we've eaten Sobey's / Compliment's Naturally Simple Green Bean & Pea Burger patties for a few years now -- a delicious alternative to meat patties.

Shock the ....out of me and will post a wee bit of your news at site darling Lone before I sign off.

"“Pea protein is an amazing resource for us, it works well, but there’s nothing particularly special about it,” Chief Executive Officer Ethan Brown says. “If you think about the plant kingdom, there are so many other stocks we can use—mung bean, brown rice, mustard seed, lentils. We will have a much more diverse bench of proteins.”

Using a variety of ingredients, he says, will give the company’s products a “more varied bite” and a texture that’s closer to animal meat.

Not too long ago, soy ruled the plant-based kingdom, becoming the go-to base of many well-known meatless products, like Morningstar Farms Grillers veggie burgers, Lightlife’s Gimme Lean sausage and Gardein Chick’n Strips. But over the past several years, food trends have turned against it. While soy is easier to buy than pea protein, it’s also an allergen, is often genetically modified and has been the victim of conflicting headlines about health risks.

In the U.S., 30% of consumers ages 18 to 34 say they or someone in their household is avoiding soy, according to data compiled by Mintel for the American Pulse Association."
