Eggs, in their many forms, are part of our daily food landscape. Whether enjoyed after cooking them on their own, combined with other ingredients or incorporated into dishes to add consistency and flavour, they are also particularly beneficial from a nutritional standpoint. In addition to being a source of vitamins and minerals, they are also very rich in protein, supplying essential amino acids to the human body (which the body cannot synthesise itself).
These characteristics are all the more important to vegetarians, who need to find substitutes for the nutrients that omnivorous people get from eating meat. As a result, dishes containing eggs or egg products provide them with a portion of those dietary needs that are essential to good health.
67% of consumers worldwide say they prefer to eat simple foods. Cocotine’s products, which are developed to be as healthy as they are delicious, satisfy this desire for innovative simplicity in recipes as well as consumer interest in transparency with regard to production methods.
Designed with fast food and institutional chefs in mind, our products simplify their daily routines and are suited to a multitude of different uses.
