TiNDLE is a ridiculously good chicken made from plants that tastes remarkably like chicken made from birds. It is the first product by Next Gen Foods, a food startup on a mission to make the shift to plant-based foods easy, enjoyable and delicious. TiNDLE consists of only nine ingredients and is made with chefs, for chefs to provide the taste, texture and versatility of chicken from birds.

We looked at what we loved about chicken and created this without animal ingredients to deliver a plant-based chicken that is high protein and fiber, with ohne Gentechnik ingredients.
