All aquafabas are not the same! At meringueshop, we celebrate the ingredient, aquafaba, and use it as a foundation in all of our confections and desserts. Our meringue process begins with making a fresh batch of aquafaba. We gently simmer dried organic chickpeas to produce a pure, protein-rich ‘consommé and then reduce it to just the right consistency. After straining the broth, the aquafaba is ready to whip, just like egg whites.
Aquafaba performs just like egg whites. Add to cookies, pancake batters or cakes as a leavener, bake flawless eggfree meringues, or fold into light as air mousse.
