Egg Substitute : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Is there a "regular" store where one can get powdered egg substitute? I know that this is coming late in the game, so I don't really have time to do a mail-order thing.

Any help is appreciated.


p.s. I live in Phoenix, AZ, so no problem finding supermarkets, specialty stores and malls. We even have a new Y2K preparedness store!

I obtained my bulk powdered egg order from my local Wild Oats Market; the bulk manager special ordered it for me and it came within a week (4 days, I believe). Most large, full service grocery stores that have an in-store bakery have the ability to special order things like powdered eggs, and other dehydrated products (potatoes, etc.). These products come from Sysco, Lady Baltimore, and other wholesale food distributors. It's worth a try.

I think most health food stores routinely stock powdered egg whites and substitutes. Let your fingers do the walkin' through the yellow pages of your local phone book, you may be pleasantly suprised.

Good luck.

If this is for baking try soy very well in most things. My son can't tell the difference in chocolate chip cookies.

As for Gary Hansen. Besides wheat, corn, soybeans, oats and canned meats they also carry dried whole eggs. They also have a scrammbled egg mix.

I have met Gary and his family - they are good people and run a solid, honest business. I purchased some of his products, including the eggs, and have been very pleased. Their pricing is good and service is quick.

I am not related to them or their business in any way. I am only a happy customer.

Cel -

I bought several boxes of dehydrated egg substitute at my local health food store. 1 box = 144 eggs for about 5 dollars. Good for cooking or baking substitute only.

Cel, you might try a local bakery, to see if they'll sell you a bag or two out of their own stocks (bakeries use lots of powdered eggs).

Remember... real eggs keep for quite a while too. So you might want to stock up. I have dipped 15 doz. in paraffin and they should last quite a while.

See: eggs or other threads on the prep forum.
