The first time news broke out about a fast food chain offering menu items made with faux meat rather than real meat, the news was shocking and exciting. Now it seems it’s simply becoming the norm as yet another restaurant chain has announced that it will be adding plant-based meat to their menus.
Little Caesars, a national pizza chain, will soon be the first restaurant to sell a meat-free sausage, which was created by the company behind the plant-based Impossible Burger. The meat-free sausage is made of very similar ingredients to the company’s existing burger, and still relies on heme from soy plants for its meaty flavor. However, Impossible Foods says it’s removed the potato protein to give the sausage a more springy texture. Little Caesars has already started offering meat-free sausage as a pizza topping at 58 restaurants in the US.
If the initial pilot is successful, the sausage could be made available more widely by the end of the year.
For all of us, it may not be so spectacular that a pizza chain is selling plant-based meat, but it’s just another sign that the market for eco-friendly meat alternatives is on the up. READ MORE
