RE: Egg Substitute (from gelatin)

I think the problem here is that unless you have an allergy to eggs, you're
probably not eating them for moral/ethical reasons/beliefs. Since gelatin is
derived from animal bones and skin, most vegetarians won't eat it.

I wonder if agar would work? Can you get agar in powerdered form?
