Food technology company Revyve said that it will launch a new egg-replacement ingredient for plant-based burgers at the upcoming IFT FIRST 2024 event in Chicago.

The ingredient is said to be the first clean, minimally processed egg alternative available on a broad commercial scale.

It mimics the performance of eggs without stealth starches, emulsifiers, unfamiliar binders and E-numbers without sacrificing the original texture and mouthfeel of eggs, said the company.

Revyve has created texturising ingredients derived from repurposed brewer’s yeast for enhancing the food experience.

Revyve CEO Cedric Verstraeten said: “The science-backed ingredients revyve has pioneered produce the sensory appeal that consumers want in burgers.

“Revyve delivers the meatiness and juicy firmness that cater to consumer appetites. These nutritious, wholesome ingredients are all-natural and non-GMO. There’s more to come in Q3 2024 when we release our gluten-free, allergen-free ingredients.”

The food technology company said that various parties are collaborating with it and reshaping products and developing new ones to align with emerging trends.

The egg replacer is designed for ease of use with conventional processing equipment and is said to meet all international regulatory standards.

With ample supply, manufacturers can confidently manage their production schedules and budgets, the food technology firm claimed.

Revyve chief technology officer and co-founder Edgar Suarez Garcia said: “Yeast has been the star of the show in beer brewing, winemaking and bread baking for millennia.

“At revyve, we have taken yeast functionality to the next level. Products manufactured with revyve single-ingredient yeast proteins take on true-to-form textures. Revyve offers exceptional heat-set gelling, binding and emulsification.

“Burgers retain water and oil at hot and cold temperatures; they brown and sizzle on the grill and hold their shape when flipped and sandwiched in a bun.”

The company offers plant-based ingredients to introduce authentic textures that help clean up product labels.

Revyve secured over $15m in funding from venture capital firms and industry majors such as Anheuser-Busch InBev and Royal Cosun.
