Check out what aquafaba is being featured in now!
SFGate reports that Sir Kengsinton’s is releasing “Fabanaise,” a vegan eggless spread that features the bean water, this May. As if using it’s fluffy texture wasn’t genius enough, the New York team have paired with an Ithaca hummus producer to “rescue” around 50,000 pounds aquafaba in their first year of production. When vegan food, and the quest to end food waste combine, lookout.
Mark Ramadan, the co-founder and CEO of Sir Kensington’s, told NOSH: “Looking around in the vegan mayo category, the powdered soy and pea proteins and starches that are used as egg substitutes look more like a chemistry lab than a kitchen pantry. We wanted something that was closer to nature (and tasted better too).”
The protein-rich chickpea brine is combined with non-GMO sunflower oil to make a spread that will change everything from sandwiches to coleslaw. Sir Kensington’s will offer classic and chipotle flavoured mayos at $5.99-$9.99 a jar. We wonder if Hellman’s, having already pissed off most vegans with their Just Mayo attack and subsequent vegan line, is scared.
Sadly, Sir Kensington’s isn’t a vegan company, so we’d likely still reach for Hampton Creek first when given the option. Veganism setting trends for big business still means we get cool new, aquafaba filled, products though!
