Until now the flax egg has been the closest vegan alternative to egg, as it is especially good at thickening baked goods. The frustrating part of the equation has been finding a liquid vegan egg with the flavor and texture of a real egg. Well, the wait is over thanks to Just Egg, a product that looks and tastes like egg but is 100% vegan.
San Francisco-based company JUST has just launched their latest vegan product: Just Egg. It is a liquid vegan egg that emulsifies when cooked. Unlike flax eggs, Just Egg looks and taste just like a scrambled chicken egg which allows it to be used in breakfast sandwiches, omelettes, and more.
Believe it or not, this liquid vegan egg is made from a protein found in mung beans, which have been a staple of Indian cuisine for thousands of years. The protein coagulates just like eggs and has a pleasant taste and texture, according to the company.
