Anne Larkins is a graduate from London's Central Saint Martins and she challenges ethical food production by offering up a plant-based egg alternative.
The product has somewhat of an odd shape and the project is entitled 'An Egg Without a Chicken.' The conceptual endeavor explores material use and searches for liberation from biological capabilities — in this case, it is the necessity of a hen to produce an egg.
The egg alternative was presented during Dutch Design Week — October 19th to October 27th. The central ingredient of Anne Larkins' plant-based product is pea protein isolate. To supplement taste gaps, the designer applied Kala Namak salt, as well as alginate, which is an acid derived from algae. In addition to sharing the flavor of its inspiration, the egg alternative also replicates the nutritional values.
