What is Plant-Based Sausage?
Vegan sausage is made from a combination of plant-based protein (most often soy, vital wheat gluten, or pea protein), spices, and a plant-based casing. This plant-based sausage casing is usually made from water, vegetable glycerin, and a starch. The end result is a plant-based sausage that looks and tastes similar to the real thing!
There are many different vegan sausage brands available today, but these are the best ones that are easy to find. This list only includes plant-based sausage brands that are made for lunch or dinner and not breakfast sausage.
Most of these products are vegan sausage links, but some of these brands offer sausage crumbles, grounds, or slices, and these are included as well.
You can usually find at least one of these brands at all major grocery stores in the US. Specialty health food stores like Whole Foods, Sprouts, and The Fresh Market may have more to choose from. If any brand of plant-based sausage is only sold at select stores, it will be mentioned in the description.
Ingredients are subject to change, so be sure to read the most updated label information before purchasing any of the products on this list.
