About Harvest Shreds
I love meat!! Is this for me?
The fast answer is absolutely. We love meat too! But we also love animals and our planet. We have not found anything that helps either of those without a significant sacrifice in taste, texture and craveability. Until NOW!!! Harvest Shreds rivals meat in every conceivable way. It has that toothy, chewy texture of a shredded meat with crispy, caramelized bits. It is jammed full of flavor – currently available in four varieties – and is a quick meal solution that satisfies and fills you.
How does Harvest Shreds differ from other plant proteins?
There is a wide variety of plant-based protein available in today’s market. If you look closely, you will notice that nearly all of them are ground or heavily processed in a formed shape. We went the other direction, bringing to market a “whole muscle” shredded product. There is a significant difference in the way it chews. In a blind taste test, you would be hard pressed to realize you were not chewing meat.
The other thing you will notice is that we have used our penchant for global adventure to celebrate cultures that are meat-centric. Many plant-based products are unseasoned and rely on condiments for flavor. The plant burger market is chock-full of products like that. We go to Korea for Bulgogi and Mexico for Barbacoa, as well as Texas for a pulled BBQ, so that our shredded product not only chews like shredded meat, but it also delivers the flavor-packed experience of eating food off an open fire or Barbecue pit. We also offer a gently flavored product called Naked, Subtly Seasoned. Our food service chefs love that for the ability to create something uniquely their own.
What makes Harvest Shreds so craveable?
At Fifth Taste Foods, we are experts on craveability. We started with our line of global chile crisps, oo’mämē, which has a foundation of umami, the savory fifth taste, as its base. Umami amplifies other tastes that are present and magnifies a dish’s deliciousness. There are a variety of ingredients in the four flavors of Harvest Shreds that bring essential tastes of the countries we celebrate, but each has a proprietary blend of umami-rich ingredients that gives them that I-want-more-ish quality. Ingredients like miso, soy sauce and shiitake mushrooms are a few of our umami heroes.
Where does the protein come from?
We use an isolated soy protein product which is non-GMO. Creating a product that chews like meat and rivals its texture was high on our list. We found this product to be superior to other sources of plant protein in producing the whole muscle texture we set out to create.
Are your ingredients real?
YES, THEY ARE!! There is a lot of discussion in this space about fake meat and lab-created products. That is not us. A chef created our products, as a result of extensive testing in a kitchen, using culinary ingredients only. You will not find any confusing ingredients on our labels. This is food for people, made by people.
Are your products vegetarian?
Yes, they are. While we currently do not offer a vegan product, the recipes are ready and it is on our list to add to the line later.
Cooking with Harvest Shreds
What is the best way to use Harvest Shreds?
Depends on who you ask! Mark likes to layer his for breakfast, with tortillas, fried peppers and onions, all topped with poached eggs. Karen leans toward the No Banh Meat – a sandwich offered by one of our restaurant clients. It’s a hero of a sandwich, stuffed with Harvest Shreds, quick pickled vegetables, chiles, herbs and a drizzle of a tangy aioli. The one thing we all agree on is that you can add it to any dish that needs some game-changing, planet-saving plant protein.
Try it on bowls, breakfast scrambles, tacos, and stir-fries. We love it on salads or in lettuce wraps. Or top pizzas, tostadas or jazz up your avocado toast. Anywhere you need to add protein pronto, reach for Harvest Shreds.

Harvest Shreds and Sustainability
Better for You. Better for the Planet.
We believe strongly in our collective responsibility to be stewards of our one planet. Radical changes are hard. But taking steps toward a better use of our natural resources can be a daily practice. Whether you are a vegetarian or just want to eat meat one less day a week, we want to make that an option. And because we take immense pleasure in breaking bread and celebrating at the table, we want that to be enjoyable and downright craveable – no compromises! We’re creating craveable, healthy, plant-based eating for everyone.
When compared to a 3-ounce burger (half the size of a standard burger!) with 6.8 grams of saturated fat, Harvest Shreds drops that to 1/2 gram! And we have not skimped on protein. A three-ounce serving of Harvest Shreds packs a full 16 to 17 grams of protein, all while delivering a craveable, chewy mouthful, bursting with flavor.
With your help and support, our impact on climate can be significant. The production technique for our soy protein tops the lists for planet-friendly, minimal impact proteins, compared to alternative sources. In contrast to cattle production, our soy protein reduces impact in the following ways:
98% lowered carbon dioxide emissions
97% reduced blue water use
99% reduced land use
And, of course, the expansion of a plant-based regimen results in reduced exploitation and an increased consciousness toward the treatment of animals.
