Egg White Foams
Egg white foams are created when air is beaten into egg whites. You'll have a higher foam if you let the egg white stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes before you start beating. Cream of tartar and lemon juice help stabilize the foam by adding acid to the protein web of the foam.
