egg whites vs egg beaters

The difference between egg whites & egg beaters substitutes

Experts tell us egg yolks are bad for us.

Some change their diet and consume eggs without the yellow part.

This leaves many people confused:

“What is the difference between egg beaters and egg whites?”

Egg beaters are modified egg whites.

They are typically fortified with lots of nutrients such as:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B-12
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • folic acid
  • Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)

They also contain Xanthan gum (a sugar derivative of corn).

Egg beaters are pasteurized, too.

Egg beaters are much easier to use than real eggs. Because there is no shell. And the egg whites have been separated from their yolk.

But egg beaters do not work well as an egg substitute in some recipes. Because they lose their whipping ability.

When using egg white substitutes in recipes, use these simple conversions:

1/4 cup of egg beaters equals one real egg.

One real yolk equals 3 tablespoons of egg beaters.

The other benefit of egg beaters is its shelf life:

Natural egg whites stay fresh for 60 days, while egg beaters have a shelf life of 90 days.
