California—New Wave Foods


New Wave Foods is producing a vegan shrimp that looks and tastes just like the real thing.”


“To make the shrimp realistic, the company uses the same red algae consumed by shrimp that gives them their characteristic pinkish coloring and combines it with plant-based proteins to create the fake shrimp.  No animal cells are used.  Because of that, it’s low fat, cholesterol-free and allergen-free.  Best of all, you don’t have to peel the shrimp (there’s no shell to peel) and you don’t need to devein it either.  What you have is just the ‘meat’ part of the shrimp to enjoy.”
