A brand-new range of flexitarian products, named Lean & Greens, which combines lean British meat with super green plants has been launched in Tesco.
The range consists of burgers, meatballs and sausages paired with a mix of vegetables, grains and pulses including quinoa, kale, spinach, chickpeas, butternut squash, red kidney and cannellini beans.
The core range of six products includes: “The Original” turkey and plant patties, “The Mediterranean” chicken and plant patties, “The Italian” chicken and plant meatballs, “The Moroccan” venison and plant meatballs, “The Mexican” chicken and plant sausages and “The American” turkey and plant sausages.
Each product in the range is high in protein, a source of fibre, has less than 5% fat and is low in calories.
Euan Ross, sales and marketing manager at Lean & Greens, commented: “We balance lean British meat with what we like to call super greens plant protein and do so by combining bold flavours from around the world to create products that offer a fantastic alternative to a completely plant or meat-centred item.”
He continued: “It’s a great 50/50 option for those looking to reduce their meat consumption and boost veg intake in one go. We can’t wait to see the range hit the shelves of Tesco from 20th September with so many varied flavour profiles to enjoy.”
The products are available now in 319 Tesco stores across the UK and RRP at £2.50.
