All eggs comply with the New Zealand egg standards and grades set by the Egg Producers Federation of New Zealand Code of Practice 2002. Eggs must equal or exceed the minimum weight for each grade as listed below. This provides consistent results when it comes to recipe development.
|Egg Size||Minimum Weight Per Egg|
We have colour coded our packs by egg size to make them quick and easy to find.
For everyday use choose Farmer Brown Standard Medium, Size 6 eggs in the blue coloured packs.
Try alternating between using Farmer Brown Medium, Size 6 eggs and Farmer Brown Large Size 7's to see which you prefer.
And for those with BIG appetites choose Farmer Brown Jumbo, Size 8 eggs.
Most baking recipes are based on using Large, i.e. Size 7 eggs. The success or failure is to maintain the proper proportion of liquid to dry ingredients and to have enough whole egg, white or yolk to perform the needed function.
If you find you don't have the correct size egg in the house, then use this handy substitution chart to help you.
