7 Things you didn’t know about Fry’s

It’s time to share some (possibly) unknown facts about Fry’s, how we compare to standard beef burgers and to divulge if Wally Fry really does lick the factory floor… Introducing The Did You Know series!

The Ultimate Burger Bash

Did you know the difference between a Fry’s burger and a standard beef burger? It’s the ultimate battle between the plants vs the meat. Fry’s is lower in calories and fat, and higher in protein and fibre than a standard beef patty. This means you are able to reduce your chances of heart disease, obesity, stroke and cancer when you choose a plant-based meat alternative over animal-based protein. We are rooting for #teamveg!

Meat Shrinks!

Did you know that raw beef, poultry and fish shrink in size to about 25% when cooked? The amount of fat, moisture content and the temperature at which the meat is cooked, influences the amount of shrinkage. This is the weight loss you don’t want! Fry’s products only shrink less than 1%, meaning more nutrients are retained and we get to eat more food. #winning.

Welcome to the Next Generation of Veg

We may be made of veggies and legumes, but we don’t taste like one! Did you know that Fry’s is a meat replacement and not a vegetable replacement? Fry’s comes in handy when you’re trying to inconspicuously blend with the meat-eating crowd. We have the same taste and texture as meat but just happen to be made of plants. We’re higher in protein than other veggies, meaty in taste and proud of it!

PS: all Fry’s products contain all 9 amino acids. “Where do you get your protein?” is a question that is now a thing of the past.

Say No to GMO

Did you know Fry’s products are 100 plant-based, free from antibiotics, hormones, harmful additives and contains non-GM ingredients? Our whole family eats all of the Fry’s products today – and we only consume food knowing that the ingredients are safe and healthy. This is our promise to our own family, and yours: Integrity to the ingredient and honouring the body.

Clean, Green and a Well-Oiled Machine!

This is no smear campaign. Did you know that Fry’s production floor surface is cleaner than your chopping board? When Fry’s co-founder, Wally Fry, visits the factory, he will wipe his finger on the floor and then lick it! The production facility is cleaned relentlessly, multiple times a day. No animal products ever enter the factory so there are zero chances of cross-contamination.

Hash It Out!

We love potatoes but in our opinion, if we want a meat-free burger, we go big or go home! Switch up a #brown for a Fry’s burger for a meal that is higher in protein, lower in fat and bigger in taste.
