It has happened. Vegan eggs are here in a real way!
Follow Your Heart®, makers of Vegenaise and non-dairy cheeses, will launch a vegan egg replacer called VeganEgg™ to the public available in late October. VeganEgg™ is entirely egg-free and maintains the functional properties of eggs, making scrambles, quiches, frittatas, as well as for use as a binding and leavening agent in baking.
From their own solar-powered production facility, to their vegan products, Follow Your Heart is a sustainable company that you can feel good about. Bob Goldberg, president and CEO says, “We have been working toward VeganEgg™ for over a decade now, and there were many challenges that we overcame before developing a products that could truly replace eggs.”
VeganEgg™ is non-GMO, vegan, and allergen free. Also a great source of fiber with 4g per serving, it contains fewer calories and has less fat than eggs.
VeganEgg™ will initially be available online through Amazon.com for $6.99-$7.99. Each 4oz package will produce the equivalent of a dozen eggs. The shelf life of VeganEgg™ is 6 months from date of manufacture.
To scramble VeganEgg™, you simply mix 1/2 cup of iced water (sans ice) with 2 level tbsp of VeganEgg™ and whisk or blend until smooth. Pour into sauté pan over medium-high heat and push with a spatula and scramble continuously until the product is firm.
This is an important and key development in plant-based food options and we are excited to see and taste what Follow Your Heart® has to offer.
