• Simplesse® is used as a fat substitute in ice cream and frozen desserts and is made from either egg or milk protein.

Other hints on what to avoid
• ALWAYS read labels. ALWAYS ask about ingredients in restaurants, bakeries, etc. ALWAYS call the company if you have a question (they will be most accommodating if you tell them you have an egg allergy). WHEN IN DOUBT: DO NOT EAT IT!
• Avoid obvious egg sources in the diet (such as scrambled eggs, omelets, timbales, souffles, custards, egg noodles, and eggnog). Check product labels for eggs or other indications that eggs were used in preparation, as listed above.
• Egg substitute products are generally made with egg white and should be avoided. Check labels.
• Baked products may contain eggs because eggs help create and maintain product structure. Check labels of commercial baked goods to ensure they are egg-free and use egg-free baked goods recipes. Some candy contains egg white. Baking powder may contain egg derivatives and content needs to be checked closely.

Tips for egg-free cooking
• Use an egg substitute such as Jolly Joan®, Golden Harvest®, or Ener-G Foods® egg replacer. Other brands, including Egg Beaters® may contain egg whites.
• Mashed bananas or apricot puree (2 tablespooons=one egg) can add flavor and bind/thicken batters or candies. Dry, unflavored gelatin may be used to bind or thicken fruit desserts.
• Because egg-free baked products crumble easily, use smaller pans. Xantham gum is an excellent binder. Add an extra 1/2 teaspoon egg-free baking powder for each egg to enhance leavening, along with another egg substitute to bind or thicken.
• To enhance the flavor of egg-free cookies or cake, add extra ingredients such as raisins, nuts, coconut, seeds, or spices.
• Two tablespoons of pureed vegetables can replace an egg in soups, sauces, and other dishes.
• To thicken sauces, use flour, corn starch, or xantham gum.
