Rebellyous Foods (formerly Seattle Food Tech) is a plant-based, meat alternative food company. They use an low-energy manufacturing process to produce their meat alternatives. Rebellyous Food's goal is to provide plant-based meat that is sustainable, affordable and widely available.
Christie Lagally, Rebellyous Foods founder and CEO, was formerly a mechanical engineer with Boeing on their 777 project, and worked at the Good Food Institute, is as interested in developing new technology and new production techniques. Their aim is to be able to produce their product at lower cost than traditional chicken with a similar volume output. The manufacturing equipment is meant to be standardized and replicable to expand the possibilities of Rebellyous Foods and the plant-based meat industry.
For its first product - chicken nuggets - which will initially be targeted at the high-volume end of the foodservice sector, Seattle Food Tech is using a fairly standard textured wheat protein, safflower oil, an emulsifier, some starch, vegan flavoring and some corn-breading and is designed to perform like a Tyson chicken nugget. The second product - chicken strips - has a similar formulation but also contains some soy.
