Gardein, part of Conagra Brands, is launching five new Gardein Soups, the first-ever line-up of soups featuring plant-based meat alternatives. With 100% vegan ingredients, the soups aim to be a cold-weather favorite for anyone seeking an alternative to traditional meat-based soups.
“For years Gardein has been providing delicious foods that deliver the taste of meat in a plant-based offering,” Tim Nangle, Conagra Brands’ vice president and general manager, Meals and Sides said. “With plant-based foods gaining broader acceptance, and with so many popular soups featuring meat on the market, extending Gardein into the soups category was a logical next step for the brand.”
Each soup’s protein source is plant-based and delivers 10-15 grams of protein per serving. Wholesome real vegetables and vegan broth bases highlight the ingredient list of each soup. As with all vegan offerings, the soups are also dairy- and egg-free. All five Gardein soups are both Non-GMO Project Verified and Vegan Action Certified. They contain no artificial preservatives or flavors, with 0mg of cholesterol.
The five flavors in the Gardein Soups collection include Plant-Based Chick’n Noodl’, Plant-Based Be’f & Vegetable, Plant-Based Saus’ge Gumbo, Plant-Based Chick’n & Rice, and Plant-Based Minestrone & Saus’ge.
Gardein Soups are available at grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide, as well as through e-commerce outlets. Each 15-oz. can with a suggested retail price of USD2.99.
