Plant-based proteins? Subway says 'let's play (meat)ball!'

And just because the sub includes a meat substitute doesn't mean it lacks protein. The Beyond Meatball Marinara is among the offerings in Subway's Fresh Fit menu that includes 6-inch subs made with wheat bread, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, cucumbers and a choice of sauces.

The world's largest restaurant chain by unit count said Wednesday that it plans to test a Beyond Meatball Marinara at 685 locations in the US and Canada for a limited time beginning next month. Subway's Beyond Meat meatballs are meant to look and taste like the real thing, and I'm thoroughly convinced so far.

"Our guests want to feel good about what they eat and they also want to indulge in new flavors".

The popularity of plant-based meats is causing a surge in meatless options at fast food chains.

About Subway ® Restaurants The Subway restaurant chain continues to evolve the dining experience, offering guests in more than 100 countries quality ingredients, as well as robust flavor combinations with almost 7 million made-to-order sandwiches created each day.

The company, which was founded in 2009 and is now worth an estimated $5.7 billion, also partnered with fast-casual Mexican chain Del Taco to provide meatless "beef" options. And that's not the only breakfast staple the plant-based company is trying to reinvent.
