Eating vegan is easier than ever with these vegan brands.
If you were a vegan in India in 2015, you most likely ate dal and sabzi to fill yourself. With the food and beverage industry increasingly making an attempt to include more vegan options in menus — a plethora of options is now available to compassionate earthlings.
Here is our list of top Indian vegan brand picks:
GoodMylk makes an excellent line of vegan dairy alternatives and its vegan cheese, in particular, has impressed us with how it looks and performs like regular cheese. Founded in 2016 in a home kitchen by a mother-son duo, GoodMylk makes plant-based milk from cashew and oats, along with peanut dahi, vegan mayo, cheese, butter, and paneer.
P. S. -They offer a “Baker’s bundle” for those sweet tooths out there and for the fitness freaks – plant-based protein powder.
2. Blue Tribe
If your Sunday brunch feels incomplete without some Mutton Keema and Pav, fret not for the plant-based mutton keema from Blue Tribe will satisfy all your meat cravings. The alt meat contains almost the same nutritional value as live meat and is free of cholesterol, animal cruelty, and antibiotics. Their plant-based chicken nugget is made up of a blend of protein isolated from soybean and peas, as well as a fibre that helps give it a chicken-like texture.
Whether you are lactose-intolerant or simply looking for non-dairy alternatives, So Good broadly manufactures Almond, Soy, and Protein + Soy Milk. It claims its almond milk has almost 50% lower calories than regular dairy milk. From classic favourites like chocolate, mango, and vanilla to desi flavours like tender coconut and elaichi, SoGood has it all (and at a super affordable price point too!).
4. Wakao Foods
This Jackfruit obsessed food brand offers mouth-watering ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook jackfruit-based products. The best part - all Wakao products have no preservatives with a shelf life of 1 year and require no refrigeration. Ethically sourced and sustainably produced, their jackfruit burger patties are a must-try.
Brownie points – Any purchase supports indigenous agri-practices and fair prices for farmers
