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.
