I was thinking of ordering some myopure egg white powder to add to my shakes and noticed that it says it can be reconstituted as liquid. Does this mean it could be used for cooking things like egg white ommelettes? If so what amounts do you use and how would you mix it?January 14, 2008 at 5:44 am #6192
yes you could, but I’d imagine it wouldn’t taste great, unless you packed it with other stuff like cheese. 😆January 14, 2008 at 8:10 am #6193
Yes the taste is pretty bland. Also for scrambled egg whites the result can end up and little watery.
However, as ST points out, you can improve on this. One whole egg added to reconstituted egg white makes a big difference. I imagine cheese would do the same.

Egg white powder blended with a banana and or yoghurt actually taste quite good and makes for a good brekky when time is against you.January 14, 2008 at 8:12 am #6195
Oh, and throw in some oats.. 😀January 14, 2008 at 8:35 am #6196
Thanks guys, that was pretty much what I was thinking. I usually use 3 whole eggs and 3 egg whites, adding other things for flavour. Basically I just wanted to know if it would work in terms of consistency.January 14, 2008 at 9:58 pm #6197
Regarding consistency: play around with the amount of water you use to reconstitute.
Another thing I’ve been meaning to test (but haven’t) is to reconstitute the night before and keep mix in fridge till morning to see if it jells up a little.
