Doctor invests in plant-based jerky

Meet Rizwan H. Bukhari, M.D., known to his patients as Dr. Riz, a vascular surgeon in the Dallas area who has been in practice for over twenty years. As a plant-based physician, he advocates for a whole food plant-based diet and lifestyle modifications for optimal health. But now he’s taking the next step by becoming an investor in All Y’Alls, a plant-based food company, thereby helping more people to good health. Dr. Riz says, “I am excited to join forces by investing in and becoming All Y’alls Foods medical adviser to help promote and develop healthier alternatives to animal-based products.”

Founded in 2018, All Y’alls offers a line of savory snacks formulated with soy, olive oil and seasonings. Inspired by different regions in Texas, the lineup includes black pepper and sea salt, prickly pear chipotle and prickly pear teriyaki. The brand also introduced crunchy bacon-flavored bits made with soy. A portion of each sale supports an animal sanctuary in Texas.

According to All Y’Alls “Replacing beef jerky is a big goal, but it’s working. By focusing on smart growth and delivering enjoyable bold, uniquely flavored proteins that are better for people, animals and our planet, we are tapping into what consumers want: a great taste that doesn’t harm personal or planetary health.
