The National Restaurant Association Show announced the recipients of the 2020 Food and Beverage (FABI) Awards. These recognize products that are breaking new ground. They said nine of the awards are changing the “plant forward game.” Of interest to our readers may be Beyond Breakfast Sausage, Gardein Crabless Cake, Impossible Pork made from plants, Oatmilk Draft Latte, and Yondu Vegetable Umami. They also included CAULIPOWER Chicken Tenders as plant forward, but said they are from all natural, cage-free chicken, illustrating that plant forward isn’t the same as vegetarian or vegan. So always be sure to read ingredients!
