Las Vegan uses Seitan in as many products as we can. In terms of environmental benefits, Seitan is the product to use. Stemming from Japan originally, it has been an incredibly popular alternative for meat textures in countries such as China, South-Korea and parts of the Middle-East. In contrast to soy-based products, wheat can be cultivated at scale without doing damage to existing ecosystems. This is why Las Vegan makes a statement to use Seitan in as much of our product offering as we can.
The final product is sourced through a careful process of washing off all the starch made from gluten, the main protein of wheat. It results in a beautiful meat textured product that contains around 20-25% protein. When treated correctly during the shaping and cooking process the experience of eating this 100% plant-based product is amazing, for meat and non-meat eaters alike.
