Egg Substitutes

4 posts in this topic

I am allergic to eggs and poultry, and want to make some cookies and cakes. Before having to go gluten-free, I was eating Dolly Madison chocolate cupcakes, which have no eggs. I am wondering if anyone knows what is used in place of the eggs?

Ener-G makes an egg replacer. It comes in a box.

I got this off of an allergy website

I hope it helps.

Substitutions

Often times, you can skip the eggs in a recipe if it only calls for one or two. All you need to do is add a couple extra tablespoons of liquid to balance the moisture content of the product.

There are several ways in which to substitute eggs in a recipe. For each egg, substitute one of the following:

As Binders

      1/2 large mashed banana

      1/4 cup apple sauce or pureed prunes

      1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water

      1 1/2 tablespoons water, 1 1/2 tablespoons oil,

      and 1 teaspoon baking powder

      Combine one packet of unflavored gelatin with one cup boiling water

      - 3 tablespoons of this mixture equal one egg

      1 tablespoon apricot puree

      1/4 cup of soft tofu

      1/4 cup soy milk

As Leavening

      2 tablespoons carbonated water and 2 teaspoons baking flour

      1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 tablespoon water, and 1 tablespoon vinegar

      (add vinegar separately at the end for rising)

      Dissolve 1 teaspoon yeast in 1/4 cup warm water

      1 heaping tablespoon of soy flour and one tablespoon water

      1 tablespoon bean flour and 1 tablespoon oil

      1 tablespoon of arrowroot powder mixed with 3 tablespoons water

      1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 3 tablespoons water

      2 tablespoons gluten flour or unbleached white flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons corn

      oil, 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, and 2 tablespoons water

For Whipping

      1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum with about 1/4 cup of water. Let stand.

        It thickens, and can be whipped like an egg white.

Thanks! I found an egg substitute at the store, but it listed eggs as the first ingredient! I hope no companies do this with gluten-free labeling! <_<

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
