NEW YORK — The Meatless Farm Co. is delving into a new daypart with the debut of plant-based breakfast sausage links and patties.
Made with pea and rice protein and colored with beetroot, radish and tomato, both sausage varieties are vegan, soy-free, gluten-free, made with non-GMO ingredients and certified kosher. Each two-patty serving of the breakfast patties contains 220 calories, 20 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber, while a five-link serving of the breakfast sausage links contains 280 calories, 17 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber.
“Over the years, we have seen plenty of innovation within the plant-based protein space, but breakfast meats have remained relatively untouched,” said Kasper Vesth, general manager for North America at The Meatless Farm Co. “After years of R&D, we are excited to show people how easy — and delicious — it can be to add a perfect plant-based protein to their meatless mornings. As we continue to grow in the US market, it is important for us to ensure we’re meeting the unique needs of American consumers by making it easy to incorporate more plant-based options into their daily routines, whether it’s for their health or for the health of the environment.”
The Meatless Farm Co.’s plant-based breakfast sausage links come in 10-oz packages of 12 links, and the patties come in 8.46-oz packages of 4 patties. The products are available now in the refrigerated section of Whole Foods Markets stores nationwide, and the company said it plans to roll out to additional retailers and foodservice partners.
