Product Review: Vegan Egg

When I was shopping at Whole Foods last week, I was delightfully surprised to find something great! You might be interested in this because some of you have allergies to egg, are vegan, or vegetarian.It would also be helpfulfor those who have to cut down on cholesterol. The primary ingredient comes from algae. It's only 40 calories per "egg", but unfortunately only 1 gram of protein. If you miss eggs, though, this is worth a try.

I am allergic to egg, so I haven't had scrambled eggs or an omlette for a very long time. I've had to use not so great substitutes when I bake like egg replacer or flax gel, so everything from bread to brownies is very dense. I made bricks! Hopefully, this will bake better.

There are pluses and minuses to this product. The plus: Vegan egg tastes close enough to eggs when scrambled. I've learned to never expect a substitute to taste exactly like the real thing. They were light and fluffy, but the texture was a bit odd. It took longer scrambling in the pan than a regular egg, but only a couple of minutes more. I look forward to testing it out in my next bread recipe. The negative: The price! it was $6.99 per "dozen" (one box) at Whole Foods in the Detroit metro area. Yikes! But it is a shelf-stable powder, so they won't go bad like real eggs. If you are game to try something new, this is worth it. I give it a thumbs up!
