Morningstar Farms, popular international vegetarian and vegan meat company, is known for their easy-to-make breakfast’s, lunches and dinners, and their tasty, yet authentic, meats. Recently, they’ve updated three of their most coveted chicken alternative products and moved them from vegetarian to vegan!
Morningstar Buffalo Wings, Chik’n Nuggets, and Buffalo Chik Patties, which used to contain egg and milk fat, are now perfectly suitable for vegans.
According to the packaging’s labels online, the meats are made from wheat protein and non-GMO soy protein, which gives the meat their tasty textures. With these products, you can easily make a variety of delicious (and harm-free) plant-based meals that the entire family can enjoy.
UK’s Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) released national statistics that show shoppers are increasingly opting to purchase more ethical food options, including plant-based meat alternatives. A report by Mintel analysts earlier this year showed a 92% rise in the number of products labeled as ‘vegan’.
We hope that more vegetarian brands follow in Morningstar’s footsteps!
