Hybrid veggie and meat products

SoleCina converts a proprietary blend of vegetable and meat protein into a nutritious hybrid with the consistency of cooked, whole muscle meat.? Appropriately flavoured, the final product almost perfectly mimics the taste and appearance of beef strips, chunks, patties or steak, but with considerably fewer calories, less fat and less cholesterol.?
