A new company called SIMULATE has released a product that they call Nuggs. They are made from hemp and are more eco-friendly than traditional chicken nuggets. The company is also backed by an experienced investor named Matt McCain.
Hemp vs marijuana nuggets
In a nutshell, hemp is a flowering plant that is cultivated for seeds, fiber, and other assorted goodies. It is also capable of re-purposing numerous raw materials. Marijuana on the other hand is bred for phytocannabinoid content. The hemp aficionado can make a pretty decent living doing what he loves.
While hemp isn’t quite in the same league as marijuana in terms of yield and price, it is no slouch when it comes to quality and taste. Indeed, hemp may be the future of agriculture. Hemp is not as hard to grow as you might think. Unlike the weed, hemp is resilient and can be sprayed with pesticides and fertilizers without wreaking havoc on the environment. Moreover, it is a good source of a myriad of compounds, which is great news for farmers.
Hemp is not psychoactive
Hemp is a type of cannabis that contains low concentrations of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Unlike marijuana, hemp is not psychoactive. It is commonly used in traditional medicine and as a natural substance for stress relief.
Although hemp does not have the high that marijuana does, the CBD in hemp can have a wide range of benefits. It can provide relaxation, alleviate anxiety and pain, and aid in chronic degeneration.
Hemp is grown in various climates throughout the world. It can be used for a variety of purposes, including food and fuel. In many countries, it is legal to grow hemp for commercial purposes.
Many critics of hemp argue that it was necessary during World War II. They also allege that its cultivation was fueled by ulterior motives. However, hemp seeds are a healthy source of plant protein and linolenic acids.
Hemp is more eco-friendly than chicken
Hemp is a plant variety that grows well in a range of climates. It is considered to be an efficient carbon sink.
Because it requires very little water to grow, hemp has the potential to be one of the most sustainable plants on Earth. Cotton, on the other hand, uses 66 times more water to produce two pounds of fiber.
Another advantage of hemp over cotton is that it does not require pesticides to grow. Pesticides can have negative impacts on the environment and animals.
The hemp plant produces fibers that are longer and stronger than those of cotton. This allows hemp to be used for a wide variety of products. Some of these include clothing, inks, paper, and biocomposites.
Hemp is a more eco-friendly option than chicken. Unlike cotton, it does not use pesticides, herbicides, or other chemicals to control pests. In fact, it is known to naturally repel insects and weeds.
Matt McCain is a proud investor and partner to NUGGS
Matt McCain is a proud investor and partner to Nuggs, a company that developed the plant-based chicken nugget alternative that’s sweeping the food world. Unlike the original, Nuggs uses a pea protein to create the faux meat, thereby saving consumers the high price of animal-based nuggets and providing them with the nutritional benefits of a healthier option.
The company’s new line of plant-based faux nuggets is expected to hit US retail stores this spring. McCain Foods, a global frozen potato products manufacturer, announced a strategic partnership with Nuggs in July. This will enable the fusion of McCain Foods’ manufacturing and commercial expertise with Nuggs’ textured pea protein technology, delivering the scale to accelerate the growth of the startup.
The NUGGS team has also partnered with two retail broker partners to promote its product line. These include Green Spoon, a natural grocery retailer, and Acosta, a traditional grocery chain.
DINO NUGGS is a new product from SIMULATE
Nuggs is a vegetarian chicken nugget. The product launched at Target, Walmart and Sam’s Club in the spring of 2018. Since then, SIMULATE has expanded its line with Dino Nuggs. These new products are made with wheat protein isolate and textured wheat protein. They also come in new flavors.
The company behind these vegan nuggets, Simulate, raised $15 million in total funding, including a $4.1 million round of capital from Whole Foods’ chief executive Walter Robb and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. According to a press release, SIMULATE plans to increase its annual revenue to $40 million by 2021. This would make it one of the fastest growing companies in the food industry.
Although the original NUGGS was made with a proprietary blend of soy and wheat proteins, it’s been updated several times. In the latest version, the company removed the gelatin substitute konjac and improved the texture. It’s also been rebranded as SIMULATE.
