- Q How long can I store eggs?
Raw shell eggs will keep in the refrigerator without significant quality loss for up to three weeks after the “Best Before” date.
Eggs will gradually lose quality and some of their functional properties, such as the ability to thicken sauces and make baked goods rise. The rate at which quality is lost depends on many things including handling and storage practices, and temperatures.
Hard-cooked eggs, in the shell or peeled, should be eaten within one week after cooking. Hard-cooked yolks should be used within five days.
Separated egg whites and yolks should be refrigerated immediately in tightly covered containers and used within two to four days. To stop yolks from drying up, cover them with a little cold water and pour the water off before using.
