Hampton Creek Unveils Their New Plant-Based Egg
Hampton Creek, best known for their plant-based condiment product Just Mayo and Unilever’s (the parent company for Best Foods Mayonaise) attempt to sue away the competition, recently announced the launch of something that could quite literally change the world – Just Scramble, the new plant-based egg!
Made from mung beans, this vegan version of one of the most popular foods on earth is receiving phenomenal reviews from chefs and journalists alike. According to those who have tried Just Scramble, the taste and texture are spot on and will revolutionize the food industry.
Just looking at their product launch video made my mouth water. Unfortunately, though, the majority of the world will have to wait to try this incredible, edible, plant-based egg because the company is only making it available to Flore restaurant in San Francisco for the time being. WAAAHHHH! : (
Why The World Needs A Vegan Egg
Since eggs are a staple in most households, the positive impact of this product cannot be overstated. If this product is as realistic and delicious as it sounds, there will be no reason for anyone to consume animal-based eggs. Therefore, we can expect to see a reduction in water and grain waste as well as an end to the exploitation and abuse of egg-laying hens. In addition, land currently used to breed, confine, and raise these birds can be freed up and used to grow more food for humans around the world. And, because it’s plant-based, this mung bean wonder provides superior nutrition without any of the negatives associated with the consumption of traditional eggs, such as:
- Increased cholesterol levels
- Ingestion of genetically modified organisms
- Ingestion of unnecessary antibiotics
- Ingestion of toxic, weight-promoting growth hormones
