Uchi Café’s Natural Roll Cake and Almost-Chicken Nuggets for a Healthy Twist

Natural Lawson, a Lawson convenience store branch offering health and earth-friendly items introduces two new delectable snacks, including the Uchi Café Natural Roll Cake made with roasted wheat flour, soy milk, and oats, and the Almost-Chicken Nuggets, a snack replacing chicken with coarsely textured soy protein. These offerings are available at Natural Lawson stores in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, and Saitama since Nov 15, 2023.

Please note:

The term “plant-based food” in the press release refers to items such as the Natural Roll Cake, made without animal-derived ingredients up to the primary raw materials. The Almost-Chicken Nuggets contain some egg and dairy components as mentioned in the release.

Clarification on plant-based food

According to Japan’s Consumer Affairs Agency, plant-based foods are those primarily made from plant-derived ingredients, excluding animal products. Even if animal-derived additives are present, if the main ingredients are plant-based, the product falls under the category of “plant-based food.”
