Better Balance Launches Plant-Based Whole Cut ‘Better-Nera’ in Spain with Chunk Foods

Following the announcement this January that the company was to develop co-branded plant-based whole cuts for the Latin American market in collaboration with Chunk Foods, Better Balance now presents the 100% plant-based “Better-nera” cut for the Spanish market.

Also co-developed with vegan steak specialist Chunk Foods, using a patented solid-state fermentation technology, this innovative cut of plant meat is a pioneer in its category in Spain, says Better Balance, a subsidiary of the Sigma group.

“With the 100% plant-based Better-nera, we are witnessing the impact of a cutting-edge food technology”

Better-nera has a high protein content (21%) and is an excellent source of fibre, enriched with iron and vitamin B12. In addition, it is cholesterol-free, low in saturated fat and sodium, and contains no artificial colours or preservatives. The product has been categorised with Nutriscore A and can be prepared in a variety of ways: pan-fried, roasted, smoked or stewed, making it an ideal substitute for meat in a wide variety of recipes.

Presentation at Food 4 Future

The brand presented this product at the inaugural dinner of Food 4 Future, the leading FoodTech congress, which was held at the San Mamés stadium in Bilbao yesterday, Tuesday 16th April. For those curious to try this exclusive dish, the Better-nera is already available in a selection of leading restaurants in Madrid, such as Grillao or Zielou, among others.
