Intel ISEF 2018 Team Profile – Emma Serisier – Effects of Storage Conditions and Time on Egg Quality

Emma found that over time the environmental conditions that eggs are stored under have a significant influence on their internal quality. There were identifiable interactions between the temperature and environmental factors with the egg quality. Increased storage temperature resulted in weight loss, increase in pH and visual factors such as size of air cell, runniness of albumen, form of yolk and odour. An increase in pH was observed in most eggs regardless of storage conditions.
