    In a pourable tupaware tub with an air tight seal about 5 days

    I find they go a little funny after that

    I would say 5 - 7 for freshest; and no longer than 10 days. Only because if your seperating yourself...unpasteurized. Otherwise; the carton kind go further.

    ~5 days sounds about right for freshness though that'd be pushing it for me, i probably wouldn't leave them around for more than 3 days. I prefer the carton whites if I'm not going to use immediately.

    one time I bought liquid egg whites from international egg whites ( I think ). Each container contains 14 doz egg whites. Dont remember the price.

    Just an option.....

    this could be a rediculous idea, but can u freeze egg whites? i dont see why not. crack all ur eggs for the week and then leave them in the firdge over night to defrost the night before u need each serving? i just crack mine in the morning anyway.

    you only need to put the carton in the fridge when you open it otherwise they can be stored in a cool, dark, cupboard.

    No ur not... Dont worry


    As far as cracking eggs i split 30 at a time to last about 4 days.

    I have done 60 once but at the end i was left with what looked like cum in a tupaware tub LOL

    Not sure if it was just the little bits of actuall white in the egg whites falling to the bottom maybe

    HAHA kind if put me off

    Nice base...

    The company said they arrive frozen and once defrosted they only last 1 week in the fridge, think they will last longer than that, o well, I'm just gonna crack my eggs

    Myprotein egg whites in cartons don't need refridgerating. Cool dark place is fine for them.

    Alternatively, just seperate twice a week. Maybe Sunday and Thursday nights then you should be quite safe.
