The title of this space is:
What is Egg Substitute?
Egg substitute is listed in many low-fat or low-cholesterol recipes as an alternative to whole eggs. But what exactly is egg substitute, and does it contain real eggs?
There is not one direct answer to this question. Just lots of links to everything BUT what is egg substitute!
Doesn’t anyone know??
Here is what Egg substitute is:
A blend of egg whites, strarch, corn oil, skim milk powder, tofu, food coloring and additives sold in a carton. They contain no cholesterol and can be used for scrambling and baking in place of whole eggs. Only some egg substitutes contain no egg products, and could therefore be considered vegan (you must read the label).
