Good and handy
I'm reviewing this product as I got a free sample from Ocado. I usually but the organic one but this was equally good, worked a treat and made one of the best pavlova so far. Recommended.
Contains Guar Gum
I used to love purchasing this product but got abdominal pains after breakfast in the morning. I'm not sure if it was due to poor packaging, but also the addition of the thickener, guar gum, may be a problem as it's known to cause digestive issues. I will try the organic version when it's back in stock as it doesn't contain the thickener. Until then, back to separating my eggs the old way!
I wouldn't purchase again. I like fresh.
Great for meringues
Ive been buying two chicks for years and was delighted to receive them as a free gift. They have a great shelf life and make excellent meringues with no waste. Also really good in cocktails like a gin fizz - perfect pasteurised froth!
Makes the most fantastic meringues and pavlovas and one carton would probably make around 24 small meringues or one huge pavlova fill with whipped double cream and M&S frozen raspberries ..perfect.
a gift from Ocado
Happened to be offered these when I was shopping for a meringue gateau recipe. I have a freezer full of egg whites - or so it seems, but they don't whisk as well as fresh, so it seemed an opportune time to give these a go. I'd say they were slightly worse than frozen egg whites for volume. I don't expect there'll be mush more than a sugar puddle by morning. On the plus side, no wastage of the yolks. Maybe if I'd used more, rather than taking the advice off the packaging. I'm guessing this isn't the product's main reason for being.
