WILLMAR, MINN. – Jennie-O Turkey Store, a subsidiary of Hormel Foods Corp., is adding burger blends to its product offerings. The new blended turkey products will combine white meat turkey, black beans, whole grain rice and pepitas. The blended burgers contain 15 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber in each patty.
"We know that people are becoming increasingly interested in adding more plant-focused foods to their diets,” said Ryan Moorlag, brand manager at Jennie-O. “Our new turkey burger blends make it easy to marry plant-based ingredients with lean meats.”
The Jennie-O turkey burger blends contain four, quarter-pound patties per package. The product will be sold in the freezer aisle at selected retailers around the country for a suggested retail price of $6.99 to $7.99. Product availability is expected to expand by the end of the year.
