Emergency Egg Substitute
For 1 whole egg, substitute 1/4 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product (thawed if frozen).
- These products are based mostly on egg whites, contain less fat than whole eggs, and have no cholesterol.
Another option is to combine 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons water to replace 1 egg.
Healthy Egg Substitutes
For 1 whole egg, substitute 2 egg whites, which have less cholesterol than the yolks. You can also use 1/4 cup egg substitute.
- Depending on the brand, egg product can have up to 50 percent less calories, less fat, and less cholesterol. However, keep in mind that egg product is higher in sodium and carbs than eggs.
For another healthy egg substitute, combine 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons water to replace 1 egg.
- Flax has half the calories and almost half the fat of an egg. It also has 100 percent less cholesterol and adds fiber.
