A Nutritionist's Opinion on Plant-Based Eggs' Taste and Nutrition

Alternative vegetarian proteins are increasing rapidly.

Plant-based chicken tenders, sausage patties, and beef jerky are appearing rapidly in supermarket stores.

I initially declined an invitation to test plant-based eggs. I was doubtful that synthetic eggs could be fluffy and chewy like genuine eggs, like many non-vegans.

In addition, eggs are healthy. I know their many nutritional benefits as a dietitian.

Despite my qualms, hearing foodies rave about their animal-product-free omelets and scrambles made me interested.

I learnt how eggless eggs compare to regular eggs in cooking and baking, as well as their health benefits.

Though they may seem new, egg-free eggs have been around for a while. Each variety has its unique ingredients.
