MingsBingstm and JUST Eggtm Launch Four New Plant-Based Breakfast Bing Pockets


Convenient and delicious handheld pockets are the first breakfast offering from Iron Chef Ming Tsai's line of modern Asian street food

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of World Egg Day on October 14, Chef Ming Tsai and JUST Eggtm, one of America's fastest-growing egg brands made entirely of plants, announced the launch of four new plant-based breakfast bings from Chef Tsai's frozen food line, MingsBings, that will help make the first meal of the day more delicious and convenient. The breakfast bings, developed by Iron Chef Ming Tsai, represent his brand's first entry into the breakfast category. Each flavor features JUST Egg alongside other plant-based ingredients to create mouth-watering breakfast offerings that are vegan and made without gluten or nuts.

Available online at MingsBings.com starting on Friday, October 14, the breakfast bings will begin rolling out to U.S. grocery stores in November, starting with Harris Teeter, Dave's Fresh Marketplace, Lowes Foods and Roche Bros. The four gluten-free flavors include:

The frozen breakfast category is on the rise, and the new breakfast bings help to address consumer demands for better and more convenient options. According to IRI data1, in 2021, frozen breakfast food sales were up 11% compared to the prior year, and more specifically, the breakfast burrito and sandwich category grew 16% in the last year2, demonstrating that consumers are looking for handheld options for breakfast. Affirming these findings, IRI also found that more than half of consumers reported they do not sit down to eat a traditional breakfast in the morning, making convenient options that can be eaten on the go, like MingsBings, an even more appealing option.

"Sodium-packed and high cholesterol breakfast sandwiches have dominated the breakfast category. The arrival of delicious plant-based ingredients like JUST Egg serve as a foundation for innovation. I've created MingsBings Breakfast Bings, an extension to our core lineup of bings, to introduce a new breakfast format that is first and foremost delicious and portable, but also plant-based, gluten-free, and dairy-free. This means no cholesterol, less calories, less fat and carbs, and a lower environmental impact for every consumer," Chef Ming Tsai said.

"Teaming up with a creative and dynamic partner like MingsBings for the new Breakfast Bings demonstrates yet again the incredible versatility of JUST Egg," said Matt Riley, Chief Revenue Officer for Eat Just, Inc., creator of JUST Egg. "We're barely scratching the surface of all the ways JUST Egg can be utilized in frozen and prepared foods as an alternative to chicken eggs that deliver on taste and functionality but with a minimal impact on the environment and the added benefit of lower saturated fat and no cholesterol."

MingsBings Breakfast Bings will be available on mingsbings.com on October 14 for $74.99 (12-pack) and $119.99 (24-pack), and will be rolling out in-stores for $6.99 MSRP (2-pack). As part of the launch of the breakfast bings, JUST Egg and Chef Ming Tsai will be sampling the bings on Friday, October 14 from 1-5 p.m. at Food Network's New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One the Grand Tasting at Pier 76.
