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.
