This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in December of 2017. While fresh eggs are always preferred, sometimes they just aren't an option. These powdered varieties make it possible to enjoy this energizing breakfast food anywhere you go, so long as you have water and a heating source. While they could be a part of your emergency supplies kit, they are also a favorite of bakers, because they stay fresh for a long time and mix into batters well.

Emergency Essentials Whole Egg Powder With a 10-year shelf life and a whopping 72 servings per tin, this is a great option for doomsday preppers and anyone else who just wants to make sure they are ready to handle an unexpected emergency should one arise. It is also nut, lactose, and soy free. beprepared.com

Legacy Premium Bulk Whole Egg Though more expensive than many other options, this is made from eggs laid by chickens in the United States, and all of the processing also happens in country, so you can feel comfortable about serving it to your family. It never requires refrigeration and lasts about one month after breaking the seal. legacyfoodstorage.com

Editor's Notes

September 10, 2019:

Powdered eggs can come in handy in a variety of situations. Not only are they are great for camping and boating, but they are also a smart item to keep in the cabinet if you do a lot of baking, since they can be easily substituted in for the real thing in most recipes and no one will be any the wiser.

While many of these powdered options can taste very close to fresh eggs when scrambled, such as Hoosier Hill Farm Whole, Arrowhead Bay Whole Crystals, and Augason Farms, there is one particular product that is raved about on many camping and cruising forums for its authentic flavor and texture — Nutriom OvaEasy. Add to that the fact that it comes in handy 4.5-ounce packages, and it is a no-brainer that it claimed our top spot.

While on the topic of sailing, we'd like to take a minute to put the spotlight on Hoosier Hill Farm Whole and Arrowhead Bay Whole Crystals, which come in large plastic jars that are easy to reseal, so you won't have to worry about moisture getting into your eggs and causing them to go bad.

Though Mountain House Scrambled Eggs with Bacon is actually a freeze-dried product rather than a powdered one, it carries nearly all of the same benefits of the powdered varieties, but with the added bonus of being fully cooked, so all you have to do is add boiling water to it and it's ready to eat. Plus, we thought many users would find the addition of bacon makes it an appealing option.

For those with sensitivities, we have included Judee's Gluten-Free. Not only is it safe for people with celiac disease, but it is also packaged in a nut-free facility.
