SUBSTITUTIONS FOR EGGS

Any of the following are equivalent to 1 egg (select the proper replacement by determining the function of egg in recipe- i.e. binder, or emulsifier, etc...) Note: The replacement that works well in one application may not work well in a different application.

Also Note- Egg substitutes sold in most supermarkets do contain egg products and should not be confused with egg replacements (Ener-G Egg Replacer is egg free.)
