The vegan food boom really can’t be stopped—each year, more new and exciting vegan products are launched. We’re always looking to try the next big thing in vegan food, since more options mean more opportunities to prevent animals from suffering on factory farms. Tons of brands are realizing that plants are the future and are creating products that are kind to animals and better for the planet.
Keep an eye out for these vegan products as they hit shelves near you:
New Vegan Cheeses and Milk Products
Violife Mediterranean Style Grill Me! Cheese
This grillable, halloumi-inspired vegan cheese is a favorite in Europe, and Violife is finally bringing it stateside this year. Char it on the grill and top your favorite salad with it, or layer it in a veggie sandwich. Its mild flavor also makes it perfect for marinating in your favorite Greek-style vinaigrette.
Miyoko’s Creamery Liquid Vegan Pizza Mozzarella
Miyoko’s liquid mozzarella is truly a game changer. Simply pour it on top of your favorite crust and watch as it bubbles and browns in the oven just like cow’s milk cheese but without harming cows.
Nature’s Charm Sweetened Condensed Oat Milk
Nature’s Charm already makes a delicious sweetened condensed coconut milk, but this oat milk–based version is another great option for your baking needs.
DUG Potato Milk
Everyone’s favorite spud just became even more versatile. This vegan milk from Swedish brand DUG is available in three options: Original, Unsweetened, and Barista. Why potatoes? They have a mild flavor and are even more sustainable than oats or soy.
Patch Organics Pumpkin Seed Milk
Another new plant-based milk is made from pumpkin seeds, which pack a lot of nutrition and taste delicious.
New Vegan Meat and Seafood Products
Vegan brand Beyond Meat launched its new crispy, juicy vegan chicken tenders in stores and restaurants, and the product is sure to be available in more places soon. The brand also debuted vegan orange chicken at Panda Express, a sell-out collaboration that will definitely lead to further partnerships. We’re looking forward to seeing what Beyond Meat has in store for 2022.
Nature’s Charm Vegan Calamari
Oscar-winning documentary My Octopus Teacher showed just how sensitive and intelligent cephalopods are, and their squid cousins are a lot alike. Instead of eating these individuals, try this vegan calamari from Nature’s Charm. It’s made of king oyster mushrooms that have been marinated in a salty seaweed brine.
In 2021, Seaspiracy helped more people become aware of the truth about the commercial fishing industry, so it makes sense that 2022 would bring more vegan …….
