Hemp can be a culinary delight and peas consumed as drink.

A startup from Hamburg has recently walked away with a PETA award for its egg-substitute from protein-rich, high-fibre sweet lupins.

With its egg-like taste and structure, the liquid product innovation qualified for both sweet and hearty fare.

Alongside water and sweet lupin flour, the product is made up of sunflower oil, sodium citrate, gellan, yeast and mixed herbs, and contains 50% fewer calories than traditional eggs.

Since sweet lupins are not only cultivated in Germany and neighbouring countries, but can also self-fertilise due to their high nitrogen content, production uses 91.7% less CO2.

Quite eggs-treme. Here’s an alternative from California. Vegan ice cream, anyone?
