Plant-Based Shrimp Products

Nestlé Launches Vegan Egg and Shrimp Options Under Garden Gourmet

— October 11, 2021 — Lifestyle
Nestlé has announced the launch of vegan eggs and shrimp, expanding its range of plant-based offerings under its Garden Gourmet brand. According to the company, the two new products, named 'Garden Gourmet VEGGie' and 'Garden Gourmet Vrimp,' were developed by R&D experts at Nestlé Research in Switzerland.

Nestlé's new plant-based egg offering is made using soy protein and can be cooked just like traditional eggs or used as a baking ingredient alternative. Meanwhile, 'Garden Gourmet Vrimp' is made from a unique blend of seaweed, peas, and konjac root. Together, these ingredients offer customers a strong source of dietary fiber 'while mimicking the taste and texture of real shrimp.

“Our longstanding expertise in plants, protein, and nutritional sciences enabled our teams to develop these great innovations in under a year," said Stefan Palzer, Nestlé Chief's Technology Officer, who believes the new plant-based offerings represent some of the brand's finest meat-free alternatives.
