Ikea will introduce a plant-based version of its hot dog next year as it expands its collection of alt-meat food products.
The plant-based hot dog is made of rice protein, onion, apple, salt, pepper, and added smokiness to offer an original sausage flavour.
To encourage customers to choose plant-based options, Ikea says it will price them affordably.
Helene von Reis, food manager of Ikea of Sweden, aims to provide more plant-based alternatives that will have less of an impact on the environment.
“The plant-based hot dog was developed to mimic the texture and sensory experience of biting into the classic Ikea meat-based hot dog,” added von Reis.
“With a great taste, texture, and a snap when you bite it, the plant-based hot dog is a great alternative to the traditional iconic hot dog at Ikea.”
