Is There A Vegan Fish Sauce Substitute?
It’s safe to assume that almost every fish sauce brand on grocery store shelves actually contains fish (usually anchovies), which is definitely not vegan-friendly. But if you know where to look, you can easily find a Vegan Fish Sauce Substitute!
With these Vegan Fish Sauce Brands, you can make the ultimate plant-based pad thai or add some umami flavoring to your tofu. All of the brands on this list are completely plant-based, so you don’t have to worry about any actual fish ingredients being included.
I’ll let you know where you can buy these vegan fish sauce products, whether that is in a grocery store or online. To see where you can buy them in stores, I’ll link a product locator when available so you can search for stores with your zip code. Plus, I’ll list some of the most popular grocery stores so you can see if any of them are near you! All online retailers that sell the product will be listed in the buy online section.
As always, ingredients can change at any time. Be sure to always read the most up-to-date product labels and allergen warnings, and contact manufacturers with any questions.
Vegan Fish Sauce Brands
If you can find Ocean’s Halo Vegan Fish Sauce, that’s the one you go with. This fish sauce is not only vegan friendly, but also certified organic, soy-free, and made with gluten-free ingredients.
Ocean’s Halo plant-based fish sauce is also one of the easiest to find. Look for it at Whole Foods, Kroger, Albertsons, and other health foods stores. If you need help, use their store locator to find retailers near you that carry their products. You can also just have it shipped to you from Amazon if you can’t find it elsewhere!
24 Vegan is a Viatanaemse- and women-owned brand based in California. 24 vegan fish sauce offers an authentic Vietnamese flavor without any animal products. You can add it to soups, stews, sauces, and more! It is also keto-friendly and made with gluten-free ingredients.
I could not find any in-store retailers that sell this product, but you can buy it from a few online retailers, including buying it directly from their site!
Tofuna Fysh Sauce
Buy Online: Amazon
Produced in Portland, Oregon, Tofuna Fysh sauce is a plant-based fish sauce made with clean ingredients. It’s flavored with ingredients like organic shiitake mushrooms, seaweed, pineapple juice concentrate, and more.
Because it is a specialty product produced in Oregon, you won’t be able to find Tofuna Fysh Sauce at your local grocery store. If you want to give this sauce a try, you can order it from Amazon or another online retailer!
Other Vegan Alternatives to Fish Sauce
The fish sauce brands listed above are the easiest to find and highly rated. However, there are other plant-based fish sauce alternatives that I did not include on this list because they are much more difficult to find or had mixed reviews. These are listed here, and feel free to give them a try if you can buy them near you!
- VFISH: The Fishless Fish Sauce by the Chilli Mash Company is a product made in the UK, and therefore it is harder to find in the US. I saw that you can order this from Amazon in the US; however, many reviewers had complaints about the shipping quality, and only half of the reviews were positive, 5-star reviews. If you live in the UK, try picking up this fishless sauce in person!
- Red Lotus Vegan Fish Sauce is primarily found in Australia, and it is much harder to find in the US. You can probably buy it from various online retailers if you wish, but it is not listed here because I only like to link to well-known and trusted online shops.
