Lika Plus®

A carefully formulated plant protein ingredient is changing the way America enjoys meat. Like Plus® is the perfect addition to ground beef, chicken and turkey, it perfectly preserves taste and texture, while drastically lowering calories, saturated fat, and cholesterol, often by more than 25%.

LIKA® Plus redefines the processed meat market. A Michigan State University study (2014) using 85/15 ground beef blended with 25% LIKA® Plus proved:

Over 30% reduction in fat

Comparable reductions in sat fat, cholesterol

• Lower sodium, calories, and carbohydrates

• Taste and texture were preferable

• More than tripled in shelf life

• Visually indistinguishable from 100% beef

Issues of supply availability and price stability distress the meat industry. LIKA® Plus resolves both issues. It blends well with any animal meat in any proportion, improving taste, texture and nutritional value. Critical to this opportunity, the USDA has approved LIKA® Plus as a replacement for Lean Fine Textured Beef. The annual domestic market exceeds 30 billion lbs.

You've never had meat like this.

But don't take our word for it, ask the experts:

Animal meats containing saturated fats and cholesterol have been linked to a higher risk of obesity, cardiovascular diseases, stroke, and colon cancer.

When ground beef was replaced up to 25% with Lika Plus® at Michigan State University, fat content was significantly reduced, while juiciness score was marked as highly as [100% beef] in a trained sensory evaluation. Taste, texture and bite were also virtually indistinguishable.
