What Are WunderEggs?
We first heard about this new product in VegNews and were excited; there are lots of liquid egg products on the market like Just Egg but none that mimic a boiled egg.
We were anxious to know if it would live up to the hype. Could we finally make a vegan Cobb salad with eggs or even a potato salad? Would it really taste like an egg?

What Are Vegan Hard-Boiled Eggs Made Out Of?
Nuts and agar formulate the “whites” and nuts and turmeric create the the “yolk.” A black salt gives the eggy taste.
- Coconut Milk
- Agar (a seaweed based gelatin substitute)
- Konjac (commonly used as a substitute for animal gelatin in vegan items)
- Potato Protein
- Rosemary Extract
- Black Salt (Known as Kala Namak and Himalayan black salt. It contains sulfuric compounds that give it a strong eggy taste and smell perfect for egg substitutes like tofu scramble.
- Turmeric for color
Are Plant-Based Eggs Healthy Compared To Regular Eggs?
Yes, they are healthy. These vegan hard boiled eggs are pretty similar to regular eggs, nutritionally speaking. The primary differences are in carbohydrates and cholesterol levels. WunderEgg has no cholesterol but are higher in carbohydrates.

What Does WunderEggs Taste Like?
These “eggs” look just like a real chicken egg but without having to peel a shell off. The texture is also pretty much the same as a real egg.
The taste without the seasoning packet:
The egg white, has a hint of almond but has the texture of a hard boiled egg.
The yolk, has a noticeable but not overwhelming flavor of turmeric. The texture is really close to a hard boiled egg yolk and only slightly grainy.
Combined, it has the over all mouthfeel of a hard boiled egg.
The taste with the Black Salt packet:
With the black salt it definitely tastes more like a real boiled egg but there's still a slight aftertaste of turmeric coming from the yolk.
Depending on your dietary needs. Really the only drawback is the Black Salt. In our opinion this is really needed. And if your watching your sodium intake this could an issue for you. It’s pricey at $7.99 for what equals three vegan boiled eggs but we would definitely buy again; mostly under the category of a splurge.
