If you eat processed food and you’re not a vegan, a decent portion of your diet probably comes from factory-farmed eggs. Sure, you may stick to cage-free eggs when you’re cooking omelets, but 95% of eggs in the U.S. come from battery-caged facilities where birds are packed body to body in impossibly small spaces.
A San Francisco startup wants to change that. It makes a plant-based egg substitute so believable that it’s about to sign two deals with Fortune 500 food companies that want to use the stuff in sauces and dressings.
Inside the company producing the most realistic fake eggs you’ll ever taste
Every time I read things like this (the 95% of eggs coming from battery-caged facilities), I cannot express how happy I am to not be supporting this industry in the slightest.
In either case, this startup sounds great. I’m excited to see this industry picking up steam every day.
