A key to food items and allergies:
Allergic towards egg: A person who is allergic towards egg is said to be hypersensitive towards nutritional substances erived from eggs such as yolk or the white of egg, albumin, Globulin, eggnog, etc. This may result in overreaction of the immune system. It is advisable to stay away from food items made with egg if you are allergic towards egg. However, you need not worry about not eating egg. Many substitutes for egg are available in the market today, which includes potato starch, tapioca, etc., and you may use them without any trouble. You can even use apple sauce as an alternative to egg.
