The best vegan bacon in Australia
Finding good vegan bacon or facon as it’s often referred to has been a challenge for vegans since the dawn of time. Whilst you once had to chew through tasteless cardboard in order to try and replicate the taste, you can now find a wide selection of alternatives that taste, sizzle, and impress just like the animal alternative.
Getting this category right really matters, as we (the vegan movement) look to replace animal products with ethical alternatives in order to encourage as many people as we can to eat more plant-based foods.
So when we put the vote out to our community, here are the brands that they said they loved. Starting with the crowd favourite New Zealand brand Sunfed Meats!
What they say: Made from a minimal number of clean natural ingredients and 100% non-allergenic (gluten free, soy free, gmo free), Sunfed® products are extremely nutrient dense with a very strong macro and micro nutrient profile for high performance nutrition.
Boasting premium yellow pea protein, Sunfed meats are raw meat cuts that cook, feel and taste just like animal meat but are healthier, both for you and the planet.
