LET'S PLANT MEAT

The healthy and sustainable plant-based brand from local food supplier C S Tay Foods provides an alternative protein that offers the taste, texture and experience of eating meat but is wholly made of plant ingredients.

Once grilled, the "meat" is tender inside and crusty outside, and boasts an aroma of herbs and a hint of natural smoky flavour.

Its halal vegan burger patty can be paired with a multigrain bagel and its minced meat with rice.

Researched and produced in Thailand, the products contain no antibiotics, cholesterol, gluten, meat, milk or egg, and all soy ingredients are from non-GMO (genetically modified organism) sources.

Let's Plant Meat ($7.55 for two) is now available at selected FairPrice stores and on www.cstay.com

The first range that has been launched is the delicious Water Lily Pops, which comes in four flavours (original, spicy, cheddar cheese and Himalayan pink salt).

The snack is made from the seeds of water lily flowers - found in the ponds of the Indian state of Bihar- which are harvested, sun-dried, roasted and popped to produce a light, crunchy and highly nutritious nosh that tastes much better than popcorn.

All the Water Lily Pops flavours are low in calories yet energy boosting, and low in fat with zero trans fat. They are good for heart health and blood pressure, and also a good source of protein and antioxidants.

They are also gluten-free, organic, vegan and non-GMO, high in fibre, rich in calcium and halal-certified. Plus, they have a low glycaemic index, which makes them suitable for diabetics.

The Zenko Superfoods Water Lily Pops (from $3.50) are now available at stores such as FairPrice Finest, Shell Select, Ryan's Grocery and Cedele, as well as online on Zenko Superfoods' website and RedMart.
