Here’s something that may serve as the perfect partner to enjoy meat-free products that are delicious enough to be enjoyed not just by vegetarians but by all kinds of lifestyle aka picky eaters like me and Coco.
San Miguel Foods released ready to eat frozen food packs of our favorite Pinoy ulam staples during this quarantine period. Thinking also of those with meat-free lifestyle, they recently launched Veega, the very first ever plant-based protein aka meat-free and fully cooked food packs that may serve as their vegetarian line.
Veega is made from plant-based protein ingredients offering a good source of protein, high in fiber and delicious goodness. It uses soy, wheat, mushroom, egg whites and spices as meat substitute and it has no preservatives added.
FYI to those who are not so found of veggies like me. I remember from my son’s Health classes, in our plate, veggies should have the biggest share. In short, Veega can help you have a complete balanced diet. Veega products are high sources of protein containing about 10-16g of protein per 100g serving.
You have 5 meat-free food packs to choose from – nuggets (Php115), meat-free balls (Php99), sausage (Php120), burger patty (Php99) and giniling (Php99). These are all fully cooked, seasoned for your convenience and can be heated straight from the freezer, no need to thaw.
Please note that while Veega is a plant-based product, it is indeed vegetarian, but not vegan since Veega contains egg whites as well. Aside from vegetarians, not much resort to plant-based diets unless it is due to health constraints. Reason might be because of its availability and convenience, especially that not all members of your family practices the same lifestyle. Having Veega in the market could give a push to those who might want to start having a meat-free lifestyle.
You can purchase Veega in selected branches of the following supermarkets nationwide – SM Supermarket, SM Hypermarket, Robinsons Supermarket, Rustans Supermarket, Puregold Price Club, Merkado Supermarket, All Day Supermarket, Ever Supermarket, South Supermarket, Landmark Supermarket, Fishermall Supermarket, Hi-Top Supermarket, Maket-Market, Metro Gaisano Supermarket. It is also available in Shopee (Patty, Nuggets, Giniling, Balls and Sausage) or The Mall
Shelf life: Sausage is 6 months, while the rest are 8 months in the freezer
