State Law as It Relates to Edible White Spheroids With a Yellow Center

What constitutes an “egg product” in California?

Food and Agriculture Code Section 27512 says simply that “egg products means egg meats.”

What then are “egg meats?”

The preceding Section 27511 defines egg meats as the “white, yolk or any part of eggs, in liquid, frozen, dried or any other form, used, intended or held for

use in the preparation of — or to be a part of or mixed with — food or food products, for human consumption.”

But it’s not until Section 27513 that “eggs” are defined.

According to the State of California, eggs, at least in this particular section of law, are eggs.

The section says eggs are “eggs in the shell from chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese or any other species of fowl.”
