Evo launches 'world’s first boiled egg, made entirely from plants
EVO – an alternate protein start-up based in India & USA – has unveiled what it claims to be the world’s first ‘plant-based boiled egg' that can be grilled, fried or pickled just like a chicken egg. The company's mission is to disrupt the chicken egg by creating a truly better egg, made from plants, which functions and tastes like an egg without any of the downsides, such as efficient resource use, cruelty, cholesterol and antibiotic abuse.
Founders Shraddha Bhansali and Kartik Dixit started EVO in October 2019 to create next-gen plant-based substitutes for animal products by leveraging the magic of indigenous Indian crops and cutting-edge technology. Their vision is to empower people to make better & conscious decisions without having to make any compromise.
EVO eggs are packed with 100% plant-based proteins which are easy to digest. The main ingredients in EVO’s boiled eggs are pea protein, rice protein and seaweed extract.
Not only do EVO eggs look, feel, and taste like boiled chicken egg whites, but they also have a similar nutritional profile. EVO’s Boiled Eggs have 8g of protein per 100g , with one portion having 0mg of cholesterol. EVO is highly versatile and can be consumed directly, grated to add to your favorite dishes, marinated in seasoning, sauteed, deep fried, used as a patty for your delicious dishes or cooked like a regular egg with exactly the same texture and taste!
“How do we eliminate animals from the food chain? By creating affordable and accessible alternative protein sources that provide all the benefits of their animal counterpart without any compromise," commented Shraddha Bhansali, Co-Founder of EVO. "Our EVO Boiled Eggs are just that – delicious and nutritious eggs without any of the nasties (cholesterol, antibiotics, cruelty, inefficient land use) at the price of organic eggs. A win for the customer, for the chicken and for the environment."
“We believe that food you crave should taste delicious and provide enough nutrition," added Kartik Dixit, CEO & Co-founder of EVO. "This is why we have boarded the superior ingredients, plant cells, and processing systems to get the best quality product with appropriate shelf life. I am very glad to introduce our EVO Boiled Egg – or, like to call it, ‘the better egg.'”
EVO, which will launch in the USA at the end of the year, is one of the only companies in the world which has reached price parity with multiple animal egg categories across geographies. Moreover, apart from being plant-based, EVO eggs are nut-free, dairy-free, gluten-free & GMO-free, and there are no artificial colours, hydrogenated oils, or high fructose corn syrup.
The brand will launch four different Boiled Egg SKUs for customers in Mumbai via its website. EVO will start deliveries in Mumbai from August 2022.They will be launching Delhi followed by Bangalore and other Tier 1 & 2 cities in the coming months. EVO Foods has recently partnered with Ginkgo Bio works, a leading horizontal platform for cell programming, to develop animal-free egg proteins to create ingredients for the most realistic plant-based eggs. The brand has received PETA India’s most innovative company award for 2021.
