Chicken-free chicken (video) Featured

As more people are leaving meat off their plates, plant-based alternatives are popping up worldwide. The latest is a chicken free chicken from Sunfed Meats, a startup based in New Zealand.

Sunfed Meats aims at selling clean meats that taste exactly their counterparts … except for the fact that the product is entirely vegan.

On their website, Sunfed describes their products as such, “Sunfed meats are made from plant protein, they cook, feel and taste just like animal meat but are healthier, both for you and the planet.” Their chicken free chicken is soy free, gluten free, vegan, made from peas, and packed with protein, iron, and zinc.

In a video, entrepreneur - Shama Sukul-Lee reveals the ingredients as, "Mostly water, pea protein, vegetable powder, plant starch, maize starch and a little bit of natural yeast extract."

And apparently, people on the streets can’t tell it’s not actually chicken.

The product, which hit the shelves recently, is only available in New Zealand — Auckland, Hamilton, Palmerston North, and Wellington, to be specific — but they’re looking to expand.
