FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Plant Meat?
Ok, but what is it MADE from?
What’s the Catch?
Would my ‘meatatarian’ dad/brother/uncle/sister-in-law/etc like it?
How do I use Plant Meats?
You can use our Plant Meats in any recipe that calls for meat. Hey, you could even add it to recipes that don’t! There’s no need to throw away traditional favorites just because you’re cooking plant-based. Cook up your tried and true recipes or explore something new, just sub Plant Meat for whatever protein the meal calls for.
How do I cook it?
Do you have recipes?
Can Plant Meats be frozen?
Heck yeah they can. We vacuum-pack our meats for optimum freshness and easy storage. So stock up and pop those bad boys in the freezer. You can keep them frozen for at least 6 months, but we have a feeling you’ll polish them off well before then!
What is the date stamped on the outside of NEF packages?
That’s our ‘Best By’ date! This date lets you know when our meats are at their optimum freshness and retain their best physical and/or sensory quality (hubba hubba). It is not an expiration date or an indication of safety, but rather a guide to when NEF tastes and looks its finest!
If it’s past the Best By date, does it mean that I shouldn’t eat it? I really want to eat it.
Not necessarily. Although the product is past our optimum freshness date, if it still maintains good sensory and quality characteristics, you may still be able to dig in! Your decision should depend on several factors, including how the product has been stored in your home and whether or not the product has a funky look/smell or is otherwise noticeably changed. If the product was properly refrigerated and looks and smells normal this may allow for consumption after the Best By date. If any signs of degradation are evident it’s best to discard the product and pour one out for the homies.
