How do we make eggs from plants?

Eggs are one of the most common foods on the planet, spanning cultures and cuisines, distance and language.

We eat 1.4 trillion chicken eggs per year, using 93 million acres of land and 51 billion gallons of water in the process.

JUST Egg started with a simple question.

Could we make really delicious eggs from plants?

Yes. And, in the process, we made eggs that are better for the planet, too.

We searched nearly 400,000 species of beans, grains and plants to find one that would magically scramble just like an egg.

We found our answer in an unlikely place.

A 4,400-year-old legume called the mung bean.

Asian, Middle Eastern and South Asian cultures have cooked with mung beans for millennia. This very old bean, it turns out, makes very good eggs.

The mung bean is also one of the most sustainable plants on earth, using significantly fewer resources to grow and cultivate than do chicken eggs. So that’s a really nice bonus, too.

It scrambles like an egg, fluffs like an egg and, honestly, it tastes even better than a chicken egg.

Factory farms take an incredible toll on our planet, on animals, and on ourselves. It doesn’t have to be this way. Our eggs are delicious and — bonus! — they might just unf*ck our planet.

JUST Egg uses

0%less water

It takes 53 gallons of water to produce a single chicken egg. It’s not because of thirsty chickens; it’s because of the water that goes into growing so much feed. By making JUST Egg directly from plants, we use 98 percent less water.

0%less land

More than three-quarters of the world’s farmable land goes to animal agriculture, yet it produces just 18 percent of our calories. By making JUST Egg directly from plants, we use 86 percent less land.

We’ve now sold the equivalent of more than 160 million eggs, and every one of those scrambles, omelets and quiches have a real impact. By making JUST Egg from plants, we’ve saved over 23 million kgs of CO2e, 9,400 acres of land and 5.8 billion gallons of water.That’s nearly 9,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools, a larger area than some island nations or the equivalent of taking more than 5,000 cars off the road.

Yes they’re made from plants, and that helps the planet. And we care about that a lot, but, honestly, you don’t have to. JUST Egg is healthier for us, too. By making JUST Egg directly from plants, they’re cholesterol-free, have less saturated fat and the same amount of protein.

End

Yo, chicken eggs, we got it from here.

The factory farming industry is very worried about how much you’ll like our eggs. And with more than 160 million eggs already sold, they should be.
