Vegan Baking Tips: Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder as Egg Substitues
Let us introduce you to the method of Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder as egg substitutes. Egg replacers are all the rage because of certain diets, like cholesterol, vegan or because of allergies.
Although, some children may outgrow this allergen, some don’t. Luckily, there is more than one way to replace an egg in baking and cooking. And with a lot more vegan products, finding a replacer that works for you has never been easier!
While there is more than one way to replace an egg, this is how we do it at Naturlax😎
But first let’s talk about how this works.
How it Works
Psyllium husk is derived from the plant genus Plantago. The seeds of this plant are what we use to create our psyllium husk fiber products. Pure Psyllium Husk is a great alternative since it’s low in cholesterol, calories, and is a super nutrient!
Now this is what it does: When mixed with water, psyllium fiber transforms into a gel-like substance making it the perfect binding and thickening agent! Binding agents are great for heavier baking recipes like cakes, brownies, and cookies.
We recommend using our Pure Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder or Plain No Flavor Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder since they won’t alter the taste of your recipes. Keep in mind, our Plain No Flavor does contain our propriety blend of erythritol and stevia. While our Pure does not. The choice is yours!
But here’s a delicious tip: When making pancakes, use our Chai Flavored Fiber Powder as an egg replacer for a tasty chai flavored pancake! Plus, when you have fiber in the morning, you feel full therefore eating less!
Are you looking for another thickening agent for your sauces? Yes, psyllium husk can also act as a thickening agent for savory sauces and soups! Here’s how it does just that:
As mentioned earlier, our fiber creates a gel-like substance when mixed with fluids. So, when used in sauces, it will definitely thicken without adding extra calories! Here’s how our friend Jasmin used our product in her Firecracker Chicken dish!
