On the basis of the type, it is segmented into egg yolk powder, egg albumen
powder, whole egg powder, and others.
Like coconut water, albumen
also contains minerals and low fat and sugars, and can be used as an ingredient in the industry of fruit drinks.
Yolk index [(yolk height/yolk diameter) x 100], albumen

length and albumen
width) x 100] and Haugh units [[100 x log (H+7.57-1.7W0.37)] where H is albumen
height and W is egg weight] were calculated by using the values of albumen
width and yolk diameter (Card and Nesheim, 1972).
Egg weight and yolks share were increased, while egg shape index, albume n share, albumen
height and Haugh unit were decreased with hen's age.
where h is height of albumen
and w is egg weight (Eisen et al.

The scientists found that for the uncoated eggs, as storage time increased, albumen
pH and weight loss increased, but yolk index, albumen
index and Haugh unit values decreased.
Other markers relating to nutritional status including patients' plasma albumen
were unchanged with treatment.
And the parameters evaluated for the eggs were: egg weight (g); weight (g) and percentage participation (%) of shell, yolk, albumen
, specific gravity (g [cm.sup.-3]).
A poultry egg consists of a shell, albumen
, and yolk.
