Meati, Colorado’s mycelium-based meat specialist, will introduce its Meat Steak Tenderloin for direct-to-consumer purchase. Starting next Monday, May 23, Meati will expand its line of superfood proteins by launching the Meat Steak Tenderloin with national shipping through its website.

Meati Steak Tenderloin is an alternative to cut whole beef made from mycelium, the root network of fungi. The Boulder-based company claims every 4 oz. The steak portion is rich in umami flavor and is ready to be seasoned and prepared like a conventional piece of steak. Just one serving is cholesterol-free and complete with 14g of protein, plus a host of micronutrients such as riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin B12, zinc and copper.

The company recently launched its meat chops through its e-commerce platform and they sold out in less than 2.5 hours. Last year, Meati raised over $50 million in its Series B funding round, becoming one of the best-funded companies in the burgeoning mycelium food scene. Nonetheless, the company recently found itself embroiled in a legal dispute with fellow producer The Better Meat Co. over intellectual property.

In a recent interview with vegconomist, Meati Founder and CEO Tyler Huggins said, “I see nothing but growth for the category. Mycelium is an extremely versatile and energy-dense superfood, and I think we’re only scratching the surface of what’s possible. For Meati, we are building and planning around future facilities that will allow us to scale rapidly and ultimately deliver hundreds of millions of pounds of Meati over the next few years.
