Egg Substitute

Hi Everybody!!
What's "egg beaters" (also referred to as "egg substitute" - I think)? Can
it be replaced with something else? And what would the proportion be?
Does anybody know of brands for sale in the UK?
I am not a strict vegan as I sometimes eat products containing eggs, so what
would be the benefit of using an egg substitute, if any?
Oh, btw I found this recipe on a web site yesterday
(http://www.dietwatch.com), which called for egg beaters. It sounded
delicious & I will try it as soon as I know what this "egg beaters" is!!!
Ah, I'm sure you could replace the Full Fat Cheese with a Very Low Fat or
Non-Fat Version.
Enjoy it!!
