Nuteena Can
A can of Nuteena, a vegetarian meat analogue made from peanuts, soy, corn, and rice flour

Nuteena was a vegetarian meat analogue made primarily from peanut meal, soy, corn, and rice flour.[1][2] Its recipe was based on Nuttose, which John Harvey Kellogg (whose brother Will Keith Kellogg founded what is now Kellogg's) created in 1896 as the first American meat analog.[3][4][5] Nuteena was especially popular among Seventh-day Adventists, many of whom choose to be vegetarian based on the health message promoted by their church.[6]


Loma Linda Foods, a health food company owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, produced Nuteena starting in 1949.[1] In 1980, Loma Linda Foods was purchased by Worthington Foods, which in turn was purchased by Kellogg's in 1999.[7] Kellogg's discontinued production of Nuteena in 2005[6]
