Better'n Eggs Review

Better n EggsI'm a big fan of scrambled eggs and omelets, but the amount of saturated fat and cholesterol in eggs scares me away from eating these breakfast foods too often. Since I've been looking to switch up my morning routine, though, I went to the grocery store to get some Better'n Eggs Original flavor (egg whites) to try; I've used these (and Egg Beaters Egg Whites) before in recipes, but I've never tried them on their own. I picked up a 3-pack of 4-ounce cups (12 ounces total) "reduced for quick sale" for the reasonable price of $1.99.

I turned on my skillet when I got home, and poured in one 4-ounce cup of the Better 'n Eggs to scramble. I noticed that the product was somewhat thinner than real eggs, and it made scrambled eggs that were more liquid than normal. The egg product also did a weird separating thing where it looked like the fat/ oil separated from the rest of the product. The taste was a little bit off too - it lacked the rich yolky flavor of real eggs, which was very disappointing for me. I just didn't like it by itself - mixed up in some Mexican Scrambled Eggs ... maybe.

Better'n Eggs does have some things going for it. Each 1/4 cup serving, the equivalent of one egg, has just 30 calories, no fat, no cholesterol, 120 mg of sodium, 6 grams of protein. It also contains a variety of vitamins and minerals (including 10% of the RDA for calcium).

Pros: Convenient (both for omelets and for baking), healthy.
Cons: More expensive than a carton of eggs; slightly strange tasting.
Overall: I'll continue to buy this product sporadically for baking and quick fixes, but I'll stick to real eggs for most of my needs. After all, you can't soft boil egg substitutes!
