Eggbeaters dont have the fat and cholesterol of whole eggs. They have a lot less calories, similar to egg whites. They are basically egg whites with some yellow coloring in them, and a few mild seasonings..

So you can have one whole egg for 80 calories or 1/4 cup of egg beaters (same volume) for 30 calories, and no fat...

From Wikpedia.....

Egg Beaters is a product manufactured in St. Louis, Missouri and is currently sold in the United States by ConAgra Foods as a substitute for whole chicken eggs. Egg Beaters is made with real eggs and is composed of egg whites separated from their yolks and fortified with vitamins and other nutrients. Xantham gum and guar gum are also added as emulsifiers and thickeners. By eliminating the yolk, Egg Beaters has significantly fewer calories than whole eggs and has no fat or cholesterol. The product's slogan is, "The Real Thing. Only Better."..

Thank you. This cleared things up... haha. Guess I could have just Googled it...

Comment #3

Haha. true..

If you want the ease of eggbeaters but don't like the additives, I found that my trader joes carries an "all egg white" substitute as well as a "organic" eggbeater.

I've tried all variations and don't taste difference b/t eggbeaters and these specialty...

I've seen people mention doing a quiche with them, but doesn't quiche have a crust?..

Comment #5

You can definitely make a crustless quiche. Just follow the directions for whatever recipe you're using, omit the crust and bake as instructed. Guess this could also be called a frittata.....

I MADE JUST THAT TONITE FOR DINER,ADDED A LITTLE ONION (I KNOW NOT ALLOWED) CHEESE,MUSHROOMS AND BAKED IT FOR 35 MIN AT 350...I USED EGG WHITES..

I was trying the egg beaters this weekend and am soooo confused about the serving size. I have seen it listed as two cups. But does that mean cups as in the measurment standard, or cups as in they come in a package of three cups and you're supposed to have two at a time. I went by the measurement this weekend and realied one package of three doesn't even equal two cups. Help??..

Making quiche for dinner tonight! Or frittata, if that's the right turn. Look what a cook I'm becoming...
