Eat Just, the San Fran plant-based pioneer, has teamed up with Cuisine Solutions, a major manufacturer and distributor of sous vide foods, to launch JUST Egg Sous Vide bites in grocery stories.
The introduction of JUST Egg Sous Vide is the result of a unique product development and manufacturing partnership between Eat Just and Cuisine Solutions.
Under an exclusive agreement, Cuisine Solutions will develop and produce Eat Just’s plant-based sous vide egg around the globe. 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 product, which will begin rolling out in March in the freezer section of select grocery stores, comes in four unique and distinct flavours inspired by regional cuisines and whole plants.
Flavours include America; India; and Mexico.
The bites will be sold as a box of four that can be heated in a conventional oven, toaster oven or microwave, and as with other JUST Egg formats, the key ingredient is mung bean protein.
The product is free of cholesterol and has as much protein or more protein as many animal proteins (9-13g per serving depending on the flavour).
It is non-GMO, egg-free, dairy-free and has no artificial flavours. Additionally, its ingredients use less water and land and emit less CO2e than animal sources.
