How long can you store the Greenway Burger, the Greenway Chipolata and the Greenway Minced Meat?

Can you freeze the Greenway Burger, the Greenway Chipolata and the Greenway Minced Meat?

The products are freshly produced and delivered daily, therefore suitable to freeze. Frozen (-18 °C) products will maintain best quality for 10 months.

How is the casing of the Greenway Chipolata made ?

Contrary to its meat variant, the casing of the Greenway Chipolata is 100% plant-based and doesn’t contain any animal products. The casing is in fact very innovative and is made out of seaweed.

What is methylcellulose and what is it used for?

Methylcellulose is made from cellulose, an important substance for plants. This fibre makes sure that plants and trees stand firmly and remain upright, but it also preserves the texture of our products. Although we’d rather talk of ‘plant-based fibre’ or ‘the better alternative’ at Greenway, we are constrained by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and are therefore directed to call it E461.

Despite negative reports, research shows that the use of methylcellulose in food – to substitute, among other things, chicken protein – is not harmful. An upper limit has not been established for the consumption of methylcellulose, which means that even large quantities are not damaging for your health. At worst, overcompensation might lead to gastrointestinal symptoms. So, no reason to get worried.

Who is Greenway?

Greenway is a Belgian company that was founded 23 years ago by Paul Florizoone, a true pioneer in the field of vegetarian and vegan products. In the year 1996, Paul started his first Greenway restaurant in the centre of Ghent. Even today, all activities are run from this place.

Greenway’s mission is to persuade meat lovers by producing tasty veggie and vegan alternatives for meat. By convincing meat lovers of the alternatives, they can reduce their impact on the environment and promote animal welfare. Transparency and honesty are always at the heart of Greenway’s approach.
