Uptons Naturals

Upton’s Naturals, an independently-owned vegan company that was the first to produce flavored seitan in the U.S., is launching its popular Italian, Bacon and Chorizo Seitan at Natural & Organic Products Europe, April 7-8, 2019.

The company is also celebrating presence of its Jackfruit products in over 1,000 retail locations across the United Kingdom, including 800 Holland & Barrett and 300+ Sainsbury’s stores. Here’s how their lineup of 100% vegan, meat alternatives breaks down:

  1. Flavored Jackfruit – After kickstarting the jackfruit food trend in the States, Upton’s Naturals introduced the first pre-seasoned, heat-and-serve, natural jackfruit available in Europe. When cooked up young (a.k.a. not ripe) and seasoned right, this tropical fruit has the texture and taste of perfect pulled pork or shredded chicken. Using only simple, recognizable ingredients, Upton’s Naturals’ Jackfruit offers a good source of fiber and is completely free of cholesterol, gluten, soy, oil, GMOs, and artificial flavors. Flavors include: Bar-B-Que, Thai Curry, an unseasoned Original variety, plus new-to-market Sweet and Smoky and Chilli Lime.
  2. Seasoned Seitan – This versatile meat alternative is made from vital wheat gluten and simple, recognizable ingredients. The Italian Seitan cooks up like savory, sausage crumbles, the sliced and smoky Bacon Seitan is a meat-free take on a timeless foodie favorite, and the Chorizo Seitan adds complex flavors to tacos and breakfast scrambles. Upton’s Naturals’ Seitan offers a good source of protein, is Non-GMO Project Verified, completely free of artificial flavors, oil, trans fat, and cholesterol, and low in fat and carbs.

In addition to its success in the U.K., Upton’s Naturals’ Jackfruit and Seitan have launched in 15 countries worldwide. Other vegan offerings available for retailers to carry include a Ch’eesy Mac lineup and Thai-inspired Meal Kits.
