Last month, the veg world went bananas over the announcement that Follow Your Heart would be rolling out the VeganEgg — the first mass-produced substitute that can scramble, bake, and even create a quiche like the real thing.
As of yesterday, the VeganEgg is officially available online. Currently, it can be purchased via FoodFightGrocery.com, for $7.99.
For those who are new to the concept, the VeganEgg uses black salt, whole algal flour, and whole algal protein to replicate the taste and texture of real eggs. The product was a decade in the making, according to the Follow Your Heart folks.
The VeganEgg is also on its way to Amazon, a company spokesperson tells Latest Vegan News, so the uber-popular shopping site will have it for sale shortly. As far as brick and mortar retailers, “VeganEgg is available in the Follow Your Heart Café but not currently anywhere else. We hope that will be rolled out into more stores in the coming months.”
In the meantime, you can give your business to the awesome folks at Food Fight, a Portland, Ore.-based vegan store and online retailer.
