Eat Just has teamed up with Cuisine Solutions – a manufacturer of sous vide foods – for the launch of plant-based Just Egg Sous Vide bites in US retailers.
The launch forms part of an exclusive agreement between the two companies, whereby Cuisine Solutions will develop and produce Eat Just’s plant-based sous vide egg worldwide.
French for ‘under vacuum’, sous vide is a cooking method in which food is vacuum-sealed and slow-cooked in water at precise temperatures.
The Just Egg Sous Vide bites come in four flavours inspired by regional cuisines and whole plants: America (roasted potato, dill, chives, red bell pepper and black pepper); India (curry, broccoli, cauliflower, coconut milk and lemongrass); Japan (portobello mushrooms, yams, togarashi, soy and tamari); and Mexico (roasted poblanos, chipotle chilli powder, black beans, corn and lime).
Depending on the flavour, the bites contain between 9-13g of protein per serving. Made using mung bean protein, they are also free of cholesterol, non-GMO, dairy-free and contain no artificial flavours.
Just Egg’s bites join its vegan egg portfolio that includes a pourable liquid and pre-baked folded format. Earlier this month, the company introduced its plant-based egg patty alternative to the menu of Chinese fast-food chain, Dicos.
“The Cuisine Solutions team is the best in the world at what they do. We partnered with them because of their unparalleled expertise and leadership in the sous vide industry and their commitment to make our food system even better. We’re excited for consumers to taste what we’ve been working on,” said Josh Tetrick, co-founder and CEO of Eat Just.
Felipe Hasselmann, president and CEO of Cuisine Solutions, added: “Josh’s vision for the future of plant-based food is extremely inspirational and also very much aligned with Cuisine Solutions’ vision – both organisations seek to impact and revolutionise the food industry on a daily basis, which is what makes this such a natural partnership.
“We are extremely excited to start supplying customers with the best sous vide egg bites in the market made with the best plant-based eggs.”
Just Egg Sous Vide bites will roll out in March in the freezer section at select grocery stores.
