    First I think I will pass.
    Second, they are trying to sell something. They are not going to say well they are almost as good as a regular egg.
    Thirdly, pretty sure chickens and eggs are sustainable. They been around thousands if not hundreds of thousands of years. Sounds pretty sustainable to me. Seems like they didn't pay attention in biology that day. Pave over the world and then plants aren't so sustainable are they?
    Fourth are their ingredients non-gmo and all natural and or organic?

    I could go on and on but won't. Just can't tolerate someone telling me what is right in their mind and then recommend I think their way. Just can't do it.

    It could be beneficial to people who are allergic to eggs.

    That is true, but I won't be buying the new stuff... I'll stay with the original!

    Who can say? Not enough information into the making of these egg replacements. While I am sure it is proprietary but would like to know what is in it and how it is made. That way a better decision can be made whether it is actually sustainable.

    More sustainable? They have to plant, grow harvest, ship, process, extract .... the plants. Then they have to produce, make , ship.... the packaging. Next they have to make, package and send... the stuff out. Nevermind the laborers that drive back and forth to their jobs in all those steps mentioned above. A egg doesnt need fancy packaging and production.... just a chicken that does it all.

    Most people in this country don't get their eggs out of the backyard.

    That would be a very true statement but nor do they get them from a laboratory.
