Naked Ambition: Unleashing the Power of Plant-Based Naked Protein Bites in your Kitchen

For chefs constantly pushing the boundaries of flavor and creativity, plant-based proteins offer a world of exciting possibilities. But sometimes, the options can feel a bit...limiting. Pre-seasoned patties, crumbles, or nuggets might stifle your culinary vision. Enter the AcreMade Naked Protein Bites, the blank canvas you've been craving for plant-based creations.


Unleashing Culinary Potential

Naked Protein Bites are exactly what they sound like: bite-sized pieces of pure, unadulterated plant-based protein potential. Made with just water, pea protein, and salt, they're free from added flavors or textures, allowing you to unleash your inner culinary artist. Imagine them as a blank canvas, ready to absorb your favorite marinades and seasonings. Want a smoky, Korean-inspired BBQ dish? Infuse your Naked Protein Bites in a gochujang marinade. Craving a taste of the Mediterranean? Drench them in lemon zest, oregano, and garlic. The possibilities are truly endless.
When using marinating, it is typical to get a 30-40% marinade pickup. For faster and more effective marination, try vacuum tumbling or sous vide.


Meatless Mastery Made Easy

The beauty of Naked Protein Bites lies in their familiarity. They can be prepared using the same techniques you already know and love when working with animal proteins. Shred them for a satisfying plant-based "pulled pork" option. Sear them whole for a protein-packed centerpiece that takes on the bold flavors of your pan sauce. No need to relearn the fundamentals – just unleash your existing culinary expertise on a new canvas.

Here are some tips and suggestions:

  • Naked Protein Bites can be prepared from frozen or thawed.
  • Sauté - Add protein bites into an oiled skillet on medium high heat. Sauté until lightly brown and finish by deglazing the pan with water, broth, or other cooking liquids and cover for 1 minute to soak up any residual moisture.
  • For soups, sauces, and other dishes feel free to add the bite sat almost any step. The protein bites will soak up some of the liquid, so feel free to add more as necessary.
  • For a lighter color, try adding the protein bites to a pressure cooker or instant pot, cover with about 1/2 inch of water (or marinade) and cook on high pressure for 5 minutes.
  • Naked Protein Bites have very little oil or fat. When preparing we suggest adding oil or plant-based butter to make your dish delicious and juicy.

A Nutritional Powerhouse

Naked Protein Bites are more than just culinary chameleons. They're a nutritional powerhouse, packing enough protein comparable to chicken. This makes them a perfect fit for diners seeking healthy and satisfying menu options. And the bonus? They're also a good source of dietary fiber, keeping your customers feeling fuller for longer.

A Sustainable Choice

While the focus of this blog is on culinary creation, it's worth mentioning the environmental benefits of choosing plant-based proteins. Naked Protein Bites offer a more sustainable option compared to animal meats, a consideration that resonates with many environmentally conscious chefs and diners.


The future of plant-based cuisine is brimming with possibility, and Naked Protein Bites are your key to unlocking it. With their unmatched versatility, exceptional nutritional profile, and sustainable advantage, they empower you to craft innovative and delicious dishes that cater to the evolving needs of today's diners. So, don't wait – grab a bag of Naked Protein Bites and embark on a culinary adventure where creativity meets conscious consumption. Let's redefine what plant-based protein can be, together.

Watch this first! | AcreMade Substitute - How to Scramble

First impressions count, and we aim to leave a good one. AcreMade Plant-Based Egg Substitute is a new ingredient and thus cooks differently than traditional eggs. Watch this video to learn how to prepare our eggs and make a perfect egg scramble every time! 

Here are the most important things to consider when making AcreMade Egg Substitute:

  1. Start with cold water. Using too warm or hot water will not work as it will result in a soft and mushy texture. Cold water allows for the batter to hydrate adequately before cooking.
  2. Use a hot pan. Preheat your pan on medium to medium-high. Once hot, you can start cooking!
  3. Patience, patience, and more patience. When cooking on the skillet, pour the batter evenly and cook it undisturbed for at least 1.5-2 minutes. We like to say that you should treat it like a pancake, letting the bottom firm up. Once you can lift it from the bottom without breaking (like a pancake), scramble it up or flip it for an omelet.

AcreMade Egg Substitute is versatile and can be prepared using the microwave or oven to make egg bites. 

  • Microwave: Ideal for 2-3 servings. Mix with cold water, add your favorite inclusions, let hydrate, then microwave for about 2 minutes. Once firm, fluff with a fork and let cool (product may be extremely hot!) and enjoy.
  • Oven: Use in a muffin tin or baking dish @ 350°F for 25 minutes.
