PRODUCTION AND PACKAGING

Let me explain. We mix the protein in the ingredients—all natural, I might add, and with nothing genetically modified—with natural flavors from plants and combine them together. It doesn’t contain anything synthetic or artificial.
It is processed in the sense that any food made industrially is. For example, flour, yogurt, tapioca, etc. But that doesn’t mean the meat I produce is poor quality, especially when compared to meat from animals. But that doesn’t mean it should replace a balanced diet, alright? 😉
Well, it’s plastic, isn’t it? Look, I could say that the packaging can be recycled (which is true, even the outer paper wrapping) and that you can help by separating your waste and taking it to a recycling bank. But the truth is we know that’s not ideal. That’s why we’ve been testing alternatives so we can change our packaging once and for all. It’s better for the future, right?

INGREDIENTS AND HEALTHINESS

Future meat is made from three main sources of vegetable protein: soybeans, peas, and chickpeas. When combined, they provide a similar amount of protein as meat of animal origin, whilst containing all the essential amino acids. In other words, it’s just like meat but it doesn’t come from animals, it doesn’t contain cholesterol, and it has less of a negative impact on the environment. 🌍
The products have no added calcium.
It’s magic! Just kidding. It’s much like the work of a perfumer, combining scents to imitate any smell or taste. Flavoring at Future Farm are extracted from plants and nothing is made in a lab.
It’s a combination of natural flavors that recreate the smell and taste of meat. With nothing of animal origin, of course.
It’s kind of a vegetable protein salad, containing soybeans, peas, chickpeas, and beetroot.
No, it’s not hydrogenated. It’s actually made from coconut fat you see?

We wouldn’t be able to say it was “of the future” if it was just another soy meat, right? The recipe does include soybeans. But to make it the same texture, succulence, and taste as animal meat, we also use chickpeas, peas, and beetroot.
Yes, GMO-free soybeans cultivated in Brazil.

No, they are not organic, but they are certified as GMO-free.
Yes, it’s plant-based after all. But you still have to eat a balanced diet 😉
No, the factory is free from gluten and our products are certified as such!
No, the sodium content is not linked to the fact that it is processed. What makes the sodium content higher is the isolated vegetable protein and the salt, which we use to imitate the taste of meat 😉
The term “modified” refers to the heat treatment the ingredient is put through during the manufacturing process. Oh, and it’s GMO-free 😉
It is a mix of vegetable protein: soybeans, peas, and chickpeas, and there’s beetroot for color, as well as coconut fat.
We don’t use fungi (mushrooms) as an ingredient or in our processes. 😉
Our suppliers have farms in several parts of Brazil. 😉
The product does not contain any preservatives; what keeps it fresh is quick freezing and a special wrapping system.
Soy, which is a large component of plant-based meat, contains a similar amount of amino acids as meat from animals, and we match up in terms of protein too. Just without the cholesterol, gluten, or animal products.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

My mission is to change the way people eat meat. After all, many people stop eating meat because they love animals and the planet, not because they don’t like the taste of meat. So, why not offer an alternative that has the same taste, texture, and succulence as meat without containing anything from animals?
Many people stop eating animal meat not because of the taste but for ethical reasons, empathy, or because they want a better world. So I try very hard to make plant products have the same succulence, texture, and taste as meat.
Making plant-based meat uses 75% to 99% less water than the animal version.
Hey, you’re right; that meat does exist, but ours is not like that. You may have got mixed up. The documentary you may have seen discusses Cell Based Meat (meat derived from animal cells). Here at Future Farm, our meats are plant-based with zero animals involved 😉
Future Farm is a start-up and has no links to any other companies. Our ingredients are not tested on animals and we have non-testing certificates from each of our suppliers.
We have no links to any other companies. We are a new company that was created to produce plant-based meat products.

Our objective is to offer plant-based meats to everyone, including vegans and omnivores especially, as this is an option similar to meat of animal origin, but without any meat. We want to be everywhere: supermarkets, snack bars, and restaurants, even those that specialize in meat. We start from the assumption that every portion of plant-based meat eaten means a portion of animal meat that was not eaten. That’s good for everyone: people, the planet, and animals.

Neither our ingredients or our final products are tested on animals.
Future Farm makes food and there is no need or legal requirement to carry out any sort of test for any purpose.
The company is a limited company created from a start-up and has no links to any other companies.
We do not sell our products in China or in any other countries that require testing. We work with natural foods that do not require testing.
