Woolworths has recently introduced new Beyond Meat products in response to the Flexitarian trend.

The flexitarian diet has been on the rise gaining traction in many parts of the US in recent years. Scientists believe that if you adopt a flexitarian diet you will be combating climate change, reducing pollution and promoting food sustainability. 

In a statement by the retailer, the Beyond Meat plant-based burger and sausage are exclusive to Woolworths through its partnership with Infinite Foods, uses non-GMO ingredients, and delivers the meaty experience you crave without the compromise. 

They added that these delicious meat alternatives are made from a mixture of pea protein isolates, rice protein, mung bean protein, canola oil, coconut oil, and other ingredients like potato starch, apple extract, sunflower lecithin, and pomegranate powder with a range of vitamins and minerals and that they’re so quick and easy to prepare.

Below are recipes you can try using the Beyond Meat products.
