Freshness of coloured hard-boiled hens eggs during storage
Before Easter, supermarkets offer coloured hard-boiled eggs often unchilled.
The market offers a guaranteed shelf life of up to 28 days but with the advice
to "keep eggs refrigerated". In contrast to fresh eggs, no EU - or national
directives exist for hard-boiled eggs. Nevertheless, eggs should always show
signs of freshness; but there is little known about how long and in which
conditions hard-boiled eggs can be stored.
