NPR Program Features Hampton Creek’s Beyond Eggs

The health and environmental benefits of plant-based alternatives such as Beyond Eggs are discussed on All Things Considered.

Hampton Creek’s egg alternative Beyond Eggs was recently featured on National Public Radio’s news program All Things Considered. The news source noted that Beyond Eggs’ renowned backer, billionaire Bill Gates, sees merit in plant-based products due to the animal industry’s notorious toll on the environment. Food scientists who were interviewed said that an egg replacement is not a novel concept, but plant-based alternatives are becoming increasingly popular among consumers. According to NPR, one reason for the appeal of foods such as Beyond Eggs is safety—people don’t have to worry about wide-spread food borne illnesses, such as salmonella that come with real eggs. NPR has posted the story on their website along with a video that shows scrambled eggs being made with Beyond Eggs.
