Mheat is a vegan meat made with a uniquely crafted blend of wheat & soya protein and very few other, whole plant-based ingredients. Just like an artisanal bakery makes its bread, it all starts from a dough, which is then seasoned and cooked differently according to several carefully devised recipes. We've used Mheat to create a variety of products that authentically reproduce conventionally meat-based foods such as Pastrami, Streaky Bacon, Rare Roast Beef and Italian Salamino (pepperoni).
We don't make fake meats: they are real, just vegan.
We’re two Italian expats, passionate about eating, cooking and discovering real food, sharing food culture, and re-dimensioning culinary heritages in vegan terms. We are well aware that not everyone feels the same as us when it comes to following a vegan diet. In fact, most people see plant-based products as being meat-free, lactose-free, taste-free, creativity-free, even pleasure-free replacements of ‘proper food’ - we think it’s time to revolutionise this vision! Sgaia was born to take part in the plant-based revolution, to support all human beings in their search for tasty, cruelty-free foods that don’t obstruct the possibility of standing by one’s cooking traditions. Far from being free-from, our food is, as we like to call it, deliciously full-of! Full of natural ingredients, full of nutrients, full of taste and full of originality.
