Eggless vs. Vegetarian vs. Vegan
Vegan is innately eggless. Eggless doesn’t necessarily mean vegan. Vegan is vegetarian as well. Vegetarian can be eggless but doesn’t have to be vegan…
If you want to confuse a waiter, these are the right terms to play with. 😉
We at LOCABA follow the most common definition for vegetarian food (it’s the one that also Wikipedia uses): Vegetarianism is the practice of abstaining from the consumption of meat (red meat, poultry, seafood, and the flesh of any other animal), and may also include abstention from by-products of animal slaughter.
Of course, all our cakes are vegetarian as they don’t contain meat or seafood. But in contrast to many conventional desserts, LOCABA cakes also don’t contain any gelatin which is often produced with skin, tendons, ligaments, and bones from beef or pork. So be aware: conventional cakes are not automatically vegetarian just because they are not baked with meat!
Vegetarian food can contain dairy and/or eggs. (Remember? “No meat, no by-products of animal slaughter”.) For cakes that contain eggs, we at LOCABA use cage-free eggs only.
Theoretically – and according to this definition – you could also produce food that is eggless but contains dairy. Actually we at LOCABA prefer to go all the way and offer vegan cakes that by definition don’t contain any animal-derived substances. So also no eggs and no dairy. (And, of course, not to mention meat or seafood.)
We also create special seasonal plant-based cakes. Of, if you want to try a smaller version – you will find the right choice among our Vegan Low-Carb Bento Cakes.
Reasons To Choose Egg-Free Cakes
For individuals observing religious practices that prohibit the consumption of eggs, eggless cakes and desserts become a divine solution. Whether it’s during festive occasions or religious ceremonies, these treats provide a guilt-free and enjoyable way to partake in celebrations and savor the sweetness of life.
Egg allergies are relatively common, and for those affected, eggless cakes and desserts are a true blessing. By eliminating eggs from the ingredients, these treats ensure that individuals with egg allergies can still relish delightful sweets without compromising their health or missing out on the joy of indulgence.
But we also integrate other dietary preferences in our Singapore bakery. That’s why you can have low-carb treats that are also eggless, dairy-free, and vegan. And of course, all LOCABA cakes from our healthy bakery in Singapore are vegetarian by nature.
