The Vegg simulates egg yolk with, primarily, nutritional yeast, which gives an umami savor, black salt, which adds a sulfur taste, sodium alginate, which is a seaweed extract that provides viscous and gelatinous properties, and beta carotene, for coloring. Sulfur is a primary constituent of the flavor and smell of egg yolk; it gives egg recipes like egg salad and overdone hard boiled eggs that strong smell.

The sodium alginate gels when exposed to a calcium chloride solution, forming a skin, which makes it possible to actually encapsulate the Vegg mixture into what looks like an egg yolk. Home-made egg yolks like this are pretty much a trick, and not how you have to use the product. All it takes to use it is to mix it up in a food processor (not by hand).

The taste of the product is not exactly egg, but very close, and the smell is too. The verisimilitude is owing primarily to the sulfurous black salt.

It improves tofu mock egg salad, French toast, and tofu scrambles. I see in some other reviews that it can also be used for some baking and other recipe applications (other reviews mention meatloaf, pie fillings, and cookies); I've not tried it in any such uses yet.

The only shortcoming is the packaging. The Mylar package has instructions for preparing the whole package, which might be useful to a vegan food service (if one can imagine that kind of enterprise), but not for home use. For a single serving, the instructions are to use 1 teaspoon of Vegg powder and 1/4 cup water, in a blender, miniblender, or food processor (not mixed by hand). And that works fine. Except that trying to measure out of the envelope is not all that easy, and then you have an open Mylar envelope to store. They really should package Vegg in some kind of vessel--a wide-mouth jar, like the ones chopped garlic or bread yeast come in.

The Vegg is an amazing product! I'm a vegan who doesn't miss meat, cheese or dairy - but eggs! This is the perfect solution for all of those with egg cravings, low-cholesterol diets or those who are allergic to eggs. It tastes exactly like the real thing but without the cruelty or cholesterol!! BUY THIS! You won't regret it!

I may be biased, as I have helped create some of the recipes available on thevegg.com, but I think The Vegg is a terrific product! I have been eating a vegan diet for over 20 years, and I can't think of any other vegan egg yolk substitute. One of the coolest ways to use The Vegg is to make a spherified Vegg yolk. You can drop a quantity of The Vegg (once mixed with water) into a 1% (by weight) solution of calcium chloride and the liquid will form a ball with a membrane around it - which looks and tastes just like an uncooked egg yolk. Try placing a spherified Vegg yolk in the center of a ravioli with some tofu ricotta or sweet potato filling - vegan gourmet for sure! Just this weekend I saw calcium chloride granules on sale at Lowe's - Ball brand packages them for use with canning. If you want more information about spherification, there is a link to a video at thevegg.com. Also, if you haven't made french toast with The Vegg - go try it, NOW!

I have used The Vegg for a variety of recipes. It is not exactly like eggs but gives that egg flavoring. You may have to use starch with some of the recipes for a thickening/binding effect. I have already developed two tofu cheesecake recipes that are pretty wonderful.

I bought this about three weeks ago, and am about to order a second one. Really interesting product!

I've used it to make the best vegan vanilla ice cream I've ever made, or eaten (this is saying something, as I've eaten a lot of vegan ice creams in the 15 years I've been vegan).

I made a yellow cake from scratch and replaced the egg yolks with half Vegg and the other half Ener-G Egg Replacer... and it came out awesome, very moist and very good. I did make a sauce hollandaise and wasn't crazy about it, because for some reason that particular sauce (maybe it was the lemon?) really enhanced the nutritional yeast flavor in the Vegg, which I am not so fond of. But in the desserts, the flavor disappears.

I also tried a tofu scramble with some Vegg added, kind of as an egg yolk. Very eggy and slimy. It thickens very quickly when mixed with a hand blender, which is how I make small batches of it. At first, when you blend it, it smells strongly of nutritional yeast... but after a few minutes, weirdly enough, it actually smells like egg yolk. Like an egg yolk from a fried egg that has been pierced.

I'm ordering more to make a pudding, because based on my current successes with it as a dessert yolk replacer, the pudding should be excellent.

I can't say enough about this product. The only thing lacking is it's not in every supermarket. It's easy, fast, versatile, AND IT TASTES AND FEELS LIKE EGG. I'm not sure it isn't an egg. I did buy a $10 mini food processor to blend it, be sure to use a blender or food processor to give it what it needs to give back to you. and it freezes!!
