JUST Egg Featured on TIME’s 10 Smartest Sustainable Products of 2018 List!
Yesterday the publication released its 10 Smartest Sustainable Products of 2018 list, and another familiar (and vegan!) food product made the cut.
The list is introduced as follows:
“As eco-conscious consumers increasingly look for products that can help them reduce their carbon footprint and deal with other environmental hazards, inventors and manufacturers are responding in kind. Here’s a look at some of the smartest sustainable products of the year, from greener shoes to smarter thermostats.”
Number two on the list is JUST’s JUST Egg, with the description stating:
“The animal agriculture industry is responsible for around 15% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to a U.N. estimate, thanks to the immense resources required to raise and feed animals. The JUST Egg cuts down on those emissions with a vegan egg replacement product made from a plant called mung bean. Cooked right, it tastes pretty close to the real thing.”
“Just Scramble tastes like egg, is free of antibiotics and cholesterol, and its ingredients require less water and emit fewer carbon emissions than conventional eggs. The product, which has already won acclaim from notable chefs and food enthusiasts, is made from a 4,400-year-old legume called a mung bean that scrambles like an egg.”
