The products will launch at over 5,000 Kroger and Walmart stores nationwide as well as select Albertsons and Ahold divisions and other retailers across the country, according to the press release.

The Beyond Chicken Nuggets and Popcorn Chickenhave 14 grams of plant-based protein derived from a blend of faba bean and pea, 50 percent less saturated fat than a leading brand of traditional breaded chicken nuggets, 0mg of cholesterol, and no added antibiotics, hormones, or soy.

The Chicken Nuggets come pre-cooked and are perfect to cook in the air fryer in just under 5 minutes. This is a great lunchbox-friendly option that kids will love, according to the company. The Popcorn Chicken is bite-sized and can also be conveniently and quickly made in an air fryer.

“We’re always exploring new plant-based protein sources that deliver the taste and texture of its animal protein equivalent and are proud that by using faba bean protein we’ve been able to create a portfolio of absolutely delicious plant-based chicken products with no added soy, a key differentiator for our Beyond Chicken products within the category,” said Chief Innovation Officer Dariush Ajami.
