HOW DO WE GET OUR MEATBALLS SO JUICY?
We took the meaty texture and juicy flavor from our award-winning best sellers and combined them to create irresistibly delicious, gluten-free and fully-cooked meatballs. Soy protein delivers essential nutrition. The molecule heme is key to our meatballs’ unmistakable flavor while coconut and sunflower oils give a juicy sizzle. Methylcellulose (a culinary binder commonly found in ice cream, sauces, and jams) and food starch bring everything together.
