Taft Foodmasters: Seasoned Seitan

Posted in Featured Brand on March 9th at 2:11 pm

Derived from wheat, seitan has been a staple of asian cuisines for centuries. However, in recent years its popularity has exploded worldwide as vegetarians, vegans, and those trying to lead a healthier lifestyle have discovered this plant-based, high protein meat alternative. Because seitan closely mimics the look, texture, and taste of meat, it can be easily incorporated into a variety of dishes. Recognizing the many opportunities afforded by this versatility, Taft Foodmasters has created a variety of gourmet seitan-based products with international appeal! Kosher, Non-GMO, and Vegan Verified, Taft’s Gyros and Spicy Italian Sausages are made in artisanal batches, carefully seasoned and hand-sliced to ensure authenticity. All Taft products come fully cooked and take only seconds to heat, making for a fast, convenient meal that doesn’t skimp on taste or nutrition!
