If you eat processed food and you’re not a vegan, a decent portion of your diet probably comes from factory-farmed eggs. Sure, you may stick to cage-free eggs when you’re cooking omelets, but 95% of eggs in the U.S. come from battery-caged facilities where birds are packed body to body in impossibly small spaces.
A San Francisco startup wants to change that. It makes a plant-based egg substitute so believable that it’s about to sign two deals with Fortune 500 food companies that want to use the stuff in sauces and dressings.
Uh. How is eating fake egg better than eating cage egg? Why not just change the system?? Or, better yet, cook for once! Raise a backyard flock if you can and make a fresh, home made meal.
Besides, you’re going to put chickens out of a job.
putting chickens out of a job is the objective.
