Food company +Plant has launched a chicken nugget made of 50-per-cent chicken and 50-per-cent plant protein.
The hybrid chicken nuggets are gluten-free, additive-free, and carry a four-star health rating.
+Plant is part of The Positively Good Co, which aims to “bridge the gap and be the gateway” for people wanting to consume less meat and more plants. Other hybrid meat products in its range include Beef +Plant Meatballs, Lamb +Plant Meatballs and Chicken +Plant Tenders.
Todd Robertson, founder of +Plant, says the hybrid chicken nuggets were created with the fussy eater in mind, giving it the same taste and texture as regular chicken nuggets but with the added benefit of vegetables.
“My son was a great inspiration for the chicken nuggets because he is a fussy eater and loves his nuggets, but nutrition has always been a concern at mealtimes,” said Robertson. “We don’t have to worry anymore because he enjoys the taste of the +Plant nuggets, and I know he is still getting all of the nutrition he needs.”
+Plant Chicken Nuggets are available for delivery through +Plant’s website or sold at Harris Farm Market, Brisbane, for RRP $7.99
