Introducing Beyond Beef®: The Versatility of Beef Without the Baggage!
March 5, 2019
Today we are debuting our latest breakthrough in plant-based food innovation: Beyond Beef®.
Beyond Meat just launched a plant-based product for beef lovers https://t.co/KPugg1hxyF
— Fast Company (@FastCompany) March 5, 2019
Driven by consumer demand, this breakthrough product has all of the meaty taste, juicy texture, and versatility consumers expect with ground beef, but with the added benefits of plant-based meat:
- 25% less saturated fat than beef, with less than 6g per serving
- Complete source of protein, with 20g/per 4oz. serving--- more than beef!
- No soy, no gluten, no GMOS
Beyond Beef works in nearly any recipe--from tacos and dumplings to bolognese and sliders, this mouthwatering ingredient is a MUST in any kitchen.
Looking to take a bite out of the multi-trillion-dollar meat industry, Beyond Beef aims to replicate ground beef, the largest segment in the beef category. Nearly two-thirds of Americans are trying to reduce their meat intake, signaling the meat industry is ripe for innovation.
To bring Beyond Beef to life, our innovation team used a unique combination of pea, mung bean and rice proteins that provides a meatier texture that mimics the chew and juiciness of ground beef. By unlocking a process that recreates the basic structure, and thus texture, of meat using only plant-based ingredients, we’re able to ensure that every bite of Beyond Beef is a delicious and meaty mouthful. Even better, this complete protein source is free of gluten, soy and GMOs, making it a kitchen staple.
