Why are there eggs sitting out in the open and not in a refrigerated case?

Are they trying to give the population health problems? Unrefrigerated dairy products can make you very sick and even kill you if they have salmonella. Do the Japanese not care about those risks? I learned all about that stuff when I worked in a grocery store in high school, I would say that I'm an expert on cold food and this display case would never fly where I am.

Isn't this just an American and Australian thing? Eggs don't need to be refrigerated.

They're in the dairy department so they are a dairy product. Milk, eggs, and cheese are all dairy products.
>>
>>100210940
You're joking, right?

Refrigerating eggs is a thing that only America and Canada do to my knowledge.

It's not that those countries are being retarded or anything; law requires that the eggs have to be washed in such a way that WOULD make it dangerous to not refrigerate them. Other countries don't have that law so they don't have to keep their eggs refrigerated.

They're not even technically a fruit. The people who perpetuate that myth are fucking dumb shits who try to look smart.

It's a common misconception that eggs need to be refrigerated. My family used to refrigerate our eggs. Then my grandmother got all the grandkids chicks for Easter one year and no one wanted them so my family took them all. We were filling our fridge with eggs until one day while looking on chicken forums I learned that this is unnecessary. Having chickens was neat. 6 chickens provided a family of 5 with more eggs than we knew what to do with. </blog>

Dairy means milk products, dumbass. An item's location in a grocery store doesn't define what it's made of.

>>100211473
Eggs go bad quicker if you don't refrigerate them. It isn't a problem if you finish them all in a month but most people keep eggs longer than that.
>>
>>100211446
It is a berry then, better? And if you say yes then you must think other berries aren't fruit eithet.
Tomatoes fall under the fruit category and berry subcategory

>>100211250
So I guess it's just the US and Canada.

I know a number of Asian and Mexican markets that get their eggs locally that haven't been processedm so they don't need to be refrigerated. Most markets are usually kept below 20C though, so it doesn't matter whether they're refrigerated or not.
>>
Canadian here, though I don't eat eggs, the eggs in my house are kept in the fridge. I see nothing wrong with them not being fridges though.
>>
>>100211736
If you eat a lot of eggs it isn't a problem, it's really only necessary to put them in refrigeration if you plan on keeping them for multiple months.
>>
>>100211473

>It's a common misconception that eggs need to be refrigerated.

US regulations require that eggs be power wash, which removes the protective coating, and makes it more porous, which means they're more open to contamination. Keeping it refrigerated slows down the amount of bacteria multiplying.
>>
>>100211480
>An item's location in a grocery store doesn't define what it's made of
It defines where it goes and what it's classified as by most major retailers. So when OP said "Unrefrigerated dairy products" he was still right.

Eggs are part of the meat food group, even though they are technically pre-meat. People get confused because I don't know - milk, cheese, butter, and eggs all come from farms? There are also lacto ovo vegetarians, who eat eggs and dairy in addition to their regular slate of weeds and dirt.

In places like the U.S. they wash the egg shells, which while cleaning them also erodes the cuticle. That's why America has to store their eggs next to the ketchup, otherwise they end up full of Sal Monella, and nobody wants a greasy dago dripping olive oil all over their Eggs Florentine.

Tip : Some people put their bread in the refrigerator but this actually causes your bread to become stale and mold quicker.
For softer and longer lasting bread keep your loafs in the pantry.

A true dairy product is made by the mammary glads of a mammal. Eggs do not fit this definition, however they are an animal byproduct, which is why they are are lumped into the same group as dairy products.

Eggs are classified in the meat group because of their protein content. So, nutritionally speaking, semen is also in the meat group and can be classified as pre-meat thusly, although physiologically not so much.

Eggs can actually stay up to 6 months without a refrigerator without going bad.

The egg isn't the baby unless it has been fertilised by the sperm
>>
>>100210720
Anon who deals with farmers here.
Eggs DO NOT need to be refrigerated IF they are fresh. If you cool it down, it needs to be kept cool. If you leave it room temp, it can stay room temp.
>>
>>100212528
Semen is considered a biological hazard already, so it goes into that group.
If stores had an area where excrement was sold that is where you would find semen if they had it in stock and your waifu didn't buy them out before it hit the shelves.

I keep my hard boiled eggs shoved snuggly up my ass anon. They don't need to be refrigerated to be good

The egg is more of the baby than the sperm is.
That's like saying all plants come from cow shit. Actual plant seeds more like little tiny plant eggs.

I suggest you read what you've wrote in the first post.

This. So anons reading this thread, make sure you continue to store your eggs however your egg source did.

>>100212702
Do eggs hold more genetic data than sperm? Been ages since I have studied human biology and if I recall which ever holds more data is considered more like a baby, again could be completely wrong because it has been years

Nope. My woolies has them sitting on the shelf in the cereal isle.
I also never refrigerate my eggs at home, always in the pantry.

>>100212841
Not even the person you replied to originally, I am from Australia and have been to many grocery stores and some havethem refrigerated and some don't, all of Australia doesn't do either one exclusively.

In homes though, most people keep them in their fridge
>>
>>100212444

No you retard. Keeping it in the refrigerator prevents and slows down the growth of mold and other bacteria. That's what a refrigerator is for. It becomes stale faster, but it doesn't grow mold as fast. That's the whole reason why people keep bread in their fridges in the first place.

> crystallized yeast attracts water

It PUSHES the water out when it crystallizes, and that's what makes it dry and hard, you dumb fuck. If it attracted water then your bread would be moist, instead of stale. Learn to bread. Watch some Yakitate Japan or something. Educate yourself.
>>
>>100213043
Since you clearly understand what is being said I can just contradict you by saying your claims are wrong.

>salmonella
Japan isn't South America.
>>
>>100213043
Actually anon, he is right, at least the part about putting bread in the fridge increases chance of mold growing. You increase chance of condensation happening when you put bread from outside temps into the fridge and more water is ideal for mold to grow

Putting bread in a bread box is the best option.
>>
>>100212702
>That's like saying all plants come from cow shit.
Not a very good comparison, semen still has genetic information. On the other hand I can't remember enough plant biology to point out the correct parallels.
>>
>>100213032
My woolies and coles, hell even the foodworks down the road from me has them just sitting there on the normal shelfs. I tend to keep them in the fridge when i get them home though.
>>
>>100212865
>Do eggs hold more genetic data than sperm?

Each contain a half of the full chromosomal complement i.e. 23 chromosomes (as opposed to 23 pairs of chromosome) but the egg wins out because 1) the Y chormosome contains more genes than the X and 2)eggs have mitochrondiral DNA factored in as well.

In the UK eggs are kept out in store shelves but at home a lot of people refrigerate them anyway.

Except that doesn't matter because it's a fucking fridge, and you're keeping it at a cooler temperature.
>>
>>100213266
Thought so. Either way, the egg and sperm shouldn't be considered more of a baby then the other one because you need both for it

I was thinking that exact same thing.

>>100213419
I remember when I first moved to England to study abroad wandering the stores refrigerated aisles for about forty-five minutes looking for eggs. Wandered down an aisle by accident and found them. Mentioned to the stock man that I had never seen that before and that they are in coolers back in the states and he looked at me like I had said Margaret Thatcher was a good Prime Minister. Still, kept the eggs in the fridge after buying just to extend shelf life.
>>
>>100213566

>Except it does, fridges are shit tier at keeping bread fresh

Did I fucking say anything about the fridge being the best place to keep your bread? No, you idiot.
>>
>>100213566
>Bread boxes are the best and every house should have one
Is it just me, or have they become pretty uncommon?
>>
>>100213657
Yeah, mostly because not everybody has the space for it. That and for some reason everyone seems to associate them as a "rich people" item.
>>
>>100213657
Nah, they aren't widely used anymore becausw bread is dirt cheap now and is eaten quite a lot as well now days so storage of it isn't really required much

Even if they sit fine for a few weeks, you can increase their shelf life by keeping them cool

Wouldn't this mean the sperm has more genetic information since it has the Y chromosome? Therefore your first point would be arguing that the sperm would win out.
