How to Identify Fake Eggs
Though people are been fooled into buying fake eggs, yet there are few ways to differentiate and identify fake eggs. Always buy eggs from trusted grocer, from whom you buy eggs often. Never buy eggs from unknown sources. While buying eggs, one can be careful and alert. Few ways to identify fake eggs are mentioned below -
1. The outer shell of fake eggs are pretty much shinier as compared to original eggs.
2. The shape of a fake egg is something to be noted for. A regular egg is never round, a bit elliptical but a fake egg is rather round and big in shape.
3. If you hold the fake egg in you hand and shake it, you would rather hear sloshing noise inside, as if flow of water.
4. Once you have eggs in your kitchen, understand that a real egg is tougher to crack and the sound of breaking is crisp rather than fake eggs. The fake eggs break easily as compared to real eggs. Though spoiled eggs do crack easily, but still such an egg spoiled or fake should be thrown immediately.
5. If an egg is fake, once you break it you would find a yellow and white liquid mixed as if the egg is spoiled unlike a real egg where you would find egg white and egg yolk separate yet intact. Also in fake eggs, even after breaking you find egg white and egg yolk separate, within a matter of seconds, both would mix together on their own which never happens in real eggs.
6. Real eggs smell like raw meat and of you have little yellow on your hand than the eggy smell would stay for some time. But with fake eggs that part is really missing as you just cannot smell them.
7. When you half fry a fake egg, the yolk spreads on the egg white without being touched which never happens with real eggs.
8. The inner membrane of an real egg is thin and slimy, whereas the inner membrane of fake egg is dry and feels like a paper.
9. When you put the outer shell of a fake egg on fire, the shell burns quickly similar to that of a plastic. However if you try the same with real egg shell, the shell takes time to burn.
10. Last but not least, when real eggs are left open on the kitchen counter, flies are attracte to them. The same can't be said about fake eggs.
