GOOD NEWS FOR BARBECUE FANS

Good news for barbecue fans who want to put some vegan treats on the grill this year: Nestlé is launching plant-based sausages in Europe and the United States that look, taste and cook like a sausage should.

In Europe, the soy-based Garden Gourmet Incredible Sausage will be available in Bratwurst and Chorizo styles. It will launch for retail starting in March in 11 European markets, including Austria, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland. Soon after, the version for restaurants and foodservice will be available to out-of-home customers.

Garden Gourmet is putting the ‘incredible’ into plant-based sausages with carefully chosen ingredients including soy, beetroot, carrots, peppers, and rapeseed and coconut oils. With 13 grams of plant-based protein, no cholesterol, and around 40% less fat than a sausage made of pork, the Garden Gourmet Incredible Sausage scores a ‘B’ rating on the Nutri-score front of the pack labeling system.

The Garden Gourmet and Sweet Earth sausages have a lower environmental impact that a sausage made with meat. For example, the Garden Gourmet Incredible Sausage has soy as its main ingredient. Compared to a pork-based sausage, a soy-based sausage can account for roughly 90 percent less CO2, 90 percent less water and 80 percent less land use. The packaging for the Garden Gourmet Incredible Sausage has also been designed to be fully recyclable, says Nestlé.
