EL SEGUNDO, CALIF. — Beyond Meat, Inc. is bolstering its portfolio of plant-based meat alternatives with new Beyond Breakfast Sausage Links.
Featuring a blend of savory herbs and spices with pea and rice protein, the links are designed to deliver the same taste and texture as pork-based links with 40% less sodium, the company said. The products contain no GMOs, bioengineered ingredients, synthetic colors, hormones, antibiotics or cholesterol. Each two-piece serving contains 130 calories, 9 grams of fat and 8 grams of plant-based protein.
“With demand for plant-based breakfast options continuing to rise and more of us eating breakfast at home, we knew the segment was ripe for innovation,” said Stuart Kronauge, chief marketing officer for Beyond Meat. “With the launch of Beyond Breakfast Sausage Links, we’re thrilled to introduce another better-for-you plant-based meat option to satisfy consumers’ love of classic breakfast dishes. We think our fans will be excited that they can make restaurant-style breakfast an at-home staple with our new links.”
Beyond Breakfast Sausage Links are Beyond Meat’s fourth new retail product of 2020 following the launch of Beyond Meatballs in September, Cookout Classic in June and Beyond Breakfast Sausage Patties in March.
The plant-based links are available nationwide and retail for $5.99 per 8-link package.
