No.  They have an egg substitute for making mayonnaise, and another for cakes.  Nothing to replace scrambled eggs.  Show me the egg substitute that's better for me than eggs, acts like eggs in cooking, makes a decent omelet, and is less expensive than eggs, and I'll consider it.  Until then, STFU.

I have yet to taste anything that starts out as a powder turn out like regular scrambled eggs.  These aren't going to do much for the fried egg market, either.

But as an ingredient substitute?  Why not.  Less cholesterol and calories and you won't know the difference.

Eggs are the perfect food. Low calorie, high protein, and a decent amount of good cholesterol and fat. A couple hard boiled eggs and a couple pieces of bacon are a perfect breakfast on the go.

This was my take on it. They made a separate ingredient for two purposes. Are they going to make an "egg substitute" for each and every purpose out there? One for cake, one for cookies, one for meatloaf, one for breading etc etc etc?

That seems like an incredible pain for people who want to actually cook, having 12 different "egg" boxes on hand, but that's just me.

This is stupid, first off the article says they only have an egg substitute for mayo and baking goods. Well first off it's not mayo if there aren't real eggs in it and second it's been done

It's generically called salad dressing

Oh and here's some vegetarian egg substitute.

It's a common misconception that dietary cholesterol is bad for us. It is not. Your body produces the crap that clogs your arteries, and studies are showing high cholesterol production correlates to high sugar intake.

This move to force veganism on everyone is alarming. Top of the food chain also means dominance over the wild, untamed vermin who will seize the top title if given the chance.  You enjoy becoming the chickens breakfast, the sheeps sex slave or giving up your breast milk for a cows bowl of cereal.  I, my friend, will continue to dine at the table of man, feast at the banquet of conquest. Yeah, I will savor the flesh of those who would seek to savor mine.  ;-/

I don't believe anybody is forcing anything here. If you understand how evolution works, keep eating a healthy omnivorous diet, and let the fools starve themselves to death.

On a side note, have you ever read the ingredient list on a typical vegan substitute *whatever*? That's some freaky $#!+ there.

Out of all the food stuffs that people in developing countries have trouble procuring, poultry and eggs aren't anywhere near that list. You can go to the tiniest most remote island in Southeast Asia and the locals will have a chicken coop. Humans have been stealing eggs from nests for as long as we have existed. There is no reason for this, especially since eggs aren't bad for us.

Now, artificial cow meat and pig meat have potential if we can make those happen. Cattle require massive amounts of land, water, grass for grazing, protection from other animals. Pigs aren't quite as expensive to raise, but still way higher up the list than chickens and eggs.

So this replacement egg isn't being used in lieu of eggs, doesn't act like eggs in cooking, isn't remotely egglike for any reason whatsoever... the same can be said for asphalt and I'm not eating that either.

Look, the Daily Mail are one of those publications that somehow have negative expertise on scientific subjects, reading their articles causes you to lose scientific knowledge.

So... back up a second, breathe, and put the pieces together on your own.  This is a project backed by the Gates foundation: they don't give a shiat about how things taste, they're more of a "try to solve world hunger" type of organization.

Now, consider depending on chickens for the portion of your dietary needs covered by eggs, and think about how easily they're, say, stolen or killed in a subsistence agriculture situation (they primary target market of the Gates foundation) versus how easily a set of plants that have to be mixed together are stolen.  Now think about distribution, and spoilage.  Take another breath, and take another moment to consider something that can be made from a combination of plants, compare it to existing egg substitutes that require large amounts of industrial processing, and think again about living in, say, central Africa with a warlord or three between you and every industrialized region.

Long story short: this is an incredibly useful thing.  Stop whinging just because the modern foods designed to keep most of our 6+ billion asses from starving to death doesn't make a perfectly delectable foie gras or whatever, you ridiculous first-world-focused person.

//If there's a demand for your subsistence-level substitute in the first world due to crazy vegans or whatever, and you can get the first-world idiots to subsidize your awesome food substitute so you're not sinking as much cash into it, more farking power to you.

Except they are talking about putting this stuff on market shelves in the first world,  So it should meet our first world focus, shouldn't it?

And seriously, you think an African village that has a "warlord or three between them and every industrialized region" is going to have better access to a industrially produced food source or the eggs they get from the chicken in their back yard? Hell chickens eat bugs and seeds, two really cheap things, when they die they produce meat, when you leave them to their eggs you get more chickens. Now how is a self replicating and sustaining food source cheaper and more efficient then a multiply types of crops from multiply growing regions being chemically processed?

I haven't tried it, but apparently ground flaxseed and warm water mixed together make a good substitute for eggs in baked goods. I've omitted eggs in cookie and brownie recipes for years with good results. I just don't like them. They creep me out, probably because as a child, my parents kept chickens and I had to collect eggs. Home-fresh eggs have shiat on them, and it's disgusting. The chickens roamed in our yard and ate insects, which apparently made the eggs much darker and they had such a strong flavor you could taste them in anything my parents baked with them: cookies, pancakes, waffles (which my mom once made that were laced with eggshells throughout). I had a bad experience once throwing out the pancakes my dad insisted making every Saturday as a special treat even though I hated them. I snuck them into the garbage, and he made me eat them out of the garbage.

So, I guess I do understand pretty well why I hate eggs now that I think about it.

exactly!!  if they hate meat so much, why would they want to simulate the taste (often through pretty unnatural methods)??

plus, plants are living creatures,  why do they feel it's ok to kill and consume them?!?
