Vegan Non-Dairy Yogurt Egg Replacer

Vegan yogurt usually consists of a base of either soy, nut, rice or coconut that is fermented with lacobacillus cultures. Depending on the base and fermentation method, hydrocolloids such as tapioca starch, agar or xanthan gum may be added to increase viscosity.

Non-dairy yogurt isn't actually an egg replacer that's on par with eggs. It's about as effective as traditional dairy yogurt as an egg replacer in baking applications. This isn't much but it works great in things where significant binding power isn't needed such as vegan cakeswaffles and pancakes. It won't help you get things very dense and chewy like traditional eggs can but it's great for holding in moisture and adding flavor complexity at the same time.

What exactly do you call "non-diary yoghurt" ?
I found many types of those: soy-based, almond-based, coconut-based and I know it's possible to make cashew yoghurt..
Which one are you referring to ?

Hi Space,

Non-dairy yogurt consists of any yogurt made without dairy products. Non-dairy yogurt usually consists of a base made of soy, nut or coconut that's fermented with lactobacillus cultures. I'll update my article to be more clear. Thanks for your input!

Yogurt isn't vegan. It's milk based. Why would it be used to replace eggs for vegan recipes?
