Cracking the Egg

In this photo taken Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, with pictures of backers Bill Gates, left, and Tony Blair, right, in the background, research associate Camilla Hall measures a protein isolate at Hampton Creek Foods in San Francisco. Can plants replace eggs? A San Francisco startup backed by Bill Gates believes they can. Hampton Creek Foods is scouring the planet for plants that can replace chicken eggs in everything from cookies to omelets to French toast. Funded by prominent Silicon Valley investors, the upstart seeks to disrupt a global egg industry that backers say wastes energy, pollutes the environment, causes disease outbreaks and confines chickens to tiny spaces.
