Product: Sanitarium Vege Delights Not Burgers

Sanitarium, who are better known for making cereal’s like Wheat Bix, also make vegetarian foods. Some are vegan and some aren’t mostly due to the use of egg white as a binder in items like their bacon style slices.

One of their vegan products is the Not Burger, a chicken style burger found in the freezer aisle of most supermarkets. I picked these up on special for under $3 at Coles a few months ago.

The old packaging

4 good size burgers to a pack these are quite good value. The burgers are coated in a bread crumb mix which contains whole sesame seeds which was a pleasant surprise. They hold together well when cooking. i tried both pan frying and baking.

The burgers (frozen)

TextureVery good. The outside isn’t as crispy as they could be, but that may be due to my cooking temperature. The texture of the insides is reminiscent of the standard processed chicken burgers you get everywhere. 4/5

Flavor: Not so good. Again it is very much like the flavor of processed chicken but the flavor is mild and easily overpowered. 2/5

Ready to eat

Overall: Reasonably priced even when not in a special and easy to find but there are other brands that do the same thing with better flavor. 2/5
