Nestlé has launched a limited-edition plant-based foie gras, Vois Gras, under its Garden Gourmet brand.
Nestlé’s research and development teams sought to develop an alternative to foie gras for consumers’ festive meals.
A spokesperson from Nestlé told FoodBev: “The delicious soy-based Voie Gras has an authentic texture, flavour and appearance. It goes very well with bread, brioche or canapé crackers, and can be used hot or cold, in sweet or savoury recipes.”
Voie Gras is launching during the season when animal-based foie gras is mostly consumed. The plant-based alternative is soy-based with a blend of miso paste, sea salt and truffle oil. The new product has a better nutritional profile than animal-based foie gras and is sold at a lower price point.
Voie Gras is available in select Swiss Coop stores for an RRP of CHF 7.95 (approx. $8.37) per 180g jar. It is also available in limited quantities in certain retailers in Spain.
