cchartAs many as 15 million Americans have food allergies, and approximately 6 million of these individuals are children* .  The ubiquitous egg happens to be one of the most common food allergens, affecting approximately 1 million Americans. As a result, the demand for egg-free food products has created a multi-billion dollar market.

While many consumers are eager for egg-free offerings, they are not willing to compromise on product quality.  Food companies are thus challenged to create egg-free products without sacrificing product quality and sensory attributes.
