Revo Foods is making waves in the food and beverage industry with their innovative creation, The Kraken – Inspired by Octopus. This meat-free octopus tentacle product is a first in the market, made from mycoprotein sourced from the fungi kingdom. Mycoprotein provides a ‘meaty’ texture to meat alternatives and is rich in protein, fiber, minerals, and vitamins. Revo Foods’ use of mycoprotein in their products sets them apart from other plant-based alternatives by requiring significantly less processing, preserving more micronutrients.

The Kraken boasts high amounts of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and nutrients, achieving a Nutri-Score ‘A’. CEO Robin Simsa revealed that the company is experimenting with a new 3D structuring technology for the product, preparing for a future wider-scale release based on market and distribution partner feedback.

One of the standout features of The Kraken is its vibrant color, achieved through natural colorings like carrot, blueberry, paprika, and sweet potato. The texture of the product, described as ‘a bit less chewy’ than conventional octopus, can be adapted for both cold and hot dishes, such as grilling, frying, baking, or serving as is.

Interest in octopus consumption is on the rise, driven by documentaries like ‘My Octopus Teacher’. Revo Foods acknowledges the ethical concerns surrounding octopus farming and aims to provide a sustainable and cruelty-free alternative with The Kraken.

As Revo Foods faces potential pushback for their plant-based labeling, CEO Robin Simsa stands by the transparency of their products and the importance of consumer choice. Despite challenges from various EU stakeholders, they remain committed to offering innovative plant-based food products that meet all food standards.

In conclusion, Revo Foods’ introduction of The Kraken showcases their commitment to food and beverage industry innovation and sustainability. With a focus on quality, nutrition, and authenticity, The Kraken sets a new standard for plant-based seafood alternatives in the market.
