Soy helps provide our product with a juicy bite and is a protein-packed legume with a low water footprint compared to animal-based protein and according to Stanford-educated PhD geneticist and cancer researcher, Dr. Chana Davis, “Soy is the highest quality plant-based protein source thanks to its balanced mixture of essential amino acids and its digestibility.” In addition, because we’re selling products to schools that are a part of the National School Lunch Program, serving products made with soy protein allows schools to credit our nuggets, patties, and strips as a Meat/Meat Alternate, enabling us to offer healthy plant-based options to American school children. Our nuggets are made with non-GMO soy beans.
