Formidable Meats is a biotech startup that specializes in plant-based beef alternatives that don't skip out on texture and flavor. The company's products are firm in texture and boast the same rich aroma of beef while being better for the planet.
Rather that growing its meat in a lab, Formidable Meats creates products using its signature "Meat-O-Matic Reverse Grinder™ 9000" technology. "Mimicking muscle structures, it layers soy protein into linear fibers" and is "a 100% mechanical process using only natural ingredients."
With more consumer demand for plant-based meat substitutes -- for both environmental and health reasons -- biotech startups are developing new protein-dense and natural meat substitutes while addressing growing concerns centered around lab grown products. In addition to moving away from traditional lab-grown processes, these companies are also substituting meat while reducing sodium, added preservatives and saturated fats.
