I have a friend raising quale eggs. She says that some people whol are allergic to chicken eggs can eat quail eggs. Has anyone tried it?

I keep thinking about having been told that Spelt and Kamut were a good substitute for wheat. That didn't work out for me.

Spelt and Kamut are not allowed on a gluten-free diet, which explains why they didn't work for you.

Yeah, for sure. If only I woud have known about gluten. That was 5-10 years back when I sort-of knew I couldn't eat wheat. At any rate My concern is that if quail eggs were a substitue for chicken eggs, one could latch on to it and not know if it was just as bad for their body. I am not saying that it would be bad or good just wondering if it would work for some. But I am always a little leary of convenient substitutes because of what happened to me with wheat substitutes.

OK...you scared me there for a minute about the spelt and kamut.

Sorry, I don't have any info on quail eggs but hopefully someone will chime in on those.

I've read unscientific evidence that people who are allergic to chicken eggs can eat quail eggs. I personally don't know of anyone though. I would ask an allergist about that before trying them. That said, quail eggs are very healthy for you. I raise quail for meat and eggs and eat them on a regular basis. I just love them but I don't have an allergy or intolerance either.

I don't know if it's a good alternative. For baking, I've subbed applesauce and extra cocnut oil for eggs but to be honest, I haven't tried that with gluten-free baking yet; I imagine you'd need extra xanthum gum too.

I've only eaten qual eggs once and while I found them tastey, I doubt I'd get them again because of the cost. Plus there's that cuteness factor... I felt guilty eating such small cute eggs! LOL :blink: :rolleyes:

They work great in baking! You can use quail eggs in place of chicken eggs in most anything. Typically a large chicken egg measures 1/4 cup. I have found that 5-6 of my quail eggs equals one large chicken egg. The only way I haven't fixed them is soft boiled because it would be hard to get them scooped out. My only complaint is that they can be a booger to crack open. They have a stronger inner membrane than a chicken egg but less strong shell. I just crack them in a little container and remove any egg shell that makes it's way in.

I am hoping I am not allergic to eggs. I can't imagine cracking 90 eggs every morning to get my family going. Eggs are excellent protein, fat, and vitamin B if you don't overcook them.

Maybe I can raise them if I need to. I am not sure about gathering 90+ little eggs daily!

Duck eggs are apparently awesome for baking. Some people find the tase too strong for direct eating, others don't.

And they're a lot bigger than quail eggs. ;)

Once upon I had goose eggs. They are plenty big, but I don't know if they have a "different" protein than chicken eggs and would be tolerable. Where would me "allergist" find out that information?
