DELICIOUS BACON, MADE FROM PLANTS
Bacon is simply delicious. Which is why we have spent the last two years searching the plant kingdom for similar flavor notes, qualities and textures. UMARO bacon is crispy when you bite into it, but quickly melts into smoky, umami richness.
Our meaty taste, color, and texture come from seaweed and our proprietary red seaweed protein. Seaweed has been part of the human diet for ages. The “umami” taste in seaweed was first identified by a Japanese scientist describing its savory, meat-like, flavor.
Protein-rich chickpeas are loaded with fatty acids and essential amino acids, the building blocks of proteins.
Energy-rich coconut oil is our bacon’s source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) and antioxidants.
Sunflower oil provides a rich source of plant-based unsaturated fatty acids, including omega-6 and omega-9.
Plant flavors and colors like paprika and red radish juice help our bacon look and taste just like bacon.
Our bacon gets its salty flavor from abundant natural sea salt harvested directly from the ocean.
