Louisville Vegan Jerky

Vegan Jerky is Going to be HUGE in 2019

by | December 14, 2018

Vegan Jerky is going to be the hottest thing since sliced bread in 2019. Traditionally it is made from animal products but 2018 has seen an insurgence of the plant-based version come on the market, and there’s more coming in 2019. There are so many different types on the market, some are made from mushrooms, soy, coconut, and even kelp, just to name a few. They come in all sorts of delicious flavors too, from mesquite barbeque to tandoori, there’s sure to be a jerky for everyone.

Companies to watch out for.

Mighty Bee Jerky Company 

Mighty Bee has released a range made from dehydrated Thai coconuts. They carry the usual Spicy Bbq and Teriyaki flavors and thankfully for fully fledged chocoholics like myself they also have Chocolate Hazlenut jerky. Seriously, I’m going to order this for myself today. Mighty Bee coconut jerky is available for purchase on their website and in select stores in the U.K.

I’m really looking forward to trying out a few of these, and I can’t wait to see what other types hit the market next year.
