional Value
Ostrich eggs are rich in essential nutrients, an excellent source of protein, and contain all of the essential amino acids. They also have significant amounts of vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, E, B12, iron, phosphorus, and zinc. Compared to chicken eggs, ostrich eggs have a lower cholesterol and fat levels per gram.

Size and Efficiency
One ostrich egg is roughly equivalent to 24 chicken eggs in volume, making them a very efficient food source if you're cooking for a group. This size can be beneficial for large-scale cooking or for those who prefer to use fewer eggs overall in recipes that require multiple chicken eggs.

Low Fat Content
Despite their size, ostrich eggs have relatively low fat content, making them a good option for individuals monitoring their fat intake.

Long Shelf Life
When kept in the right conditions, ostrich eggs can have a longer shelf life compared to chicken eggs. Their thick shell provides a robust barrier against bacteria, helping to keep the egg fresh for longer periods when stored properly.

Versatile Culinary Use
Although their large size may require some adjustments in cooking techniques, ostrich eggs can be used in a variety of recipes just like chicken eggs. They can be boiled, scrambled, or used in baking, offering a unique culinary experience.

Allergy-Friendly Option
Some people who are allergic to chicken eggs might find ostrich eggs to be a viable alternative. However, it's important to consult with a healthcare provider before trying ostrich eggs if you have a known allergy to chicken eggs.
