Fresh hens' eggs were washed in warm water and egg-washing powder for 5 min and dried. The yolks were then separated, churned for 2 min, filtered and pasteurized at 64 degree C for 3 min. 0.04% pepsin (1:3000) was added immediately after cooling to 37 degree C and the mixture stirred. The mixture was put into carefully sealed glass containers and frozen at -10 degree C for 30 days. The containers were then thawed at 4 degree C overnight and at 50 degree C for 2 h next morning. Yolk containing no enzyme was found to be gelled and did not thaw to normal consistency, whilst treated yolk compared favourably with fresh yolks. Earlier work is briefly reviewed.
