FAQ – Abbots Butcher

  • 3.Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is the protein base of your meats?

    Our products are all based on the protein harvested from golden peas. We use a low heat enzymatic isolation process that protects the protein, but removes almost all of the phytates, lectins and trypsin inhibitors, leaving a very high protein, low carb, low fat protein.

  • Is this non-GMO?

    Yes. Every ingredient we use to craft our plant-based meats is procured from non-GMO sources.

  • What products are gluten-free?

    Our Ground "Beef" and our "Chorizo" are both gluten-free, wheat-free.

  • What is the shelf life?

    The frozen shelf life of our products is 9 months. Once thawed, the shelf life is 70 to 80 days. And because we do not use any additives or preservatives, we recommend that once you open, you enjoy within a week.

  • Why is it called Abbot's Butcher?

    Hi - This is Kerry writing. I named this company Abbot's Butcher, because I created the company while living on a street called Abbot Kinney in Venice (Los Angeles). It was a very formative time in my life. And Abbot Kinney himself was a conservationist. The "butcher" part of the name came from the idea that I believe we can bring a high-quality, premium level to the plant-based meat section. So together - Abbot's Butcher was born.
