AUSTIN, MINN. — Hormel Ingredient Solutions launched a new line of plant-based meat alternatives.
Powered by pea protein, the new offerings include an uncooked ground product and fully cooked crumbles in traditional Italian, breakfast and Chorizo-style flavors.
The uncooked ground product and traditional fully cooked crumbles feature hint of onion, natural smoke, crushed red pepper and garlic. The Italian-style fully cooked crumbles are imbued with notes of fennel, anise and black and red pepper and are suitable for use in pastas, soups and entrees.
The breakfast-style crumbles are seasoned with pepper and mild sage, and the Chorizo-style crumbles feature poblano peppers for a tangy hot pepper flavor.
