Plant-based deli meat start-up Plantcraft has announced that its two new vegan pâtés are available in US retail via the Los Angeles organic grocery chain Erewhon.
With claims of being the first plant-based pâté on the commercial market, Plantcraft Pâté comes in both spicy and mild varieties.
The all-natural pâté alternatives are made from green banana flour, golden flax seeds, grapeseed oil, legume-based protein and natural flavourings such as onion, garlic and cayenne pepper.
The products are free from all the main allergens including nuts, gluten, soy, dairy, grains and eggs; as well as additives, preservatives and artificial ingredients.
According to Plantcraft, its new vegan offerings deliver the smooth, rich texture of traditional pâté and a smoky, savoury taste. The brand also claims its pâté alternatives are a good source of protein, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
“Erewhon is known for bringing Los Angeles the latest innovations in nutrient-rich, pure products that are ethically and sustainably sourced,” said Plantcraft co-founder, Kati Ohens.
“Their customers are aware of the impacts of their food choices and we believe they will appreciate that our pâté incorporates whole foods, not processed ingredients.”
