In the past, if you wanted to eat a meat-substitute product, you would be ‘enjoying’ something that didn’t taste anything like the real thing. Not only would it have been poorly flavored but it would have had an awful, slimy texture to it. Sure, if you really wanted a meat-substitute it would be OK, but it certainly wouldn’t be your first choice of food most of the time. That has all changed. Nowadays, we have meat-replacement products that actually do taste just like the real thing. Let us introduce you to vegan chicken nuggets.
What Are Vegan Nuggets?
Vegan Nuggets is a meat substitute that has been designed to replicate the look, taste, and feel, of an actual chicken nugget as much as they possibly can. They are made mostly from a textured wheat protein, with a few other minor ingredients thrown in to really help to enhance the flavor.
A lot of the people that eat vegan nuggets used to be meat-eaters in the past but have given that all up. However, they still want something that tastes sort-of similar to what they ate in the past while ensuring that no animals are harmed in the creation of their food.
How Can They Taste Just Like the Real Thing?
A lot of people seem to forget that the food experience is just about taste. It isn’t. Food is just as much about the sight and feel too. If you don’t get either of those right, then you are going to end up with something that isn’t really like a chicken nugget.
As we said before, vegan chicken nuggets will be made from a textured wheat protein, as well as a combination of other ingredients. By combining all of this in the right consistency, you will end up with something that is very similar to the texture of chicken. This is a far cry from the meat-substitute products of the past where you would more likely to be tasting something that tastes wet and slimy. Of course, it is this texture that helps to keep people enjoying the product.
These products also look like the real thing. They are perfectly shaped, just like a high-quality chicken nugget.
Of course, flavor is the most important thing here. The manufacturers of vegan products go to huge lengths to try and replicate the flavor as accurately as possible. This is accomplished by using a combination of different natural flavorings. Combine this with the texture of the product, and you would swear that you are eating real chicken when you pop one of these into your mouth.
Many of the best nuggets on the market come in a variety of different flavors too e.g. spicy. This helps to replicate the whole chicken nugget eating experience even more.
What Are The Benefits of Going Vegan?
Sure, the main reason why people go vegan is that they want to help protect animals. However, there are other reasons why you may want to go down this path.
Going vegan is healthy. Since you won’t be eating animal meat, you will be consuming far less fat. You will be consuming far fewer calories. It is no secret that those who lead a vegan lifestyle properly tend to be slimmer and healthier.
Going vegan also benefits the environment. Growing the ingredients used for these products, and shipping them from Point A to Point B, will be far more environmentally friendly than raising chickens.
Vegan products can really taste like real chicken nuggets! There are companies out there that are pouring huge amounts of research into simulating the taste of real chicken nuggets. So, if you are a former meat-eater that craves a good chicken nugget, check these products out. If you are a vegan that has never experienced a chicken nugget, then you may also be interested.
