WILLMAR, MINN. – Jennie-O Turkey Store, a subsidiary of Hormel Foods Corp., is introducing Jennie-O Turkey Burger Blends, featuring a combination of turkey and plant-based proteins.
The burger patties blend white meat turkey, black beans, whole grain brown rice and pepitas. Each quarter-lb patty contains 170 calories, 15 grams of protein, 7 grams of fat and 5 grams of fiber.
"We know that people are becoming increasingly interested in adding more plant-focused foods to their diets,” said Ryan Moorlag, brand manager at Jennie-O. “Our new Turkey Burger Blends make it easy to marry plant-based ingredients with lean meats.”
Jennie-O Turkey Burger Blends contain four patties per package and will be sold in the freezer aisle at select retailers for a suggested retail price of $6.99 to $7.99. Product availability is expected to expand by the end of the year.
