Marks and Spencer has launched a new vegan and vegetarian range just in time for World Vegan Month this November.
The new vegan and vegetarian range features 13 products including sweetcorn and chickpea burgers (£3.50), beetroot falafel (£4) and sweet potato steak (£2.50).
Even more excitingly, for the first time ever the company are releasing two plant-based soy proteins – Veggie Chunks (£2.20) – which are designed to replace chicken in recipes and Veggie Mince (£2.20) – a tasty alternative to beef mince.
The two soy proteins are exclusive to M&S and an exciting addition to M&S’s increasing vegetarian repertoire. The soy proteins are high in protein, low in calories and also gluten-free.
Katie Squire, M&S product developer said:
“We have been in a mission to find the tastiest plant-based alternatives to meat and we are very excited to be finally launching these products. They have been scientifically developed to replicate meat in terms of taste, texture and even smell, appealing to those taking a ‘flexitarian’ approach to meat reduction for health and ethical/ sustainable reasons.”
