Power Plant specializes in creating an entirely new kind of plant-based jerky meat from eggplants.
As far as meat substitutes go, eggplant is recognized as one of the best natural alternatives for vegans and vegetarians, because of its texture and ability to hold flavor in the same way that meat can be marinated. Plant Power flavors its eggplant jerky strips to taste like Original Barbecue and Sweet Sriracha. Unlike many meat snacks, eggplant jerky can be touted as an option that's easy on one's digestive system, while also being rich in fiber.
Mushrooms, coconut, banana and even dried watermelon are a few of the other plant-based ingredients that are being used to make alternative jerky snacks for vegans.
