Paul Thind of Mysala Foods says his company can’t wait to get the product to market in its prepared meal formats. “This is very exciting for us,” he says. “I can’t believe how well this product works with our sauces. We will be rolling out fresh and frozen packages as well as deli-counter offerings within the next few weeks.”
Gardein has more protein per ounce than meat, but is low in fat. It’s also fortified with vitamins and minerals. Made from non-GMO soy protein, wheat gluten, carrot fiber and pea protein, the product is only available to manufacturers, restaurants and foodservice operators. Pre-cooked, it comes in a variety of familiar formats, including shredded and diced, in chicken and beef flavors. There are also breaded meatless chicken nuggets, strips and cutlets.
