Freeing the Chickens – Creating Egg Products that are Healthier and More Ethical
Rocky Shepheard loved eggs but when he found out that eggs can have potential health risks, and compounding that with the treatment of chickens in farms, he decided to create an alternative that he could still enjoy in his plant-based diet. The company has come a long way since then, and is even under new management, but they’re still creating the all natural egg substitute products that customers have enjoyed and loved since 2012.
All that Egg Taste without the Egg – What’s in The Vegg
The Vegg is created all 100% vegan ingredients to mimic the taste and texture of a real egg. It contains no genetically modified ingredients although it can’t be certified allergen free since it is manufactured in a facility that also handles wheat, eggs, milk, soy, fish, shellfish, sesame and tree nuts. The products are a base of fortified nutritional yeast flakes and, while they won’t replace the functional properties of eggs in baking recipes, you can still eat The Vegg as you would eggs.
Vegan and Kosher Egg Products that are Give Back to the Animals
The Vegg is certified Kosher and vegan which means that it is safe and easy to add to any plant-based or specialty diet. The company has also made a commitment to further protect animals, besides the chickens that they hope they’re saving with their products, by donating 10% of their net sales to some of the nation’s best animal protection charities. They hope to help all animals and keep their products 100% cruelty free.
