Tyson Foods has become one of the well-known food producers in America. However, they haven’t added plant-based products to their food yet. The company also offers the best chicken nuggets with eggs and zero antibiotics.
Moreover, they also use pea protein, in addition to bamboo fibre and flaxseed. These two food products are expected to go on sale in late 2019.
