Greenleaf Foods, owned by Maple Leaf Foods Inc., has launched a line of plant-based breakfast sausages, including the first plant-based breakfast sausage links.

Greenleaf markets its burgers, ground protein, “smart bacon” and “smart dogs” under the Lightlife brand name.

The Breakfast Sausage Links contain no artificial flavors and have significantly less saturated fat than traditional pork sausage, Greenleaf said in a news release.

The company also sells a Plant-Based Apple Maple Breakfast Sausage patty under its Field Roast Grain Meat Co. brand.

They are made without soy or gluten and contain no cholesterol, Greenleaf said.

They are for sale via grocery stores and to foodservice companies.
