Nestlé's plant-based brand Sweet Earth has rolled out two new vegan products just in time for summer grilling season.
Vegan Jumbo Hot Dogs and the new and improved Sweet Earth Awesome Burger 2.0 have launched in the United States.
The juicy Sweet Earth Vegan Jumbo Hot Dogs are made using a pea and potato protein base. They deliver an authentic hot dog experience and grill beautifully or sizzle satisfyingly in a skillet, making them the perfect flavorful vegan and sustainable swap for the summer.
The updated Sweet Earth Awesome Burger 2.0 will be the first plant-based burger on the market to use a mix of pea and fava in addition to hemp protein as its base. The use of these proteins allows Sweet Earth to deliver a beefier texture and more authentic burger experience.
The improved Awesome Burger 2.0, vegan jumbo hot dogs are developed by Sweet Earth culinary team in collaboration with Nestlé's R&D Center for food in Ohio, U.S., and Nestlé's global R&D network. With proprietary technologies and Nestlé's plant protein expertise, the teams develop plant-based innovations with the right taste, texture and juiciness, that are also nutritious.
Sweet Earth also recently announced the release of a new plant-based Jerky in two flavors, Spicy Kung Pao and Sweet Korean BBQ. The move into the snacking aisle is meeting the demand for unique savory snack options.
Nestlé continues to use its plant protein expertise and its innovation capacity to offer people around the world even more great plant-based options. In Europe the company launched plant-based milk alternative and a vegan KitKat last month.
