💭 What is Eggcellent?
Eggcellent is a plant-based seasoning mix, used to replicate the flavor of eggs without having to use actual eggs. It adds a savory taste to foods, such as popcorn, salad, faux quiche, pasta, pizza, and more! The signature dish for Eggcellent is Tofu Scramble, a homemade vegan scrambled egg alternative made with tofu. YesMilady! (the brand that produces this seasoning mix) is based and made in the USA.
🍳 What can it do?
Eggcellent seasons a variety of savory foods, to replicate egg-y flavors. It brings out the natural flavors of your vegan meals while also adding even more flavors!
🧂 What's in it?
The product uses natural ingredients and contains no artificial colors or preservatives. It is gluten-free and free from MSG and GMOs. The base of Eggcellent is fortified nutritional yeast, meaning it has loooots of B vitamins, such as B2, B3, B12, and B6! In addition, it contains folic acid, cyanocobalamin (B12), kala namak, onion, garlic, turmeric, and canola oil.
Since this is a plant-based product it is cholesterol free, and a great option for not only vegans but people that try to lower their cholesterol intake.
🍲 A great source of vitamin B12
Eggcellent is bursting with B vitamins, but most importantly it contains B12. Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin to look out for in your diet. It can take years for deficiency symptoms to develop and can be devastating. So it is important to keep an eye out for it!
A common misbelief is that vitamin B12 is only in animal products. However, B12 is not made by plants or animals. In fact, it is microbes that blanket the earth and so we used to get lots of B12 through our water. In today’s modern world, the water supply is commonly chlorinated to kill off any bacteria. So, while we don’t get much B12 in the water anymore, we don’t get much cholera, either, which is a good thing!
With 170% of your recommended daily value of vitamin B12 per serving (2tsp/5g), Eggcellent is a great plant-based addition to your diet. This being said, Eggcellent should not be your only source of vitamin B12.
In addition, the vitamin B12 in Eggcellent is easier to absorb for your body, than with animal products. And it is particularly great for people taking heartburn and/or acid reflux medication!
👩🏽🍳 Easy and quick to use
What I love about Eggcellent, is that it is an easy and quick-to-use seasoning mix. Perfect for anyone who doesn’t want a lot of fuss in the kitchen, preparing and seasoning meals from scratch. For example, when I make tofu scramble with it, the tofu absorbs all the delicious flavors quickly and easily.
🌱 Certified vegan by vegan.org
Eggcellent has the vegan.org certification which is helpful seal shopping for groceries. It is a helpful seal for those who are still transitioning to a plant-based diet, and for those who need/want quick certainty that the product they are buying is vegan.
🐥 Support animal sanctuaries with Eggcellent
Yes Milady! supports the vegan community with more than just a delicious plant-based product. They donate 10% of their profits to farm animal sanctuaries, which I think is just awesome! With Eggcellent you definitely have peace of mind that your purchase does not harm any animals but also promotes a good cause in the vegan and animal rights community.
Eggcellent offers a great egg-y flavor profile while providing you with essential B vitamins! Since it is so potent, you do not need to add a lot of it to your foods making it long-lasting.
The only negatives I could see in this product are that it is higher in sodium and has canola oil added while being in plastic packaging. But aside from that, it is a fabulous vegan egg replacer and seasoning mix, that can be a great addition to your plant-based kitchen.
