Has Anyone Used Quail Eggs For A Substitute For Eggs?

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?

    • If you are able to eat dairy,  Against the Grain is hands down the best gluten-free pizza (and I'm from N.Y. coincidentally:-)) http://againstthegraingourmet.com/store-locator Regarding parties, or any social gathering for that matter,  I always eat before hand and get a glass of wine or cider when I'm there. 
    • Hey All, I was wondering if anyone has tried gluten free pizza? I'm specifically talking about the store bought kind. I'm looking for a cheat meal - I've been eating mainly non processed fresh food but I need a little something to stay sane every now and then. I'm from New York so i'd say I have a pretty high standard of pizza lol. Are there any good frozen ones that are worth eating? I don't think i've ever eaten a frozen pizza in my life but I don't particularly have the time right now to make my own.  Also while I'm posting I figure i'll ask. I'm going to this event with my friend at her work. It's like a dinner party. How do I navigate this situation food wise? Should I just eat at home and get drinks there or plan to eat there but take snacks just in case nothing seems safe?  Thanks guys!
    • Hi Dalek, JMG has it right, any food with wheat, rye or barley is a gluten containing food.  In addition, watch out for malt, which is sometimes made from barley.  That includes the malt in beers.
    • Interesting!! I'm going to share that with her dr. I'll have to look into the gluten sensitivity more myself, the main reason we started testing is due to poor growth. As I learned more, I've seen several symptoms that could be explained by celiac. I like feeling informed so I'll know what to talk to the dr about or ask about. I think those are the results we are waiting for still, I couldn't remember the name.
    • Call your doctor's office and ask them to relay your request to the doctor to amend the test request, they should be able to sort it without an additional meeting and delay. Worth a try anyway I think the Biocard tests TTG IGA and it may give you an indication. Do post your results here as I'm sure others will be interested in its effectiveness. If it's negative however remember that there are several celiac tests for a reason. Some test on one, some on another etc... However my guess is your doctor will dismiss them and want their own testing. That's the usual experience.
