New to Holland & Barrett high-street stores, Vegan Egg
New to Holland & Barrett high-street stores, Vegan Egg is a 100 per cent plant-based egg replacer made from algal, an ingredient derived from algae. Just one 114g box makes the equivalent of a dozen eggs, making it a tasty alternative for cakes, scrambled eggs and omelettes.
Proving you can have all your egg benefits in one basket, the egg substitute contains 4.4 grams of fibre per serving and is suitable for those following vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free diets. As algal flour contains naturally high lipids and micronutrients, the egg replacer is also nutrient-dense and contains all essential amino acids.
Holland & Barrett’s Carl Copson says: ‘Vegan Egg has been specially developed to ensure that vegans can enjoy the versatility that eggs can add to meal planning and, because they contain algae, they can help to ensure you meet your fibre and essential amino acid needs without compromising a vegan diet.’
