Eggology Introduces New Line Of All-Natural Hardboiled Eggs

Convenient, Organic, Cage-Free, & Original (2-Packs) All Certified Humane

CANOGA PARK, CA. – Eggology, the leader in the all-natural egg white industry, today cracks open a brand new line of all-natural, Certified Humane Hardboiled Eggs, it was announced by company founder Brad Halpern.

Representing the ideal healthy snack, the new line is offered in three convenient 2-pack variations: Certified Organic, Cage-Free and Original. Each package features peeled, ready-to-enjoy hardboiled eggs in a vacuum pack along with packets of salt and pepper. All three variations are low in calories, all-natural, Certified Humane, fresh, Kosher, and completely free of preservatives, GMOs and trans fats.

Representing another eggstreme makeover of traditional eggs from Eggology, the new Hardboiled Eggs product line has a suggested retail price ranging from $.99 to $1.30 (depending on the 2-pack variation being purchased). Currently available at Organic To Go, Eggology’s Hardboiled Eggs will also be offered at Whole Foods Markets and numerous other fine food stores and mainstream supermarkets nationwide beginning mid March.

“While our focus as a company will always be on egg whites, consumers have been asking us for years to create an all-natural hardboiled egg line, and we thought the time was perfect to introduce it to the marketplace,” says Brad Halpern, Founder and CEO of Eggology. “I am confident that our Hardboiled Eggs will not only offer people a convenient way to get the daily protein they need, but a level of quality, taste, and nutritional value they won’t find in any other comparable product being sold today. This is the coolest thing to throw in a lunch box”

The launch of the new Hardboiled Eggs line comes on the heels of another significant development at Eggology, as the company just this month became Certified Humane.

Eggology Egg White Recipe of the Day

In our neck of the woods ... okay, maybe just in our household ... the sweet potato is often overlooked. We buy red potatoes and brown potatoes (and sometimes no potatoes - depending on which way our obsession with carbs is going) but rarely do we buy a sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are a great source of vitamins (B6 and C), beta carotene and dietary fiber. In fact, their nutritional value packs way more of a punch then the common potato!

Now are you wondering how to incorporate it into your meal? Well, here's a suggestion:

Marvelous Maple Sweet Potato Casserole
Servings: 8

Notes: Garnish with oregano, if desired.

1/3 cup yellow cornmeal
1 1/2 cups skim milk 2 tablespoons margarine
1 1/4 pounds sweet potato, cooked, and mashed
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 ounces Eggology fresh egg white, lightly beaten
vegetable cooking spray

Place the cornmeal in a medium saucepan. Gradually add milk, stirring with a wire whisk until blended. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook, uncovered, 2 minutes, stirring constantly with a wire whisk. Remove from heat; stir in margarine. Set aside.

Combine sweet potato and next 6 ingredients (sweet potato through egg whites) in a large bowl; stir until well-blended. Gradually add cornmeal mixture, stirring constantly. Pour sweet potato mixture into a 1-1/2-quart casserole coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Serving size: 1/2 cup

Eggology Becomes First Egg Products Brand “Certified Humane” By Animal Welfare Auditor, Humane Farm Animal Care

CANOGA PARK, CA. – Eggology, the leader in the all-natural egg whites industry, has become the only liquid egg brand to be “Certified Humane” by Virginia-based animal welfare auditing organization, Humane Farm Animal Care. It was announced today by company founder Brad Halpern.

The first company to offer 100% organic and cage-free egg whites, Eggology has maintained a close association with The Humane Society since being founded in the mid-90’s.

Receiving the prestigious “Certified Humane” designation affirms that Eggology meets the Humane Farm Animal Care’s stringent Animal Care Standard. These include providing animals a nutritious diet without antibiotics or hormones, as well as raising them with shelters, resting areas, sufficient space and the ability to engage in natural behaviors (please find below additional information about the non-cruelty standards Eggology maintains).

“Certified Humane” hens have over 3 times the space that hens have in battery cage factory farms. The Certified Humane logo shown above right will be featured immediately on the website and will begin appearing on the company’s line of products over the weeks ahead.

Eggology has also become a staunch supporter of Californians for Humane Farms’ efforts to pass a precedent-setting California ballot in November eliminating chicken cages in the state.

Added Eggology founder Brad Halpern, “We are truly honored to receive this prestigious certification since the welfare of chickens and all animals has always been of tremendous importance to me personally and to Eggology corporately. I look forward to working closely with the great people at Californians for Humane Farms on this important November ballot and to doing everything humanly – and humanely – possible to eliminate the caging of chickens in California.”

  • No cages - hens have unlimited access to feed, water, and dirt for bathing
  • Hens are fed a 100% certified organic diet comprised mainly of organic corn, organic alfalfa, organic soy, organic salt & limestone
  • Hens that become injured for any reason receive immediate attention from an onsite poultry specialist to determine if the injury requires isolation for healing, or that the severity of injury will incur undo suffering in which case the hen is humanely euthanized
  • Hens who die are cremated on the ranch to prevent any potential for disease
  • Hens are not de-beaked

Eggology Egg White Recipe of the Day

Frittata. Say that ten times! We never really knew the difference between a frittata and a quiche but upon our research (thank you Wikipedia) have found that one is French with a crust (quiche) and one is Italian with no crust (frittata, frittata!). Both are what we consider egg pies and are usually served for breakfast, lunch or brunch. What we love about the frittata is that it is just as scrumptious as a quiche - but with no crust - thus eliminating lots of calories and fat.

Another great way to make it a more healthy meal is to substitute the eggs in the recipe for Eggology egg whites. We happen to have quite a selection of frittata recipes online, but this is one of our all time faves. Enjoy!

America's Heartland Frittata

Serving size: 2
Notes: Serve with a salad of baby greens for an ideal dinner.

1 cup diced peeled baking potato
1/2 (2 ounces) shredded fat-free cheddar cheese, divided
6 ounces Eggology fresh egg whites, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons reduced-calorie margarine
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1/2 cup diced lean Canadian bacon
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream

Place potato in a small saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes or until tender; drain.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Combine 1/4 cup cheese, egg whites; stir well. Set aside. Melt margarine in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add potato, onion, bell pepper, bacon, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in egg mixture; spread evenly in bottom of skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 5 minutes or until almost set.

Wrap handle of skillet with foil; place skillet in oven, and bake at 450 degrees for 5 minutes or until set. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese; bake an additional minute or until cheese melts. Top each serving with sour cream.

Eggstra! Valerie Waters' Eggcellent Egg White Recipe

Getting in shape - and staying in shape - is not just about fitness. It's about nutrition as well. Even Valerie Waters, "Hollywood's Hot Trainer" proclaimed by US Magazine, implements food rules - one of them is to learn to cook five or six things that can be made in less time than it takes a pizza delivery to arrive.

And one of her favorite recipes is made with Eggology Egg Whites. Her eggcellent recipe is below (try this for dinner too!):

Egg white spinach, mushroom, onion and feta cheese scramble (Valerie's favorite breakfast)


1/3 cup Eggology liquid egg whites
Small handful of chopped mushrooms
1-2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 big handfuls of spinach
1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese


Spray a non-stick pan with Pam cooking spray and heat on medium high.

Add mushrooms and onions and stir until browned. Add 2 giant handfuls of spinach (don’t worry it will cook down). Toss spinach until wilted.

Reduce heat to medium and add in egg whites and continue to stir until eggs begin to set.

Add feta cheese and continue to stir for about 30 more seconds and serve.

Eggology Interview with Personal Trainer Valerie Waters

Valerie Waters is one of Hollywood Hottest trainers, someone we really admire (a total health enthusiast and role model) and a lover of Eggology Egg whites! Valerie was kind enough to take time out of her busy training schedule to answer some questions for our readers....enjoy!

Q. How did you get into personal training?
I ran track in high school. One day the coach took us into the weight room and taught us how to lift weights. I was fourteen years old and remember that day like it was yesterday. From then on I was obsessed with working out and began a life long love affair with weight training. Eventually I got a job at a gym selling memberships which I was never very good at. Management convinced me to try training. The industry was just emerging at this time and this gym was one of the fist to actively promote it. Within a month of starting, I was booked solid eight hours a day and loved it! I knew then that I had found my calling. It is nearly 20 years later and I still love it!

Q. How did you discover Eggology products?
I originally saw it in the supplement section at Gold’s Gym. I bought it on the spot and have not turned back since. It is a well known fact that egg whites pack a nutritional punch. Now with Eggology, I can be assured of getting a good source of protein and because of the convenience I can save time in the kitchen.

Q. In what ways do you recommend Eggology to your clients?
Many of my clients don’t cook either because they think they don’t have time or they don’t know how. Scrambled egg whites using Eggology is one of the first things I teach because of the simplicity and the fact that I want my clients eating breakfast. Besides the fact that egg whites are a great source of protein, they are fast and easy.

Q. What is your philosophy on health and fitness?
I believe that exercise is a means to an end. You workout out in the gym (or home gym) because it is a very efficient way to build strength and endurance, but I want you to take that new level of fitness and get out and have some fun. For me that is surfing or hiking with friends. For you it may be something else. The bottom line: workout to look better but don’t make that your only goal. There is so much more available to you when you adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Q. Do you have any athletic role models?
Lance Armstrong. I don’t even ride a bike but I am simply in awe of what this guy has accomplished athletically, personally and professionally.

Laird Hamilton. Here again, I can’t do any of the things Laird can do but I am inspired by his 100% commitment to living life to the fullest extent of his being. He helped bring new meaning to extreme surfing and he pioneered many sport innovations.

To me, these two men represent energy personified.

Q. What inspires you to stay so healthy and fit?
My job and my clients certainly, but more important is the quality of my life. I simply cannot imagine my life without exercise. It affects everything; my energy, my mood, my creativity, my skin, my body. I am truly grateful for my body even with its imperfections and minor aches and pains.

Q. If there is ONE piece of health advice you can give our readers, what would it be?
There is no magic pill. Being fit requires commitment and effort but please recognize there is joy in this. Being fit is not a two week diet or a new piece of exercise equipment (although these things may kick it off) it is making small but meaningful choices each day. Choosing to get up an hour earlier to workout instead of staying in bed, bringing a healthy lunch with you to work instead of going out for fast food, choosing water over soda, or choosing grilled chicken over chicken enchiladas. Each action builds on the other until you are living your life as a healthy fit person. At this point, there is a lot less struggle because these actions have become habits. There is no argument about whether to stay in bed or not, if it is workout day, you just put your feet on the floor. You don’t even consider skipping breakfast, you just have your go to foods for quick and easy breakfasts such as a yogurt or Eggology’s microwaveable single serving egg whites.

Q. Tell us about the Valslide! How you got the vision for this, etc.
The Valslide is without a doubt the most effective and most portable fitness product on the market. The Valslide will help you sculpt your body fast and effectively, no matter where you train. My clients (and I) are always traveling, whether it is for a movie shoot or for vacation. Often times people fall off track with their fitness program while they are away simply because they don’t have access to equipment. Now that my clients have the Valslide, they can get in a workout wherever they are. They just throw it in their purse or suitcase and it’s all they need to get in a great workout.

I was inspired to create the Valslide after being frustrated that my slide board took up so much room and I could not easily bring it with me to a client’s house. I had learned the value of the slide board exercises when I trained at a facility catering to professional athletes. One day, I was inspired to make something portable that could simulate slide board exercises and the Valslide was born! Check it out at

Valerie - THANK YOU so much for inspiring us, it was so much fun to interview you! Health is wealth, you embody that.
Stay tuned, we hope to post some of Valerie's great recipes on the blog too!!!

Do you find that it's hard to feed your family leftovers? Who wants to eat the same meal the next night?

Eggology egg white face mask

Make an egg white mask to revive tired and dull skin. The proteins help to heal and restore original skin moisture. It's the protein in the egg white (which are the same proteins that make up the human body) that seals in moisture in your face. It's gentle for any skin type.

Eggology is 100% pure and contains no bacteria.

Pour 1/4 cup of Eggology into in to a bowl. Apply egg whites to skin using a powder brush or soft cloth.

Allow 5 minutes, then rinse off.
