Tyson Foods has expanded its range of plant-based meat alternatives under its Raised & Rooted brand with four new products.
Available across the US, the new offerings aim to meet the increased demand for plant-based protein options that are suitable for cooking at-home on the grill.
The new products include plant-based burger patties, Bratwurst and Italian sausages, and ground.
Made from pea protein, the soy-free options contain between 17-21g of protein per serving. According to Tyson Foods, the new plant-based meat products contain 75% less saturated fat than traditional options.
“Our products are plants made meatier, and deliver the same delicious flavours, in a better-for-you alternative,” said David Ervin, vice president of marketing, Raised & Rooted.
The four new meat alternative products join the Raised & Rooted brand portfolio which includes nuggets, spicy nuggets and whole-grain tenders.
“We are excited about the momentum we’ve built over the past year, fuelled by our growth at retail, and our ability to continue to meet consumer’s demands,” added Ervin.
“Raised & Rooted was created to provide plant-based options for everyone, and our new products are the next step toward meeting that goal while remaining steadfast to our commitment to providing great tasting alternative options.”
The new products are available in grocery stores nationwide, retailing between $4.99 and $7.99 per package.
