Evo launches World's first boiled egg made entirely from plants

EVO - an alternate protein start-up based in India & USA has launched the world's first 'Plant-based Boiled Egg’- which can be grilled, fried or pickled just like a chicken egg.

EVO’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 i.e., efficient resource use, cruelty, cholesterol & antibiotic abuse. 

"We believe that food you crave should taste delicious and provide enough nutrition. Which 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,” shared Kartik Dixit, CEO & Co-founder of EVO.

EVO eggs are packed with 100 percent 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 8 Gms of protein per 100 Gms, with one portion having 0 mg of cholesterol.

“How do we eliminate animals from the food chain? By creating affordable & accessible alternative protein sources that provide all the benefits of their animal counterpart without any compromise. Our EVO Boiled Eggs are just that- delicious & 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,” added Shraddha Bhansali, Co-Founder of EVO.  

EVO's Boiled Eggs come in 2 flavour variants- Original & Peri-Peri & 2 shape variants- Cubes & Patties.

EVO Boiled Egg Cubes, 300 grams (equal to 6 eggs), Flavour Option- Original or Peri Peri priced at INR 250. EVO Boiled Egg Patties, 360 grams (equal to 7.5 eggs), Flavour Option- Original or Peri Peri priced at INR 300.

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 & GMOfree, and there are no artificial colours, hydrogenated oils, or high fructose corn syrup. 

Founded by Shraddha Bhansali and Kartik Dixit in October 2019, Evo plans to create next-gen plant-based substitutes for animal products by leveraging the magic of indigenous Indian crops and cutting-edge technology.
