Rather than replicating a classic burger in a vegan form, Vegusto developed a tomato burger that captures some of the most loved Mediterranean flavors.
The bright red patty is an indicator that tomato is a main ingredient that's also paired with a variety of plant-based ingredients, from almonds and rice starch to wheat fibers. This composition makes the vegan burger high in protein and an ideal alternative for those looking for a healthy take on an animal burger. The versatile tomato burger patty can be grilled, fried or even crumbled and served in a taco or salad.
Now that there is growing interest in the vegan and vegetarian movement, many brands are happy to provide consumers with pre-packaged plant-based foods that are flavorful, convenient and affordable. As well as being cruelty-free, many consumers are drawn to vegan food options for new takes on familiar food products.
