Has Anyone Used Quail Eggs For A Substitute For Eggs?

12 posts in this topic

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.

"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?

My grandmother used to make the best custard pies out of duck eggs.. :wub:

    • Hi Rob and welcome  You have found a good site with a supportive community! Celiac can be difficult to diagnose because it can affect so many different systems in the body. There are links to further info and some hopefully useful answers to common questions in this topic:  That said, I tested negative for celiac via blood and endoscopy but some people do not show up on the test for many reasons, but gluten is still a problem for them. It certainly is for me! Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity is one catch all term for such people. So...  I think your friend is on the right path. I'm sorry if he's not able to access medical care as it would be much better to diagnose this via a doctor and exclude anything else, or identify any other conditions should he have them.  However there's no treatment if he does have it bar STRICT adherence to a gluten free diet. He could try keeping a food journal listing what he ate, when and how he felt. I did and managed to track down the above symptoms along with a LOT more. Gluten was giving me chest pains, eyesight issues, anxiety, depression, balance issues, palpitations, nerve twitches etc etc. I only began to identify them all by keeping a journal and your friend could do that and follow the diet to see if he can get some answers for himself.  Best of luck to him and yourself    
    • If you are eating gluten free all testing will come up negative. That's blood draw, endoscopic biopsy AND dh biopsy.
    • I am writing for a friend of my daughter. 34 year old male - who somewhat suddenly developed chronic abdominal pain about 6 months ago. The symptoms progressed to include chronic fatigue.  While he had insurance he had CT, Colonoscopy and Endoscopy - routine labs -  nothing found - he had a celiac test - but not sure he followed the diet correctly before the test and there is also a type of Celaic that does  not test positive. In short this person has been able to work during the last 6 months and has since lost his insurance and has been denied for medicaid. I got a list of his symptoms  - and am hoping I can get some feed back from people with this disease to if his symptoms match up to this disease. Any input will  be greatly appreciated ! >>> thanks Rob. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Can only eat a few foods and once used to them cannot switch diet with out pain.
      When stomach pain is bad it is always associated with bad back pain and leg pain. 
      Extreme weakness/feeling faint if goes too long without food General fatigue
      Very easily fatigued after any physical activity
      Intermittent malaise
      Core muscles weakness Lacy (spotty) apperence on skin seemingly associated with any physical activity No ability to regulate temperature.. Overheats very easy... Over heating seems to lead to extreme weakness/feeling faint/fatigue/malaise type feeling
    • Thanks everyone for the advice and info! I've never really considered joining a support group before but its pretty cool to get intouch with people who understand what you're experiencing. For years everyone would just tell me I was a  hypochondriac but after I learned that I might have this disease and researching it these are all the symptoms I've been having! I finally don't feel crazy anymore! 
    • I decided to go Gluten Free out of support for my daughter and because I do struggle with digestive issues and my energy level isn't consistent.   I expected that I would feel better but I didn't truthfully expect a BIG difference.  In the month that I have been gluten-free I have twice consumed ONE bite of Gluten foods (a pastry once and then a bite of a mini muffin) because I had a brain fart and wasn't thinking.  Both times within 8-10 hours the stabbing stomach pains returned and irritability etc even though mentally I never gave either bite another thought.  I thought the first time may have just been a coincidence but I realize now the connection.   I have also had painful carpal tunnel for years.  Two days ago someone asked for an update on my daughter and I told her that she is now Gluten Free.  She remarked that she has been gluten-free for a few years and that she used to have painful wrists and now it is just gone.  I must be an inner cynic because I still assumed that her issues were not true carpal tunnel? LOL  The very next day I was grocery shopping with my daughter and when she picked up items she would wince and for the first time ever complained about the shooting pains in her wrists.   I am researching and reading about this so much now and I read about infertility and all these issues connected to gluten intolerance and I am SHOCKED that potentially I have been struggling with Gluten all this time and just really had no idea!
