What is just egg?
JUST Egg is a plant based substitute made from mung beans. It acts as a binding ingredient, emulsifier, and leavening agent.
You can purchase JUST Egg products online or in the refrigerated section at most grocery stores. Check their online store locator, but I typically purchase JUST Egg at Sprouts, Whole Foods, Kroger, Target, or Walmart.
Their first and most popular product is JUST Egg plant based scramble, a vegan liquid egg replacer. The liquid transforms into a soft and fluffy scrambled eggs or an omelette before your eyes.
The brand has two other products, JUST Egg Folded and JUST Egg Sous Vide. JUST Egg Folded is an eggless patty that's perfect for breakfast tacos or sandwiches. Whereas, JUST Egg Sous Vide are bite-sized vegan egg muffins.
All of the products are made from plants, not chickens. They're dairy free, egg free, gluten free, cholesterol free, and free from artificial flavors. Of course, be sure to double check all packaging for allergens!
