I saw this posted on the Kids with Food Allergies Foundation Facebook Site and was fascinated! It provides a vegan substitute for egg YOLK, enabling those with allergies to create quiches, sauces, scrambled "egg"... Here's what the manufacturers say about it:-
"A brand new incredible, edible egg-free product has just hit the market, making vegan eating even easier and tastier than ever before. The Vegg is a versatile egg yolk replacer that can be used (instead of egg yolks) in a wide range of recipes, and you can even use it straight as a liquid “yolk” for dipping!
The Vegg is all-vegan, which is great news for the more than 250 million egg-laying hens in the US, most of whom spend their lives intensively confined inside barren wire cages. And since it’s made using 100% plant-based ingredients -- fortified nutritional yeast (dry yeast, niacin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin, thiamin hydrochloride, folic acid, B12), sodium alginate, black sea salt, beta carotene -- it’s also 100% cholesterol-free, which makes it heart-healthy, too."
The VEGG can be purchased online from Veggie Stuff and each packet (£5.50) makes a LITRE of egg. Would love to hear reports of readers who have tried it!
