Portuguese researchers create 100% vegetable egg

Portuguese researchers have created a non-egg egg. The new, totally home-grown product has been created from soy and other plant extracts. Researcher Daniel Abegão of CFER -the Centre for Food Education and Research, based in Alcobaça in the Leiria district- said: “It allows the final consumer a more flexible, sustainable food source.”

Lusa stressed that the taste of scrambled ‘eggs’ was exactly as expected of ‘normal’ scrambled eggs. The research has taken five years – and Portugal’s non-egg egg is not yet on the market, but will be very soon. The non-egg egg is part of a CFER project dubbed ‘Plantalicious’.
