Recently my husband, Dean, did a food sensitivity test and was surprised to learn he is highly sensitive to eggs. We tried to figure out what had been causing his terrible tummy aches, and did numerous eliminations to his diet. We thought it was lactose, perhaps gluten, maybe an ulcer. After having some tests done the doctors weren’t able to figure it out, so I ordered the food sensitivity test. Once we got the results back I started reading food labels, not for lactose or gluten, but this time for eggs.
We removed eggs completely from his diet, and his tummy started feeling better. However, removing eggs also left several recipes he could no longer eat. This lead me back to doing research about egg substitutes.
For scrambled eggs we use JUST Egg, their motto is “made from plants, not chickens”. They’re pretty good, and luckily our local grocery carries them. I can also use them in numerous dishes, but at $5 US for 12 ounces that equals eight servings, I wanted to find something a bit more economical for recipes.
Enter The Neat Egg. One package is around $3.50 US and is equivalent to eighteen eggs. That is great a savings, and they are a perfect alternative to using eggs as a binder in recipes. I think next time I will get Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer just to do more of a comparison, because I love their products.
