Raised & Rooted™ brand, Tyson Foods’ brand of plant protein products, is expanding its offerings with three new products to meet the increased demand for plant-based protein options. The new plant-based burger patties, Bratwurst and Italian sausages, and ground are available in the refrigerated section of grocery stores nationally.
“Our plant-based proteins deliver the same delicious flavors, in a better-for-you alternative, they are plants made meatier,” said David Ervin, vice president of marketing, Raised & Rooted. “We are excited to provide people with satisfying alternative protein options perfect for any occasion.”
Plants Made Meatier for Grilling Moments
While there are more plant-based options available for consumers today, few are made for those looking to fire up their grills. In a recent survey, nearly half of Americans noted a desire for more satisfying, plant-based options for the grill.
Raised & Rooted is delivering on those desires with the introduction of its plant-based burger patties and sausages. Made from pea protein, and soy free, the new refrigerated plant protein options are chef inspired, with the seasoning and texture to deliver a mouthwatering taste experience for meat and plant eaters alike.
With 17g – 21g of protein per serving, the patties and sausages provide an excellent source of protein with 75 percent less saturated fat than traditional options.
