This October, Australians can get their hands on the new Vegie Delights new plant-based Pepperoni.
The new Vegie Delights Pepperoni-Style slices have been released alongside improved versions of the brands’ much-loved Bacon-style rashers and Chicken-style slices.
All products within the range are 100% vegan and Australian-made.
The vegan slices are packed with flavour, provide a good source of B12, protein, and are versatile to use. The slices are perfect as a snack on-the-go or as the star of any plant-based dish!
The range is fortified with essential nutrients such as Iron, Zinc and Vitamin B12. The products have absolutely no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Each product has also received a Health Star Rating of 3.5 or above. This offers a significant improvement compared to animal meat equivalents, with a recent Food Frontier report highlighting how much more nutritious plant-based Bacon products were, noting a sample of meat-based Bacon products averaged only 0.5 of a star – the lowest rating possible.
Dean Epps, General Manager Life Health Foods Australia says the new Pepperoni-style slices were formulated with the sensory experience in mind and have already had a stellar reaction by consumers who have tried them in the first week of launch.
“We’ve already seen consumers get really excited about our new Pepperoni-style slices, particularly when it comes to the flavour and texture. Our product development team, here on the Central Coast, NSW, spent months trialling and perfecting this new recipe and have landed on a formulation that looks and tastes just like the real thing. We’re also rapt to be delivering an easy-peel product, an attribute that has proven a huge challenge for many vegan deli slices, our own included in the past.”
