Field Roast uses fresh whole-food ingredients—grains, vegetables, legumes and spices—to craft our artisanal plant-based meats and cheeses. Since 1997, we have been pioneering the plant-based industry by creating flavorful, high-quality products that satisfy.
Field Roast products are high in protein thanks to vital wheat gluten, which is wheat flour removed of starches; without the starches, you're left with pure wheat protein. Some of our products also use wheat protein isolate in addition to the vital wheat gluten. The wheat protein isolate is a high protein, low fat and carbohydrate supplement. We also use pea protein in some of our products that comes from 100% non-GMO peas and provides high quality protein nutrition.
No, Field Roast products are not gluten-free. Wheat protein is one of the main ingredients in many of our plant-based meat products. Our Chao Creamery dairy-free cheeses do not have any gluten containing ingredients.
Field Roast plant-based meats are all Non-GMO Project Verified.
Our products are not currently organic. The truth is we would have to raise prices considerably to use all-organic ingredients, and our goal is to make plant-based meats and cheeses that are accessible. We focus on using fresh produce and locally-sourced ingredients, where possible, for our spices and flours. We do use organic wheat flour and organic wheat flakes.

Field Roast plant-based meat products can be kept frozen for up to one year; once thawed, they are good for about 65 days. Many stores are responsible for adding a “use by” date once they are stocked. If you purchase them in the refrigerated section of your grocery store, you may extend their freshness by refreezing them until you are ready to use them.
Field Roast sausages don’t have any casings in a traditional sense. The vital wheat gluten is strong enough to hold the sausage together. We do link our sausages into a food-grade, BPA-free plastic barrier casing, which must be removed before preparing or eating the product.
Our plant-based meat products do not contain soy as an ingredient. Our Chao Creamery slices contain soy from fermented tofu.
Our products have not been certified kosher.
No. All of the products made in our facilities are 100% plant-based.
We source our palm oil from Daabon, a family-owned company based in north Colombia along the Caribbean coast. They’ve been in business since 1915 and are now in the third generation of ownership. Their palm oil is expeller-pressed (which means it's made without chemical solvents), organic and sustainable.
Daabon is committed to sustainable practices through water, waste and methane management and the preservation of biodiversity. They are in alliance with Rainforest Action Network (RAN), the leading activist organization that has been most critical of palm oil agriculture. Daabon is a founding member of the Palm Oil Innovation Group (POIG), which promotes innovation and improvements in palm oil production on a range of environmental, social and supply chain issues. POIG is supported by well-known environmental NGOs like Greenpeace, World Wildlife Foundation and RAN.
