For the first time in Asia, a 100 percent plant-based poached egg and egg yolk made in Singapore for suppliers, F&B businesses, restaurateurs, hotels, and distributors worldwide have become available.
On 25th April 2023, award-winning, plant-based food technology and innovation pioneer Float Foods announces the launch of its two latest products:
- OnlyEg TM Poached Eg
- OnlyEgTM Eg Yolk
Asia’s first plant-based poached egg and plant-based yolk debuts at the Food & Hotel Asia (FHA) exhibition at the Singapore Expo from 25-28 April 2023.
Developed with proprietary technology by Float Foods’ research and development team, OnlyEgTM offers a legume-based poached egg and yolk substitute.
OnlyEgTM Poached Eg offers the food industry an innovative solution to their plant-based menus so they can now serve a ready-to-heat, plant-based poached egg in minutes, simplifying operations for large café chains, hotel breakfast buffets, institutional caterers, and airlines.
OnlyEgTM Poached Eg addresses a need in vegan breakfast and brunch menus, expanding the serving possibilities from Poached Egs benedict, avocado toast, Turkish breakfast, Buddha bowls, kimchi fried rice, to pescatarian mentai ikura rice combinations and more.
OnlyEgTM Eg Yolk is among the very first plant-based yolks to be commercially available worldwide. Made with proprietary automated manufacturing technology developed by Float Foods enabling the scaling of production, OnlyEgTM Eg Yolk opens doors to new culinary possibilities and enables chefs looking to serve a broader variety of plant-based menu options.
OnlyEgTM Eg Yolk can replace egg yolks as an ingredient in Hollandaise sauce, Carbonara pasta, crème brulee or custard, as well as a glaze in baking, or served as a main ingredient in Korean bibimbap or Japanese kake gohan. Both products are suitable for vegans, vegetarians, those with egg allergies as well as health-conscious consumers who require alternatives to animal eggs.
OnlyEg TM’s Poached Eg & Eg Yolk are cholesterol-free, with over 50 percent less saturated fats than a chicken egg, and are a clean and nutritious source of protein and dietary fibre. Plant-based eggs are a sustainable solution created to address the environmental impact of egg production, which is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions in the food industry.
Unlike conventional eggs, OnlyEg TM’s Poached Eg and Eg Yolk require less land, water and feed to produce, which results in lowering the carbon footprint.
” We are thrilled to introduce OnlyEg TM ‘s Poached Eg and Eg Yolk, which are among the first plant-based whole egg available in Asia, at FHA Singapore,” says Vinita Choolani, Founder and CEO of Float Foods.
“Our mission is to provide sustainable and nutritious food options that are good for the planet and good for the people.”
“We believe that OnlyEg TM will revolutionize the alternative egg industry and offer a more sustainable and ethical alternative to conventional eggs. ”
OnlyEgTM Poached Eg will be launched on 26 April 2023, 10:30 am at the FHA APA Theatre, Singapore EXPO, at Food & Hotel Asia 2023 (FHA), the largest gathering of leading F&B manufacturers and emerging brands in a single platform attended by leading global suppliers, industry professionals.
OnlyEg is also presented during the exhibition at its booth located in Hall 3, 3B2-03. OnlyEgTM Poached Eg debuts commercially in Singapore at Little Farms Cafes from May 15, served as an Avocado Smash Egs Benedict.
