I don't think that's easily done in a home kitchen. I googled it, and I'm not coming up with anything useful. But it's an interesting question!

I saw that too, Conky Joe, but I didn't find anything on drying just the whites, did you?

Hi Cazuela . . . I think the process described in this article would work just as well for egg whites as using the whole egg. I found numerous articles when dehydrator was included in the search (e.g., How to make egg white powder using a dehydrator). I’ve never done it, and read mixed results from near failure to satisfied with result which makes me think it’s tricky. There is also some food safety issues that anyone contemplating a try at this should consider. Another read . . . (again whole egg is used but just separate yolk if wanting egg white powder).

Things made commercially using an industrial process may not be easily duplicated at home. Some website talk about cooking the eggs in a vacuum which the home cook wouldn't have available to them. I think this is one item that would be more practical to purchase the powder from the store then try to make your own.
