Finding the Best Egg White Powder . . . And A Recipe

Egg white powder is a popular baking ingredient (think meringue or royal icing) as well as a staple in vintage cocktail recipes. 

To find the best bets, we whipped up batches of macaron cookies using several popular brands:

Best Almond Flour Macarons

Then we started tasting! Before we declare the winners, how about a recipe for Royal icing to decorate sugar cookies?

Royal Icing Recipe

Start with Whipped Egg Whites:

Whisk together

  • 2 tbsp dried egg whites
  • 6 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar

Then to make the icing, take the whipped egg whites and add powdered sugar to the thickness that is desired.

The result should look like this when decorating cookies:

How We Pick Products To Recommend

We often turn to our readers (3 million strong!) to find products to recommend. We ask our parent readers for their favorites and consider their real-world experiences in our recommendations.

When we test a product, we always purchase it with our own monies. We do not take free samples, as we believe that compromises our independence.

We also fact check manufacturer information with our own measurements. If a maker claims a product weighs X pounds, we will weigh it to make sure. If the battery life is supposed to be six hours, we will see how it stands up in the real world.

In some cases, we will do interviews with experts in the field to get additional feedback on products.

To get hands-on time with products, we regularly meet one-on-one with gear companies and even tour manufacturing facilities. (When we do this, we pay our own travel expenses).

Why Trust Us

We’ve been rating and reviewing products for the home and families since 1994. We do extensive research, evaluating products with an eye toward quality, ease of use and affordability.

We make our living from affiliate commissions, but we always recommend what we think are the best bets for our readers (not the ones that are the most expensive). We are always looking for products that offer the best bang for the buck.

Our independence is a key reason why we have been doing this so long. As we mentioned above, when we purchase a product for hands-on testing, we do so with our own money.

Here’s another key point: we don’t take money from the brands we review. No free samples, no sponsors, no “partnerships.” Our work is 100% reader-supported!
