Product Snapshot: Upton’s Naturals, which pioneered flavored Seitan, is getting back to its roots with the launch of wheat-protein-based Jerky Bites. Made with a clean and simple ingredient list, the 100 percent vegan snacks offer a good source of protein (8-10g per serving), an excellent source of B-12, and come in creative, tropical-inspired flavors set to tantalize taste buds. Though the products feature a similar texture and chew to traditional beef jerky, these low-calorie, plant-based meat alternatives are completely free of artificial or "natural" flavors, GMOs, soy, trans fat and cholesterol and are low in fat and carbs. Complex, globally-inspired flavors include Smoky Original, Tarragon Ginger Lime, Tamarind Pepperoni, and Pineapple Pink Peppercorn.
