Just yesterday I was out with a veg friend of mine who told me:
‘I have a colleague that just went veg about a month ago and now she wants to convert everyone! More people are joining us!’
Indeed, no matter how much sceptics try to prove otherwise, the number of people waking up to the truth is growing by the minute.
Inevitably, the rise of vegan options and innovative products and startups are driving this change! The more vegan options and alternatives people notice, as they go for their usual grocery shopping, the more they are being provoked to re-think their choices and pay more attention to the trend. This may actually get them to do the research and find out why a growing number of the population is becoming vegan!
This is why I am excited to present to you a few such new and innovative vegan products!
1. Inspiral Kale-Os Sweet Chilli & Mint Kale Crisps
Inspiral Kale-Os Sweet Chilli & Mint Kale Crisps are described as organic green kale leaves with fresh mint, cayenne chili and olive oil dressing. The snack raw is dried at low temperatures and made with cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. It is free from nuts, gluten, trans fat, and acrylamide, contains no pesticide residue as it is totally organic, and features a lighter crisp. The snack provides one of the five-a-day portions of vegetables and is suitable for vegans, paleo diets and is made using 100% renewable electricity.
“This raw snack consists of flavored dried kale leaves. They are flavored with fresh mint, cayenne, and olive oil, and is positioned as providing one serving of vegetables. In addition, the bag is compostable.”

2. Wild Thing Luomu Raaka
Wild Thing Luomu Raaka Paleopatukka Marjat Ja Siemenet (Berries & Seeds Organic Paleo Raw Bar) is described as a pure, healthy and delicious snack. The raw vegan product is gluten-free.
“Raw foods continue to appear in the marketplace. Here, raw is combined with Paleo values, providing a vegan, gluten-free snack bar.”
Le Grand Classik Hummus is a vegan product made with natural ingredients and contains no gluten, GMO, added sugar, cholesterol or preservatives.
“Here, hummus appears in a package that is unusual for the category — a flexible stand-up pouch. The product itself has no added sugar or preservatives.”

4. Barilla Pronto Penne
This is an enriched pasta that claims easy preparation with one pan, no waiting for water to boil and no draining required. The kosher product is said to provide “Al Dente” perfection in minutes.
“This pasta does not require a pot of boiling water for prep—consumers add the dry pasta to a skillet with liquids and other ingredients, and simmer briefly. The water is absorbed and the pasta cooks in the pan. It is a concept that was originally developed for the Chinese market.”
5. H-E-B Souper Fruit Sea-Buckthorn, Apricot & Apple Cold Soup
This awesome product is made with whole berries. This vegan product is gluten- and sodium-free and low in fat. This cold fruit soup has light sour rustic berry note and an apricot and sweet apple finish. It is an excellent source of fiber and vitamin C.
“This cold soup could also be seen as a fruit flavored smoothie drink. Several flavors are offered; they often use fruit combinations more likely to be found in Scandinavia. The drinks are imported from Finland.”
