Egg whites are a staple ingredient in a classic recipe for meringues, but an all-new online store called 'Meringueshop' is out to prove that flavorful vegan meringue products can be produced with a substitute.
In place of eggs, the Meringueshop uses an ingredient called aquafaba, brine from chickpeas, in the making of its vegan meringues. In the same way that eggs allow meringues must be whipped to a light-as-air consistency, aquafaba does the same. As a result, Meringueshop sells a wide variety of vegan-friendly treats in flavors like maple, brown sugar, an aromatic 'potpourri' collection and what it calls 'drip drops,' or meringues that have been lightly drizzled with chocolate.
One of the other standout vegan products that is made with aquafaba is Sir Kensington's 'Fabanaise,' an eggless mayonnaise-style spread.
