Freebirds World Burrito Adds Beyond Meat to Menu

    Industry News | July 17, 2018

    Freebirds World Burrito, at 73-plus locations, is the largest multi-unit restaurant to roll out Beyond Meat’s pea-based protein across the U.S.

    Starting July 16, Freebirds fans can enjoy Beyond Meat’s gluten-free, soy-free, plant-based protein, mixed with potatoes and spices in made-to-order burritos, tacos, nachos, quesadillas, bowls and salads. Designed to look, cook and taste like ground beef with half the fat and no cholesterol or antibiotics, Beyond Meat offers a healthier meat alternative with satisfying, bold flavor for vegans and omnivores alike.

    The decision to partner with Beyond Meat stems from a rising consumer demand for better plant-based protein options that deliver health and environmental benefits without compromising great taste or texture.

    An industry gamechanger, Beyond Meat’s cutting-edge process organizes each of its plant-based ingredients to deliver against the unique texture of meat. By braiding together proteins, fats and minerals, Beyond Meat recreates the basic architecture, and thus texture, of meat to build the perfect plant-based protein.
