Egg White Allergy

Recommended Posts

Just curious to know...

...if I'm allergic to egg whites, can I still eat the yolk? Do I rinse it?

Also, since I seem to be allergic to pretty much all grains and am thinking of trying buckwheat or tapioca, anybody have recipes for unleavened bread (allergen-free)? Olive oil seems to be the only oil I can use. Thanks!

My son is allergic to eggs (whites and yolks).

They normally tell you to just avoid the whole egg. Since whites are the part that are useful for gluten-free baking, maybe not such a great cost.

I think it depends on the severity of the allergy. If you think you may be at risk of a severe reaction, then you should avoid the whole thing since the yolk will carry traces of white.

If I was trying to separate them, I think the best way would be hard boiled. I think that if you try to do it raw, it will carry a very substantial amount of egg white.

I'm not allergic to eggs but I had the Enterolab test done for eggs and I'm intolerant. I wrote them and asked if I could at least eat the whites and they wrote back and said it's the protein in the whites that I'm intolerant to. I could eat the yolks if I can separate the egg. I cook, so that's not a problem if I want to eat them.
