    Default Egg Powder

    I have searched everywhere for Egg Powder/Dried Egg in the UK. Iíve seen some recipes on here that use it. Can anyone tell me where they get theirs from please?

    Thanks

    I've got absolutley no idea what this tastes like ( I'm guessing close to 'eggy' but not spot on )

    I'd go for this onehttp://cgi.ebay.co.uk/EGG-POWDER-POW...item4cef45827fi'd say the protein ones would have lots of other additives. But i did just pull that out of my a@@ and have no idea.

    Come to think of it, I have no idea what cooking with egg powder will be like, is it really an egg substitute or just convenient to carry?

    It's just spray dried whole egg,nothing added to it.I'll be doing mostly scrambled eggs and omelletes.

    I used to get it in the baking department in my local Tesco but they stopped selling it a few months ago! They may still do it in other Tesco stores my mate lives in Swindon and they still stock it.

    Scrambled nug and omelettes is what we used to use it for.

    You can knock some together and add it to fried rice at home, if using up leftover boiled rice.

    Well the whole egg powder arrived today.Have'nt had time to do much more than mix some with water into a runny batter constituency and chuck it in the frying pan,I'm well impressed with it.Tastes more like pancake than egg to be honest,I think with sliced salami or cheese etc it will be a good thing to carry on light weight overnighters or canoe trips.I cant see why it should'nt be a success used for scrambled egg either.

    Yep me too, so I contacted the manufacturers, it used to be SuperCook, or something like that, but they were bought by Dr. Oetker Ė they have decided that thereís no retail market for whole dried egg Ė end of story!

    Not surprising really, the majorit of folk who bought it would have been fan's long before Marks and Spencers developed the whole 'chill chain' concept in this country - negating the need for dried rationable goods. The camping/bushcraft community probably isn't enough to justify supermarkets getting it in.

    Does anyone know how how to dry yer own egg, or a good way of transporting fresh eggs in to the woods? In my dads day they would have just looked for some wild eggs (pigeon or something similar) and that'd solve the problem. Definitely not the done thing now...

    Try http://www.internationalegg.co.uk/ I've found the whole egg is good stuff if a little pricey.

    Never heard of Weigh and Save before, donít think there is one by me, there is a Holland and Barrets though, was it pure dried egg or the protein stuff? The protein stuff might be exactly the same for all I know!?

    It is exactly the same.

    Tesco baking section - Supercook Egg powder - works for bannock, scrambled egg or omlettes.

    Edit - sorry missed posts in the middle - didn't spot reference already there - I will be disappointed if they've completely stopped.

    Well, I tried my egg powder this weekend. It was very nice! I put to much powder and added the water to the powder which resulted in lumps and a massive amount of egg to consume!! But it made damn fine scrambled egg! I will try adding the powder to the water next time :-)

    I repack egg powder as part of my business which wholesales all sorts of processed egg products. What I don't know isn't worth knowing! Any more questions are welcome! Beware the fishing bait powder, its inedible - not fit for human consumption.

    never really thought about selling it in small packs, but top of head about £10 for 1kg packed in a resealable plastic tub which we use for salad. Its grade A fresh stuff which I sell to bakeries.
