The Best Vegan ‘Bacon’ On The Market

by Fabian Jackson

3min read

Whether you’re craving a full English fry-up this Sunday, or a vegan bacon butty is on the cards after a long, cold walk; we’ve put together a list of our favourite plant-based rashers so you can make sure you’re picking up the best stuff.

These are our top picks, but you might just have to try them all to decide for yourself which is the best vegan bacon.

The best vegan bacon

Vegan Cartel

This plant-based bacon is perhaps one of the most deli-like sets of rashers on this list. They’ll be sure to add the fine to your dining

Vegan Cartel is a company who champion the environmental benefits of choosing their plant-based product. From 90% lower carbon and water footprints to 90% less land used and even a 26% higher protein count than pork-based bacon. Plus, it takes less time to cook than making a fresh pot of coffee! Did we forget to mention that it states great too?

THIS isn’t bacon

If you’re in the market for plant-based bacon that really crisps up nicely, then THIS might just be the one for you. They’re soy-based rashers that are high in protein and fortified with vitamin B12 & iron. It’s pretty yummy stuff and they even have a Great Taste Award to prove it.   

Plant Pioneers

Sainsbury’s own plant-based line, Plant Pioneers, has a great tasting vegan bacon now as part of its rapidly growing repertoire. It’s a more affordable option, but this doesn’t compromise anything on flavour.  

Better Nature

These organic tempeh rashes from Better Nature might seem like an initial curveball, but we’re 100% here for it. Tempeh originated from Indonesia and is made from fermented soybeans; it’s full of flavour, protein and fibre as well as being one of our favourite ingredients. So, what’s not to love about tempeh rashers? 

Where can you buy all this great vegan bacon?

Apart from the Plant Pioneers bacon, which is only available from Sainsbury’s, all of our other top picks can be found in most supermarkets and online shops. Follow the links above if in doubt.

All that’s left to do now is decide how much ketchup you’ll be having with them!
