Ozo Italian Style Plant Based Meatballs Review
Review Thoughts: It’s easy to overcook these and while they smell great, there is a slightly weird taste while chewing. Out of the few products we did try from the Ozo line, these were our least favorite.
They did cook nicely though and can be cooked from frozen which was a win.
We do think they are on the pricier side for the amount of meatballs you get in comparison to cost.
Review Ingredients: Water, Textured Pea Protein (Pea Protein & Pea Fiber), Wheat Gluten, Canola Oli, Sustainable Palm Oil, Contains 2% of less of: Pea and Rice Protein Fermented by Shiitake Mycelia, Onion*, Spices, Tomato*, Salt, Fruit & Vegetable Juice (Color), Ascorbic Acid, Yeast Extract, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Sugar, Natural Flavor, Citric Acid, Methylcellulose
Ozo Garlic & Herb Plant Based Chicken Cutlet Review
Thoughts: Again, make sure to not overcook. I’d even recommend cooking on the lower end as long as the internal temp is accurate.
The flavor was great and perfectly seasoned. There was even a “chicken skin” which honestly can be a turn off to some but it was really cool to see how Ozo made this to mimic that. They are thin and slightly more dry than traditional chicken, but if you are missing that style of chicken, you’ll like this.
It does come 3 in a pack which we think is great for the price comparing it to other plant based products; however, we always wish there were 4 in a package just because that’s a standard size for families.
Ingredients: Water, Protein Blend (Pea Protein, Soy Protein Concentrate, Wheat Gluten, Pea Hull Fiber, Pea Hull Flour), Sunflower Oil, Contains 2% or Less of: Onion*, Garlic*, Spice, Natural Flavor, Yeast Extract, Salt, Sugar, Citric Acid, Vitamin and Mineral Blend (Potassium Chloride, Magnesium Sulfate, Niacinamide [Vitamin B3], Zinc Sulfate, Ferric Pyrophosphate [Iron], Thiamine Mononitrate [Vitamin B1], Calcium D-Pantothenate [Vitamin B5], Pyridoxine Hydrochloride [Vitamin B6], Cyanocobalamin [Vitamin B12], Riboflavin [Vitamin B2], Copper Gluconate).

Ozo Plant Based Ground Turkey Review
Thoughts: This was one of our favorite products we tried. It cooked beautifully and was soft and crumbly just like we remembered. We flavored it with a taco seasoning and it was indistinguishable from what we remember ground turkey tasting like.
We did mention in the video that we would be curious if the plant based turkey was “healthier” than the plant based ground beef Ozo offers and traditional ground turkey is thought to be a leaner meat.
It appears the same is true for the plant based version. The plant based ground turkey has fewer calories, half the fat, and slightly more protein. The sodium levels were the same in both products.
Ingredients: Water, Textured Pea Protein Blend (Textured Pea Protein, Pea and Rice Protein Fermented by Shiitake Mycelia, Pea Fiber), Canola Oil, Steamed Chickpea Flour, Contains 2% or less of: Pea Protein Powder, Natural Flavor, Salt, Sugar, Onion*, Tomato*, Carrot*, Garlic*, Turmeric* (Color), Rosemary Extract, Methylcellulose
Allergens: No known allergies.
Ozo Rotisserie Style Plant Based Shredded Chicken Review
Thoughts: This was another of our favorite products. At first it didn’t appear to Larisha that is was very shredded, but once cooked it was. It was soft, tender, and taste as those it had been slow cooked in taste and texture similar to meat based rotisserie chicken.
Overall, we are impressed with this one and could see us using it for a variety of dishes.
Ingredients: Water, Protein Blend (Pea Protein, Soy Protein Concentrate, Wheat Gluten, Pea Hull Fiber, Pea Hull Flour), Sunflower Oil, Contains 2% or Less of: Onion*, Garlic*, Spice, Natural Flavor, Yeast Extract, Salt, Dextrose, Vitamin and Mineral Blend (Potassium Chloride, Magnesium Sulfate, Niacinamide [Vitamin B3], Zinc Sulfate, Ferric Pyrophosphate [Iron], Thiamine Mononitrate [Vitamin B1], Calcium D-Pantothenate [Vitamin B5], Pyridoxine Hydrochloride [Vitamin B6], Cyanocobalamin [Vitamin B12], Riboflavin [Vitamin B2], Copper Gluconate).
Allergens: Soy and Wheat.
Overall we are impressed with the products we were able to try from Ozo Foods. The meatballs being our least favorite, but if it was the only option and we were traveling, we would purchase. The ground turkey and shredded chicken were our favorites.
