It’s a good week to be vegan as three new products have been released on the market, including the long awaited vegan-bon – which is set to change breakast time
As more and more people adopt a plant-based diet, more and more retailers are realising that there’s a real need for vegan-friendly products. Here’s three of the latest vegan product launches, including vegan lattes, vegan croissants and vegan breakfast baps!
Centra has introduced a brand-new vegan range hot from the deli, meaning whether you’re vegan, flexitarian or just having a meat-free day, you can choose from a vegan-bon, a mouth-watering vegan breakfast bap and of course, the classic vegan sausage roll.
The vegan-bon is a vegan take on the infamous jambon. This delicious warm pastry is filled with curried cauliflower and sweet potato and perfect for any time of day. The vegan breakfast bap is a vegan twist on an Irish staple and jam-packed packed with a soya-based vegan sausage, a hash brown, mushrooms and topped off with Ballymaloe Relish. Finally, Centra has re-created the nation’s favourite delicacy to make the ultimate vegan sausage roll, available in small and large varieties.
Breakfast just got sweeter for Dubliners with Carluccio’s new plant-based sourdough croissants that will not only be welcomed by vegans but anyone looking to enjoy the flakiest of pastries with their morning coffee. Freshly baked in-store there’s no need to sacrifice on taste as you can still enjoy that same cloud-like, flaky and buttery taste with these completely plant-based alternatives free from eggs, butter and milk.
The Croissant Vegano (€2.00) is made from a traditional Italian fresh sourdough recipe giving it a tasty and airy lightness, with a sprinkling of cane sugar on top.
New milk alternatives, including soy, coconut and oat milk, will also be available providing the perfect non-dairy accompaniment to your vegan morning treat.
Nestlé launched three plant-based frothy coffees under its iconic Nescafé Gold brand. The almond, oat and coconut lattes (€3.99 for 6) are all certified by the Vegan Society as suitable for people following a vegan diet.
The premium Nescafé Gold non-dairy lattes are the world’s first plant-based soluble coffees mixes and are available exclusively from Tesco until February 2020, after which they will also be available in other retailers across Ireland. Blends of 100% Arabica coffee have been specially crafted to mix perfectly with the plant-based ingredients to create smooth creamy tasting lattes.
The plant-based lattes are being launched first in the Ireland and UK before being rolled out in several markets across Asia, Europe, Latin America and Oceania.
