Products


The list below is not comprehensive and doesn't cover 'from scratch' ingredients like pure wholegrains, pulses, vegetables etc. However, it is a good introduction to other options from wholesalers and retailers. It's also worth noting that smaller food companies, eg Fry's, are often tastier than the more mainstream ones.

 

Finally, the range of vegan products produced by mainstream food companies grows daily - eg Linda McCartney's range contains far more vegan products than even a couple of years ago and Quorn has also produced a vegan range and has plans to do more.

NOTE. Manufacturers sometimes change ingredients so that a product can be 'de-veganised'! Always check labels.
