Tyson Foods has expanded its Raised & Rooted portfolio with the introduction of new ‘snackable’ Plant Based Bites.
Available in two varieties, the bites can be prepared in the oven or microwave and offer 8g of protein and 3g of fibre per serving. They are also said to contain 33% less saturated fat than USDA white meat chicken nuggets.
The new Sweet Barbecue Flavored Plant Based Bites are covered in a ‘sweet yet smoky’ sauce. Meanwhile, the Buffalo Style Plant Based Bites are seasoned with cayenne pepper to provide a tangy, spicy kick.
“Our new plant-based bites deliver the taste that will wow taste buds in a better-for-you alternative,” said David Ervin, vice president of marketing, Raised & Rooted.
“We are excited to continue to grow our offerings and provide people with the alternative protein options they seek for meal or snack time with beloved flavours.”
The new offerings are available across the US, priced at $4.99 per pack.
The launch follows the introduction of four new Raised & Rooted products – including plant-based burger patties, Bratwurst and Italian sausages, and ground – earlier this year.
