Liquid Egg Whites - A Couple of Questions

Hello everyone,
I bought some liquid egg whites for a diet I'm on, but have a few questions. 1) how much of the liquid equals how many actual eggs? 2) do you scramble the egg whites in the same way you would regular eggs and 3) can I put them in the microwave to cook the scrambled eggs?

Thanks!

1/4 cup equals one egg.

Scrambling is not necessary, they already are

Microwaving is OK. Cook a little, stir cook, a little more, stir. Repeat until done.

Doesn't the package say somewhere on it? I use them, but I don't have a container to check at the moment.

I buy the "EggBeaters" often (which are just colored egg whites) and it is 1/4 c = 1 egg, more or less (remember that whole eggs come in a large variety of sizes, but for using in recipes the above formula will work). Yes, you can scramble just like regular eggs, omlets sometimes actually come out better. Yes, you can microwave, but just as with whole eggs, they might come out a little rubbery. If you are scrambling, take them out and mix them up periodically.

Problem I have with these is that they stick to the pan more so than regular eggs

I agree re: the sticking. Husband uses the egg white products exclusively, while I remain a natural egg devotee. Whenever I make omelets, mine slides out of the non-stick pan like magic; his ALWAYS sticks unless I use butter (REAL butter) in the pan, which sort of defeats the health purposes of using the egg whites in the first place. . . .
