The faux meatballs are seasoned with a blend of Italian spices and come pre-rolled and ready to cook, according to the company. They are made from a protein derived from peas and brown rice and contain no GMOs, soy, gluten or synthetic ingredients and contain 30% less saturated fat and sodium than “a leading brand” of traditional meatballs.
Beyond Meatballs will be available in the fresh meat section at stores including Whole Foods Market, Stop & Shop, Sprouts, Harris Teeter, Kroger and Albertsons across the country by early October, according to Beyond Meat. A 12-pack will sell for a suggested $6.99.
