Beyond Meat launches plant-based mince with more protein than beef in UK supermarkets

Read Time:   |  26th May 2021

Plant-based meat giants Beyond Meat have launched the long-awaited Beyond Mince at UK supermarket Tesco with a higher protein count than beef mince.

UK Vegans, the wait is over! Beyond Meat has launched Beyond mince in the frozen aisle at Tesco.

Beyond Mince is the latest Beyond Meat product to launch in the UK. With 15g of plant protein per 100g serving, this vegan alternative offers higher protein levels than beef mince per 100g.

In addition, the vegan mince is soy-free and gluten-free meaning the family can enjoy the new meat alternative.

We think Beyond Mince will be perfect in meat-free vegan tacos, or why not get creative and make some mouth-watering vegan kebabs.

Beyond Meat launched its vegan ‘ground beef’ variant in the US back in 2019.

Similar to Beyond Mince, Beyond Beef offers 25% less saturated fat than beef, with less than 6g per serving.

During the US launch, BM Founder and Cheif Executive officer said “We’ve had our eye on creating a product that enables consumers to enjoy all the benefits and versatility of ground beef, whilst tapping into the human health, environment, and animal welfare benefits of plant-based foods”

Brown ensured the company were “Thoughtful about ingredient choices that support everyday use by the whole family”

Beyond Meat in the UK

Over the years, BM has slowly become increasingly available in the UK. Restaurants such as Honest Burger, Pizza Hut, and Wetherspoons have collaborated with the plant-based brand to bring greater vegan options to their diners.

Beyond Mince will be the latest BM supermarket addition and joins the treasured Beyond Burger and the Beyond Sausage. Just in time for BBQ season too!

Moreover, BM announced earlier this year its plans for mass expansion across Europe, including products launching in 445 across the UK.

The rise of the company fills us with a lot of promise. With more plant-based options available and accessible for all, the transition to a vegan diet for many seems possible.
