The wait is finally over: the first ever vegan hard-boiled egg has hit the shelves!
This is the most eggshell-ent news a breakfast-loving vegan could dream of!
OsomeFood truly put in the work here, consulting nutritionists, dieticians, herbalists and naturopaths to achieve not only something delicious-tasting, but a product that would offer a nutrient-packed, whole food plant-based alternative for people who don’t want to compromise their health or beliefs for flavour.
Although this is not the first vegan egg on the market, OsomeFood founder Jason Fong claims his product is still a world first: his vegan egg is made from a variety of antioxidant-packed algae and from specially-fermented fungi that create mycoprotein, supplying the body with an extra high protein content and the essential amino acids usually only found in meat.
Their dedication to offering consumers food that is not “simply vegan” but “as nutritious as it gets” is what sets OsomeFood apart. Their mission is to make the switch to a plant-based diet easier and healthier for people who may find it difficult or worry about making the change.
Now, if this isn’t proof that technology is being harnessed for the good of the people and the world, then think again!
Each of OsomeFood’s hard-boiled delights uses 90% less land resources and water than a chicken egg, is totally GMO-free, gluten-free and goes through a “zero-contamination” process that ensures it is free from traces of heavy metals, hormones, pesticides and plastic.
Research shows that there is an unprecedented demand for egg alternatives, with competitor Eat Just’s “JUST Egg” selling the equivalent of over 100 million eggs in just 3 years!
Consumer demand always has and always will fuel supply, so let’s continue to make conscious changes in our diets and lives to spur on companies like OsomeFood to keep pushing boundaries to shape our world in a positive way.
