Vegan egg replacements
Replacing eggs in baking and cooking is very simple. Whether you are baking a cake or fancy some ‘egg’ fried rice, there is a plant-based alternative available.
Egg production is cruel. Let’s briefly explain why:
Male chicks are useless to the egg industry as they do not produce eggs, and because they don’t grow as fast or big as s broiler chickens who are electively bred for meat, so they are disposed of – either by gassing, suffocation, or being ground up alive. The lives of laying hens are miserable too; whether caged or ‘free range’, Animal Aid investigations have found that these labels mean nothing when it comes to their well-being. And once they no longer produce the amount of eggs to be considered profitable, the hens are sent to slaughter – usually at about 18 months old.
Egg replacements are very easy to come across nowadays.
Commercial egg replacers are also available from most health food shops and some supermarkets.
