Plant-based egg made by chickpeas, not chicks - cook or bake them like real eggs.

Peggs

Made by chickpeas, not chicks.

Meet Peggs: the vegan egg alternative made by chickpeas, not chicks that can be used for cooking & baking -- just like a real egg. We are on a mission to make food more sustainable, ethical, and healthy.

Peggs use ~90% less land, water, and energy to produce and contribute to ~50% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than traditional grocery eggs. Our powdered-egg uses chickpea, flax, potato, spices, and other plant ingredients that when combined with water look just like eggs. It can be used in both cooking and baking, just like a regular egg.

Peggs was born during the pandemic in my own kitchen: I love eggy foods and baked goods, but always feel guilty for consuming them. I'm passionate about sustainability and try to eat mostly plant-based for environmental reasons. I always wanted to go fully vegan, but never could because of eggs. There are hundreds of plant alternatives for other animal products (like milk and yogurt), but so few good, natural egg replacers.

Thus, I decided to experiment in my kitchen and try to develop my own alternative. Eventually, I landed on a recipe that I felt comfortable substituting for eggs. It had the same savory flavor and could be used in a variety of cuisines -- from quiches to cookies. I wanted to see if others would resonate with a vegan egg product , so I put it on social media, and I was overwhelmed by the enthusiasm I received. I realized there was a real need for a plant-based egg alternative: vegan used to be a minority, but now more and more people are conscious of the benefits. I hope Peggs can help us build a more ethical, sustainable future for food.

How are we different?

Peggs is one of the first plant-based egg options on the market that is versatile enough to work in cooking and baking, just like real eggs. It is also one f the first to use chickpea as its primary ingredient.

We want to create mission-driven food that is delicious, clean, and good for the environment. Compared to real eggs, Peggs need about 90% less land, water, and energy to produce. They also result in about half as many CO2 emissions.
