Food scientists invent egg substitute created from plants
NY Daily News:
Forget cage-free and free range eggs — these eggs are hen-free.
Hampton Creek Foods, a San Francisco-based food lab, has invented what is being called the world’s first plant-based egg substitute.
Beyond Eggs, which is made with 11 plants including sorghum, peas and beans, has been successfully used in baked goods and mayo. CEO Josh Tetrick told FoxNews.com that Tony Blair and Bill Gates “couldn’t tell the difference.”
Tetrick said some 1.8 trillion eggs are laid each year, but the majority come from less-than-savory places.
