Our feel-good plant protein ingredients blend seamlessly into ground meat products, enabling our customers to enhance taste while improving both nutrition and sustainability, all in a cost-competitive way.
Whether you're producing meatballs, sausages, chicken nuggets, chicken patties, burgers, or other ground meats, boosting your products with The Better Meat Co.’s plant proteins is a real win-win.
From sausages and burritos to lasagna and shepherd’s pie, we help make your meat better. In the above photos, we’ve boosted each application with a one-third blend of our plant proteins, enhancing taste, nutrition, and sustainability.
Albina 100, is an all-natural, plant protein formula that seamlessly blends at one-third minimum ratio into ground pork products like sausages, meatballs, chorizo, dumplings, and more. Albina 100 indistinguishably mimics ground pork at cost-competitive prices, all while making better food: better for the consumer and the planet. In fact, blending Albina 100 at a one-third ratio into ground pork maintains similar protein levels while reducing saturated fat and cholesterol by 30 percent each, and total calories by 12 percent.
Thunderbird 100 is similar to Albina 100 in its nutrition and sustainability benefits, except it’s specifically formulated to blend with ground chicken. It seamlessly blends at a one-third minimum ratio into nuggets, patties, and more.
Damona 100 is our beef-specific enhancer which blends well at a one-third minimum ratio in applications such as burgers, meatballs and taco meat. In the case of burgers, Damona takes mushroom-blending to the next level, boosting umami flavor while preventing shrinkage and roughly maintaining protein levels. Damona works well at even higher percentages in applications such as chili and other hearty soups.
In addition to Albina, Thunderbird, and Damona, we also have custom formulations we’ve created for specific customers’ needs, and we’re eager to work with you to ensure you have the perfect plant protein formulation for your product. Just let us know what you need and we’ll work with you to create it!
