HOOD RIVER, Ore. — Tofurky, pioneer of mouthwatering plant-based proteins, will showcase Year-Round Ham Style Roast and its 2018 Holiday Feast Kit with a new and improved dessert option, Vegan Chocolate Espresso Cheesecake, at this year’s Natural Products Expo East. A 2018 NEXTY finalist in the Meat/Dairy Alternative category, Year-Round Ham Style Roast extends beyond holiday ham eating occasions, delivering a delicious reason to ham it up all year for the 43 million Americans eating plant-based foods. A decadent dairy-free dessert, new Vegan Chocolate Espresso Cheesecake joins Tofurky’s 2018 Holiday Feast Kit alongside a mouthwatering roast and gravy to complete the perfect meal. Attendees of Expo East are invited to booth #833 to indulge their taste-buds in the latest plant-based innovation.
“The plant-based movement is bigger than it’s ever been,” said Jaime Athos, CEO at Tofurky. “As a brand that started the movement more than 35 years ago, we’re excited to lead the charge in expanding options for everyone from vegans to flexitarians and all food lovers in between. Our new items offer an indulgent way for people to enjoy their favorite foods, but with delicious plant-based options.”
Year-Round Ham Style Roast touts a tender, smoky flavor and juicy texture comparable to real meat. Crafted in the kitchen like all great food should be, the year-round ham gives everyone a savory mouthwatering and high-protein option at 22 grams per serving. Year-Round Ham Style Roast creates a celebratory occasion any time of day, whether it’s dicing in a breakfast scramble, putting on a slice of pizza for lunch, or slicing and serving warm from the oven for dinner. Out of 700 people surveyed nationwide, these are the most popular ways people prefer to nosh on the plant-based protein:
- 53 percent would serve as a main course
- 50 percent would slice it on a sandwich
- 24 percent would drop it in a weeknight dinner
- 19 percent would eat it for breakfast
