In den USA seit kurzem auf dem Markt: vegane Eier aus Pflanzen. Ich bin bei dem Thema ja durchaus schizo, ich liebe Burger und Fast Food und ein selbstgegrilltes Steak, bin mir aber den ethischen Problemen um die Tierhaltung und -tötung sehr bewusst. Wahrscheinlich mag ich die Idee deshalb so sehr und Eier aus Pflanzen bergen nochmal ganz neue kulinarische Möglichkeiten:

A radical ‘artificial egg’ backed by Paypal billionaire Peter Thiel and Bill Gates went on sale in US supermarkets for the first time on September 10, 2013. Made from plants, it can replace eggs in everything from cakes to mayonnaise – without a chicken ever coming close to the production process.

The team today started selling their ‘plant egg’, called Beyond Eggs, in Whole Foods in California – and say it could soon be available in supermarkets worldwide. 'We want to take animals out of the equation,’ said Josh Tetrick, the firm’s founder. ‘The food industry is begging for innovation, especially where animals are involved – it is a broken industry.’
