Can anyone tell me if Egg Beaters or any liquid egg products are gluten free? Would it be better to order an omelet made with Egg Beaters rather than a restaurant egg product?

Eggbeaters (and all their flavors) are gluten-free - I called a couple months ago after my MIL cooked some in one of my skillets.

I personally prefer Eggology's egg white product, as it's _just_ egg whites. No added anything. For some purposes, like meringues and other things that need egg whites beat until frothy, the additives in Egg Beaters mean that product won't work. I also just don't really like the texture of Egg Beaters.

As far as something like egg beaters or allwhites.. why they do not whip up... it isn't necessarily about what is added to them, it is about what is done to them. Pasteurized egg whites do not whip as well cuz the mild heating during the process partially denatures (or cooks) the protein. The proteins have been slightly reconfigured and won't form a stable foam as easily. Unpasteurized egg whites reach stiff peak stage in 1 to 3 minutes (depending on the whip) but pasteurized egg whites could take as long as 10 minutes and still not be as *good* as the unpasteurized whites.
