Today, Momentum Foods launched on Y Combinator’s “Launch YC

Launch YC: Momentum Foods (W23)

Momentum Foods is adding meat back into plant-based meat to make it more affordable, healthy, and delicious.

Founded by Saba Fazeli, who played a key role in Beyond Meat's R&D; and Brice Klein, an early-stage engineer at agritech startup Plenty.


Momentum Foods creates cost-effective hybrid-protein products that combine plant proteins with the best parts of real meat.

The resulting products are nearly indistinguishable from real meat, are less expensive, and have a lower environmental impact.

Their premier product, retail brand Paul's Table, is scheduled for a Summer '23 release:

Tasty, healthy, and convenient alternatives with half the fat of conventional meat, and a fraction of the cholesterol, are made possible by Momentum Foods. Why choose plant-based proteins or real meat when you can have both?


Follow them on Instagram!

The Momentum Foods team would appreciate intros to grocers, restaurants, or food-world tastemakers interested in trying out Paul's Table.
