New ‘food-tech’ startup aims to find substitute for eggs

Melbourne, December 9: A new food technology start-up plans to find a substitute for eggs.

The ‘Hampton Creek Foods’ is looking for plants that can replace chicken eggs in all recipes and has already launched its first product, which is an egg-free mayonnaise, now sold at Whole Foods Markets, reported.

The San Francisco startup backed by Bill Gates said that they are looking for a replacement as the egg industry pollutes the environment, causes disease outbreaks and confines chickens to tiny spaces. (ANI)
