My son and I just had Boca’s Original Chik’n Meatless Patties for lunch. He’s had them a couple of times, but this was the first time I’d tasted them. Our verdict? Pretty darn good! I like that they are vegan, made with non-GMO soy, have no cholesterol, and deliver 11 grams of protein in just 160 calories. Nick thought that the breading, taste, and texture of the patties was better than a lot of the other brands I’ve asked him to test for me. (What better Guinea pig could I possibly have than a twenty year old guy who loves meat!?)I had been steering clear of Boca products for awhile because I couldn’t tell if they were made with non-GMO ingredients. I was glad to see Boca’s new product line at my local Earth Fare. If buying non-GMO soy products is important to you, make sure you purchase the patties in the tan colored box (pictured above) and not the more familiar red Boca packaging.
Personally, I’m glad that Boca has introduced a product line featuring non-GMO ingredients. Now we need to show them, as consumers, that we noticed by seeking out and buying their non-GMO products.
