Nestlé has expanded its plant-based food range in Europe with its new ‘cook from raw’ Garden Gourmet Incredible Mince. The brand is also introducing a new and improved version of its Garden Gourmet Incredible Burger.
The new Garden Gourmet Incredible Mince can be used to create balls or skewers that can be seasoned to taste. It can also be crumbled up in a pan to make a Bolognese sauce or chili sin carne.
Like the Garden Gourmet Incredible Burger, the plant-based mince looks and cooks like raw beef due to its blend of protein from soy, natural plant extracts – beetroot, carrot, and bell pepper – and vegetable fats.
The Garden Gourmet Incredible Mince will be available starting September in a number of European countries, including Austria, Belgium, Germany, Norway and Sweden.
Nestlé has also renewed the recipe of its Garden Gourmet Incredible Burger just seven months after its first launch. Based on consumer feedback, the plant protein experts and chefs at Nestlé were able to increase the juiciness, grilled beefy flavor and meat-like texture of the burger.
The burger creates the experience of eating a beef burger using natural soy and wheat protein, colour from natural plant extracts, chopped coconut oil, and a proprietary method of fermenting plant-based ingredients to boost the ‘umami’ flavor.
