I can't get Meringue Powder here so can I substitute it for an egg white? If a recipe asks for 1Tbls of Meringue powder how many egg whites should I use?
I'm very interested to know also about using meringue powder instead
of fresh egg whites. If anyone knows how to do this please leave a comment.
The wilton meringue powder offers this subsitution:
Can be used as an egg white substitute in baking.
2 tsp. Meringue + 2 Tbsp. Water = 1 Egg White
So, 1 T meringue powder is the same as 1 1/2 egg whites (3 tsp = 1 T). You'd want to decrease your liquids accordingly.

Wilton does ship overseas....but I'd guess they'd charge a lot for shipping. Sorry.
