At last, sustainable vegan chicken worthy of the name.

Think plant-based poultry can’t touch the real thing? Prepare to be surprised. PURIS vegan chicken has mouthwatering flavor, aroma, and texture with no soy, mystery additives, or funny aftertastes. So many possibilities: light or dark, nuggets, breasts or patties, shredded or breaded. All made from non-GMO organic ingredients that use a tiny fraction of the energy of feedlot chicken.

Better than the real thing. 

PURIS plant-based chicken contains 21g protein per 3 oz serving--25% more than a serving from our feathered friends.

Protein promotes satiation (reaching fullness while eating) and maintains satiety (feeling fuller for longer when you’re done eating).

Protein is vital for myriad body functions like building and repairing muscle, promoting immune function, forming enzymes that participate in metabolic processes, and more.


Less sodium, more to enjoy. 

8% less sodium than shredded chicken and 14% less sodium than our leading plant-based counterparts.

Sodium is a contributor to cardiovascular problems, so PURIS clocks in as a better for you option contributing only 15% to the daily allowance.


A good source of fiber. 

PURIS plant-based chicken contains 4 grams of fiber. Real chickens? None.

Fiber helps maintain a healthy digestive tract by feeding the good bacteria in your gut, is heart-healthy as it reduces LDL cholesterol, and stabilizes blood sugars.


Iron Included. 

15% DV iron per serving compared to 2% for shredded chicken.

Plant-based consumers are often concerned about iron intake. PURIS plant-based chicken provides 15% of the daily need for iron - nearly 8x that of its animal-based counterpart.

Iron is the most commonly deficient nutrient in the world despite being one of the most important nutrients for growing bodies and brains.

Iron is vital for helping transport oxygen throughout the body, in turn keeping tissues healthy and improving energy levels.
