Safety Note on Egg Whites:
Using pasteurized egg whites is crucial for safety, especially when consumed raw. Pasteurization eliminates the risk of foodborne illnesses like salmonella. Always check the label to ensure the egg whites are pasteurized.
If you're looking for an alternative to egg whites, especially for individuals with egg allergies or dietary restrictions, you could consider other protein-rich ingredients. Options might include:
Greek Yogurt: An excellent source of protein, Greek yogurt can add creaminess and increase the protein content of the recipe.
Protein Powders: A scoop of protein powder (like whey, pea, or hemp protein) could substitute for the protein content of egg whites. However, this might change the texture and flavor of the recipe.
Silken Tofu: Blended silken tofu can be a good alternative, offering a similar texture to egg whites with added protein.
