Beyond Meat is expanding its meatless offerings with its first-ever chicken tenders, now available at restaurants across the U.S.
The plant-based chicken tenders have a crunchy outside and a flavorful and juicy inside, sans the animal products. The company says the new product can be eaten in sandwiches, salads, tacos or on their own.
In a statement, Beyond Meat said that its meat-free counterpart scored comparably in consumer tests in overall flavor to animal-based chicken tenders. The tenders are crafted to look, cook and taste like traditional poultry products, and offer 14 grams of protein per serving.
The company first released a breakthrough plant-based chicken product in 2012 and has been an early pioneer in the plant-based chicken industry. The team says it has spent nearly a decade perfecting the Beyond Chicken Tenders.
Beyond Chicken Tenders will be available in hundreds of restaurants across the U.S. beginning July 8th.
