New Food Find: An Egg Yolk Substitute for Egg Allergy

New Food Find: An Egg Yolk Substitute for Egg Allergy
There are many egg substitutes on the market today which allow those with egg allergy to replace mayonnaise, bake cakes and even make mock egg whites.  But until now, there has not been an easy replacement for the egg yolk.

A new product called, "The Vegg," is a vegan egg yolk alternative and 

allows those with egg allergy to finally have a replacement for fried or scrambled "eggs", Hollandaise sauce, frittatas, omelets, and more.

Vegg is made from nutritional yeast, sodium alginate (a seaweed derivative), black salt and beta carotene.
