ICYMI: New Vegan Products From Natural Products Expo You Gotta Try

 New Vegan Products From Natural Products Expo You Gotta Try

If you’ve never heard of Natural Products Expo, you’re in for a treat. It’s a trade show that exhibits food, beauty, and household products with a kazillion cruelty-free and vegan options. We went to Natural Products Expo West, which was held in Anaheim, California, this weekend. We’re still dreaming about the indulgences and wanted to make you totally envious let you share in our delight. The following are just a few of the delicious products we tried:

Miyoko’s Kitchen European Style Cultured VeganButter and Fresh Vegan Mozzarella

It wasn’t just us who loved this vegan butter—Miyoko’s Kitchen won a NEXTY award for it, which is given to the “most progressive, innovative, inspiring and trustworthy products” at the event.

Maybe you saw it, maybe you didn't. If you didn’t, here it is: palm oil-free cultured vegan butter. Coming to a store near you. Yes, rolling out in several Whole Foods regions, as well as independent natural food stores, now. Deliciously creamy, melts in your mouth. #vegan butter photo by @bittersweet__

Miyoko’s Kitchen also wowed us with a vegan fresh mozzarella-style cheese, perfect for a caprese salad.

Daiya Pepperoni Pizza and Salad Dressing

Daiya had a gorgeous booth set up with all the goodies we know and love as well as some new treats. It was tough to stop at just one slice of the brand-new vegan pepperoni pizza, especially drizzled with the company’s new ranch dressing.

Follow Your Heart Parmesan and VeganEgg

Follow Your Heart’s booth was so much fun that we didn’t want to leave! We hung out and shared a mimosa while enjoying a sampling of breakfast treats served by Heather and Jenny from Spork Foods. The quiche, lemon poppyseed muffins, and breakfast burrito showcased Follow Your Hearts’s new gluten- and soy-free products such as tortillas, VeganEgg, and Parmesan cheese.

Come by booth 2494 at #ExpoWest to try some #VeganEgg, in the form of a Sriracha #Vegenaise burrito, a quiche ft our #vegan Parmesan, and lemon poppyseed muffins made with VeganEgg! Come say hi to @sporkfoods who will be here today and tomorrow! #BreakfastAllDay #glutenfree #soyfree

Sir Kensington’s Fabanaise

One of the things we loved most about this expo was the collaboration among all our favorite companies. We tried this new egg-free mayo made with aquafaba (juice from a can of chickpeas) in a Beyond Meat chicken salad sandwich and just want to eat that forever. Fabanaise comes in both classic and chipotle flavors, so all your mayo needs are set.

When forces unite to create the ultimate #chickensalad #sandwich. @beyondmeat #chicken x @sirkensingtons #fabanaise. #vegan #plantbased #beyondmeat #sirkensingtons #newproduct #veganmayo #newproduct #veganfoodshare #vegansofig #naturalproducts #expowest #vegansatexpo #eeeeeats #pretzilla
