How We Make Meat From Plants

Our Ingredients

Protein, fat, minerals, carbohydrates, and water are the five building blocks of meat.

We source these building blocks directly from plants, to create delicious, mouthwatering plant-based meat.

Our Proteins

Pea • Mung Bean • Faba Bean • Brown Rice

By using a variety of plant proteins, our products deliver greater or equal levels of protein than their animal-based counterparts.

Our Fats

Cocoa Butter • Coconut Oil • Canola Oil

Our fats create juicy plant-based burgers, beef, and sausages that sizzle in the pan or on the grill. All with less saturated fat than their animal counterparts*.

Our Process

Our process is simple. We source the building blocks of meat directly from plants.

Using heating, cooling, and pressure, we create the fibrous texture of meat from plant-based proteins. Then, we mix in fats, minerals, fruit and vegetable-based colors, natural flavors, and carbohydrates to replicate the appearance, juiciness, and flavor of meat.

The result? Uncompromisingly delicious plant-based burgers, sausage, and beef, no sacrifice required.
