Word’s out: plant-forward is the way of the future. In fact, 44% of consumers are trying to eat less meat and 57% are trying to eat more plant protein. But the question lingers: can food be both tasty and healthy? Mankai breaks through that conundrum, proving that good-for-you food can be craveably good. Unlike other plant sources of protein like beans, peas, lentils, chickpeas or algal protein sources like spirulina, Mankai delivers complete protein, vitamin B12 and iron. Combine that with its neutral taste and texture that can easily be incorporated into existing menus and recipes and you’ve got the triple threat: nutrition, versatility and deliciousness.

“Lighthouse is a farm to table neighborhood restaurant serving modern Mediterranean food while pushing the boundaries for better environmental and social practices. We love Mankai for many reasons, but mostly for its nutritional value and health benefits. Knowing that we can deliver our guests (especially the vegetarians and vegans) dishes packed with bioavailable protein, vitamins and minerals feels great and is totally aligned with our values. Mankai is also a wonderful ingredient because of the texture it lends to sauces and dishes. It creates a rich and mouth-watering sensation that makes dishes more satisfying and satiating. Lastly, the sustainable way in which Mankai is grown makes it even more appealing. In our view, caring for human beings must include caring for the planet at large and being aware of our place in the food chain and the environment.”
