A new vegan alternative to chicken eggs will soon be on our shelves. American company Eat Just has just received approval from the European Commission for its mung bean protein, the main ingredient of its “JUST Egg” products. This protein was first approved last October by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), who declared it “safe” under new dietary requirements. In concrete terms, this second green light paves the way for a European launch of JUST Egg products in the fourth quarter of 2022.
The JUST Egg brand is growing rapidly in the United States and has developed amazing chicken egg alternatives using mung bean protein. The product “JUST Egg” is in liquid, yellow form and can be cooked in omelette or scrambled egg style. It is 100% vegan, non-GMO and free of artificial flavors. The brand also offers the “JUST Egg folded”, which are similar to squares of vegan omelettes, and the “JUST Egg sous vide”, which this time are flavored and spicy round discs.
For now, the brand is being marketed in the United States, Canada, Singapore, South Korea, South Africa, Hong Kong and China. Last month, the company Eat Just announced that it has started construction of the largest plant-based protein factory in Singapore.
