Meat analogue maker THIS is bringing THIS isn’t Chicken Dark Soy & Garlic pieces to customers around the UK via a listing in Waitrose.
The product is aimed at ‘stir fry lovers’ and aims to provide Brits with a ‘fast, flavoursome and high protein meal solution’ during the pandemic.
THIS isn’t Chicken Dark Soy & Garlic (RRP £3.65) is made from pea and soya beans and contains 21g of protein per 100g. Further, it is a source of iron, is low in fat and salt, and contains 28% of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin B12.
Co-founder Andy Shovel said the latest offering can be used in a variety of ways, but is ‘aimed pretty squarely’ at stir-fry lovers. “Generally, the flavour of stir-fries comes from sauces, marinades and herbs whilst the protein is usually just the nutritional workhorse of the dish.
“We’re trying to put a stop to that with out new marinaded plant-based chicken pieces by adding a rich dark soy sauce and garlicky note to Asian-inspired dishes up and down the country, especially as more people are likely to be cooking at home.”
