(Made from Plants)

Tastes better than chicken*

We made a chicken nugget from plants that beat the leading animal chicken nuggets in a taste test.* Impossible Chicken Nuggets have the delicious savory taste of a family favorite, with a golden brown crispy breading on the outside and a tender, juicy bite on the inside. Plus, they have 12g protein, no cholesterol, and no animal antibiotics.** Bonus: they're also better for the planet.

*In a blind taste test in Irving, TX, of 201 meat-eating consumers, many of whom regularly eat plant-based products, 74% preferred Impossible Chicken Nuggets over animal chicken nuggets from a leading supplier.
**USDA Chicken Nuggets contain 3.5 g of saturated fat and 540 mg sodium while Impossible Chicken Nuggets contain 2g of saturated fat and 400 mg sodium per 100g

(What's Inside)

How do we get our nuggets so tender, juicy, and delicious?

Impossible Chicken Nuggets are made with soy protein to deliver that meaty bite. Soy protein is packed with plant-based protein and is a good source of amino acids and essential minerals like potassium. Sunflower oil gives Impossible Chicken Nuggets their juiciness. Methylcellulose (a binder in ice cream, sauces, and jams) and food starch (a carbohydrate in foods like canned soup) hold it all together. A blend of herbs and seasoning give these nuggets a delicious, savory flavor. Wheat flour creates golden-brown breadcrumbs that give Impossible Chicken Nuggets a crispy coating.

A blend of herbs and seasoning give them a delicious, savory flavor.

To get our golden-brown crust, we use wheat flour breadcrumbs that give Impossible Chicken Nuggets a crispy, crunchy coating.
