What is egg substitue?
Egg substitue is a liquid sold in cartons, that is usually a blend of egg whites, food starch, corn oil, skim-milk powder, tofu, artificial coloring and a plethora of additives. It contains no cholesterol but each serving is almost as high in sodium as a real egg.
Cooking with Egg Substitutes Usually the measurements are on the carton that the egg substitute comes in (just like artificial sweeteners do.)
