Personally, I don’t eat fake meat — mostly because I don’t like the taste and because it frequently contains lots of soy or gluten which I don’t eat! This article really peaked my attention though.
Betting Better Fake Chicken Meat Will Be As Good As The Real Thing
A new Maryland company is betting that its mixture of soy, pea powder, carrot fiber and gluten-free flour tastes a lot like real chicken. ‘Beyond Meat’ plans to expand into fake pork and ground beef next.
Beyond Meat, a new company based in Maryland, has come up with an alternative to chicken meat that it claims is a dead ringer for the real thing. And unlike other meat alternatives on the market, this one aims to be cheap as well as tasty.
“This is one of the cleanest proteins you can get,” he says. “You don’t have to worry about any of the additives that are being put into a chicken. It’s just a pure, simple product that comes from plants.”
Even though this New Fake Meat contains soy, it may be one that I might try. Since I am a flexitarian, I do eat real chicken occasionally, but knowing that this is healthy and good for you (and tastes good too!), I may make an exception to my “no soy” rule!!
The articles does go on to say that the product will be in Whole Foods soon.
Let me know if you try this new “meat”
