makes a good omelet
5/14/2013 7:51 AM
I had trouble getting it to disolve, even in hot water (tap), but when mixed it looked like runny egg whites. I cooked as an omelet with FD peppers and mushrooms, and I have to say it was quite good. Once cooked it looked and tasted 90% like fresh egg whites that i usually use. So shop with ease, this will not disappoint. I gave it 4 stars because of its disolving issue. would be 5 stars on taste
Same as fresh egg whites

Perfect scrambled eggs and in my humble opinion better than fresh eggs, certainly less expensive. For me, a large serving is 1/4 cup egg white powder and 3/4 cup warm water (6 egg whites), mix in blender for about 15 seconds, pour in cold non-stick pan. I've found these do very well cooked slowly on low to medium-low heat. Salt, pepper and a little Dash of garlic-herb. The perfect companion is 1/4 cup of rehydrated sausage TVP. I honestly could not tell it wasn't sausage, perfect high-protein, low fat meal. At half the cost of fresh eggs, you can't beat it. I'll be buying a case or two next time they're on sale.
I plan on keeping a can of these around.

I bought these as a way to have eggs on hand for food storage. I have found many more uses for them than I expected! You can add them to a smoothie for extra protein. Whipped egg white recipes are easier because you don't have to worry about salmonella since these are pasteurized, & they're good to avoid cholesterol and use in recipes that call for "egg substitute." I think this is cheaper than buying liquid egg substitute. BUT beware, when I followed the directions and tried to reconstitute it in hot water I think I cooked the egg! It wouldn't dissolve. It worked better for me using "warm" water just from the tap, then allowed to sit in the fridge a while to fully dissolve. Definitely don't use boiling water.
Great and Cost Effective Substitute For Nutrisystem Egg Breakfast!!

Happy with some of their products, but convinced their pricing is a ripoff (several dollars for one serving), I started looking to find substitutes for Nutrisystem foods. One of my favorites is a dried egg product that is quick, easy, tasty and low calorie. This led me to discover Honeyville dried egg whites. I have found that the product makes a perfectly good egg white ommelette that can be melted with a little cheese and turkey sausage for a great low calorie breakfast that is far cheaper, not to mention much easier than any other egg white method I have found.

Please beware that these powdered egg whites have an added ingredient of sodium lauryl sulfate.
GREAT PRODUCT, GREAT VALUE

I use these mostly to mix with whole eggs for breakfast (scrambled eggs, omlettes, etc.) to reduce the cholesteral while maintaining a high protein breakfast. (This is much more economical than buying fresh egg white only products, and they are shelf stable, so not storage or expiration date issues!) They also work for foods using whipped egg whites. You don't have to figure out what to do with the yolks, or worry about separating the eggs (even a bit of yolk can ruin a batch of whipped egg whites). They whip up reliably fluffy.

These egg whites are perfect for me. As I have the equivalent of a dozen scrambled egg whites for breakfast every morning. They are tasty with a little seasoning or with salsa, ketchup.....whatever you desire.
Much easier to make than normal whole eggs and you don't have to worry about wasting the yolk.

We bought these in a 6-combo. I tried hand-mixing them into one of those little 3-minute microwave chocolate cakes and they made it into a quasi angel food cake without any further fuss. They are definitely the real thing. We didn't buy more because we are not using them very quickly. I am considering trying them mixed with the whole egg for scrambling, to see if they will make the scrambled eggs hold together better. That would also dilute the cholesterol of the whole eggs.

I have made several batches of Almond Meringues and my husband has asked for more. The egg whites whip up great, especially with a KA. I have also used the egg whites in making homemade pizza crusts. I will definitely be buying this product in the future. It is a little tricky in mixing whites with water, but as long as it can be done in a mixer on a low setting until frothy, you have no problem with the end result.

Another good product. : )
I was recently on a zero carb/fat diet, and these suckers saved my mornings.
A suggestion for eating straight: Make them the night before, and vacuum seal them in a jar overnight - this will drastically reduce the 'whipped' effect you get from mixing the powder, and make a much more realistic end product.
(note: anyone with a FoodSaver or a hand held breakline vacuum pump ($20) can vacuum pack into standard glass jars (WITH SOME CAUTION! : ). Poke a hole in the lid with a thumbtack, put a 5mm square piece of anything smooth, sturdy, and totally flat (a bit of glass, plastic, or metal) and tape over the top of it. Poke a hole through a large suction cup to fit the vacuum tube tightly, and connect everything. Add in food, screw on lid, place suction cup on top and run: Viola - your powdered food will now last months or years longer in the freezer. : )

Gone are the days when you can buy really fresh eggs! I find when I buy "fresh" eggs they are rarely fresh. You know what I'm talking about. The whites run all over the frying pan instead of being firm, so you end up scrambling them instead. Finally I decided to try the freeze dried eggs. I'm really glad I did.
As you probably know, the news media has warned us about salmonella poisoning in raw eggs. With the freeze dried eggs and egg whites, I don't have to worry about the eggs being old or bacteria. These are pasteurized. I love that I can use the freeze dried egg whites in smoothies, make cakes or cookies and not worry about nibbling at the dough or licking the spoon.
surprisingly great taste for powdered!!

We were hesitant to buy these, my husband doesn't like those "powdered" ones they use in some delis and all he eats is egg whites. I figured I could use them for cooking waffles and other baking needs. They were excellent in both uses! My husband now makes egg white omlettes all the time, they beat up just like regular egg whites for the waffles, amazing! The only problem I see is they are a bit tough to mix(I use a whisk) but I've found that if I mix then let them sit 10 mins then mix again it is better and not a big problem considering the good taste and ease of use.
These are Great!

I really like this product for making protein drinks. I have kidney failure and whey or soy protein can not be processed by my kidneys.
No off taste either. I highly recommend this product for anyone who doesn't like the taste of protein powders or can't tolerate them.
