I have not been able to find Kingsmill egg replacer for a little while - at least one on the grocery store shelf that had not expired. Yesterday I found a box and then at closer inspection found that the label now said Pane Riso foods. The box looks exactly the same as before. I tried to google the new name but found nothing. Has anyone else checked into this change?

No. Do they have any kind of contact info on the box?

I just looked at the Kingsmill website - http://www.kingsmillfoods.com/contact.html - and they do not appear to have egg replacer as a product any more. All they have is gluten-free stuff and Lacteeze... So maybe they "sold" that product to Pane Riso.

I stopped purchasing the egg replacer last year because I tried using 1/2 tsp baking powder mixed with 1 tsp oil and 2 tsp water for my recipes and I found it worked better. It never went lumpy.

I only used the store-bought replacer briefly at the start of our allergic journey - until we found out my son was allergic to potato (it has potato starch in it).

I now use a variety of egg subs, including an oil/water/baking powder mixture. My favourite one is a mixture that I make by boiling flax seeds with water, and then straining it. I then freeze it into cubes, which I call fleggs (flax eggs). It's true!

I love my fleggs. :)

Karen,
I would love to know your exact measurements. What a great idea.

I have no choice but to use the boiled flax seeds... my son is allergic to eggs and potatoes and all the commercial egg replacers have potato starch in them. :?
I've just started trying out ground flax instead of whole seeds... that way there are no visible seeds in the stuff I bake. I've only tried it twice but it worked quite well!!! :D
