New Vegetarian Chicken Products from Impossible Foods
California-based Impossible Foods is expanding its crispy, juicy chicken line with three new products: Impossible Spicy Chicken Nuggets, Impossible Spicy Chicken Patties and Impossible Chicken Tenders; all made from plants.
The nuggets and patties use a blend of custom spices that add kick to the crispy, juicy, tender bite of the brand’s original plant-based chicken recipe. The tenders feature a blend of spices in a larger, elongated shape for wraps, salad, and baskets.
All three products offer 10 to 12 grams of protein per serving and no cholesterol, as well as up to 35 percent less total fat and up to 55 percent less saturated fat compared to their animal counterparts. They also have a smaller environmental footprint, using 44 percent less water, 49 percent less land and 36 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
Impossible chicken nuggets for restaurants outperformed a leading brand of animal chicken nuggets three-to-one in a blind consumer test, and were ranked superior in flavor, texture and overall appearance. The products will be available in the frozen aisle at select retail locations starting this month, followed by national availability in the coming months.
