Default Egg Substitute??? What is this?

I have seen "Egg Substitute" mentioned in a number of recipes and have NO idea what this is. I'm not sure I've seen it over here, but I could just be looking in the wrong place, because I don't know what I'm looking for. Is it a powder, liquid? We can get 'real' eggs and frozen egg whites, but I'm not sure we get anything else.

Thank you for any help.

I think it's your frozen egg whites. We have a product here called Eggbeaters, which are pasteurized egg whites with some yellow food coloring and flavorings added. It comes packaged in something that looks like a milk carton and is sold either refrigerated or frozen - I've seen both. There are other brands too, but that's the most common one here.

If you don't want to use an egg subsitute in a recipe, usually the same amount of egg whites will work. The only time I'd stick with the egg substitute is when the recipe doesn't cook the eggs - like when I make low fat Caesar salad dressing - then I want to use the pasteurized eggs.

Hope this helps!
