Plant-based meat company Beyond Meat showcased its latest product, Beyond Breakfast Sausage, a new plant-based breakfast sausage featuring 11 grams of protein per serving with 50% less total fat, 35% less saturated fat and sodium and 33% fewer calories than a leading brand of pork sausage patties. The product is made without GMOs, soy, gluten, or artificially produced ingredients.
“Our Beyond Breakfast Sausage platform delivers on our promise of enabling consumers to Eat What You Love™ while advancing health, environmental, and animal welfare benefits. It has seen early success at some of the most popular and iconic quick-service restaurants and we are excited to introduce the first extension of the platform in retail. It’s been a staple in my own household and I’m glad that families can now enjoy this delicious breakfast option at home while feeling great about nutritional wins like 50% less total fat, 35% less saturated fat and sodium and no cholesterol compared to a leading brand of pork sausage,” Ethan Brown, Beyond Meat founder and CEO said.
Beyond Breakfast Sausage has been available since April at select retailers including ACME, Albertsons, Key Foods, Kings, Pavilions, Raley’s, ShopRite, Vons, Wegmans, and Whole Foods Market with an MSRP of USD4.99 for six patties.
