Sprouts Farmers Market Launches New Plant-Based Burger Line
PHOENIX, AZ - The food industry has gone to great lengths to create the perfect plant-based burger, and Sprouts Farmers Market is now running head to head with some of the biggest players. The retailer recently launched its very own brand of vegan burgers, expanding its line of The Butcher Shop offerings with the addition of its new Plant Based Burger Patties.
“Sprouts shoppers are looking for products to meet their specific lifestyles and diets, and trust our stores to offer a wide assortment, including unique and innovative plant-based and vegan options,” said Culinary Director Matthew Pratta in a statement to ANUK. “Our private label and culinary teams developed the plant-based patties as a better-for-you option that has less saturated fat and calories than other similar products, in part due to the mushrooms added as a functional and nutritious ingredient.”
The innovative products are now available in Sprouts locations nationwide, bringing a brand-new offering to vegan and vegetarian consumers.
Found in the frozen meat section, these plant-based burgers come in a pack of two and are made from a blend of portobello mushrooms, pea protein, onion puree, and beets.
Retailers like Trader Joe's, Kroger, and Publix have been making moves in this sector, capitalizing on consumer demand for plant-based. As this demand for better-for-you products continues to grow, you can count on AndNowUKnow to keep you in the loop.
