AcreMade is an important step towards a future where plants take the lead, resetting the world’s expectations for satisfaction, affordability and sustainability.
MINNEAPOLIS, October 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — PURIS, an early and innovative pioneer in plant-based food systems, today announced the launch of its first consumer brand: AcreMade, a better plant-based egg. AcreMade ushers in a new era of plant-based eggs with delicious, easy-to-use, and nutritious products free of the nine major allergens, opening up a world of potential in plant-based nutrition. AcreMade has developed an egg substitute made from PURIS’ star ingredient, yellow peas, a nutritious, planet-friendly legume that satisfies hunger while fueling a regenerative food system. According to a recent analysis by Fact.MR, sales of vegan eggs are expected to reach a value of almost $3.3 billion by 2031, and AcreMade plans to support this growth using PURIS’ scale protein supply chain foundation.
A unique egg substitute for all your needs
AcreMade launches its Plant-Based Egg Substitute, a shelf-stable powder perfect for scrambling or baking. A game changer for breakfast scramblers, quiches and cookies, Substitute is available for purchase from AcreMade.com in a case of eight 4.9 oz bags (96 servings total) for $54.99. Additionally, AcreMade uses Upcycled Certified™ Pea Starch, a new certification that recognizes brands that use previously unused ingredients, reducing waste while improving sustainability metrics. AcreMade has a strong pipeline of innovations and will launch additional products in 2023 in frozen, chilled and shelf-stable formats that meet customer needs in retail, foodservice and ingredient applications.
Harness the power of pea protein
AcreMade is the only brand to use yellow peas as the primary source of protein in its plant-based egg product. Peas benefit every link in the food chain by strengthening soil health and opening up more possibilities in plant-based foods by requiring few resources to grow, while providing high nutritional content to consumers. Plus, AcreMade Eggs are nutritionally comparable to traditional eggs – AcreMade contains 5g of protein/serving and 0mg of cholesterol.
“We are thrilled to launch AcreMade as the first direct-to-consumer brand,” said Nicole Atchison, CEO of AcreMade and PURIS Holdings. “From seed to shelf, grower to finished product, PURIS has the capability, network and resources to uniquely improve the food journey and create products consumers love. AcreMade is another step towards healthier choices for people, practices that are safe for soil and animals, and a food supply ready to feed a growing planet.”
Whether you’re a plant-based home cook, allergic householder, ethical vegan, environmental steward, or simply plant curious, AcreMade is for you.
