"The key is the production process [rather than the ingredients]," said SFT Founder and CEO Christie Lagally. "It's how we process the protein with our emulsifiers and flavoring and how we keep the air out of it to create a really dense product that releases juice, not air, when you cook it. By redesigning the manufacturing process, we are getting much closer to chicken than what's on the market today . We're also thinking about usability and trying to understand how our products would be used in foodservice. A lot of foodservice companies don't use plant based products because they come in tiny boxes, they don't cook the same in the usual oven, they don't cook at the same rate, and those things are really important."

For its first product - chicken nuggetschicken 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.
