Papondu, the vegetable alternative that replaces the egg in your recipes
The idea for Papondu was born in 2017, when Philippine and Sheryline, two engineer biologists, asked people who adopted a vegan diet what they lacked. The answer was clear: it's the eggs! They have also become aware of the number of people who are intolerant or allergic to eggs and have taken on the challenge of developing a plant-based egg substitute.
