August 21/Auburn, Ala./American Egg Board -- National Egg Products School is an annual three-day hands-on school, an introduction to egg products to be held at Auburn University on October 15-17, 2012. This school is a perfect opportunity to learn about the formation of the egg through packaging of the final product. In addition, the course covers egg microbiology and composition, handling, storage and the processes for producing egg products.

There is significant time spent on functionality, the marketing of egg products, and the latest research on egg nutrition. American Egg Board’s Research Chef Walter Zuromski will present a track based on the culinary aspects of egg products with an emphasis on the best product for specific operational needs with a focus on desired functionality and sensory needs.
