The Best Vegan Bacon Guide

By KD Angle-Traegner on April 18, 2017

Bacon. We live in a world that is obsessed with it. Its smoky and salty flavor combined with a satisfying crunch can be addicting, it’s no surprise why bacon has a cult-like following. Living vegan doesn’t mean you have to give up the taste-tingling flavor of bacon, there are a plethora of plant alternatives to bacon made from animals.

I put together this vegan bacon guide to help point you in all the delicious directions, and I’m calling it the best vegan guide out there. I know, it’s a bold claim. But this is a bold guide. From tempeh bacon to coconut bacon, to rice paper bacon and bacon-flavored foods, this guide has it all.

Because bacon doesn’t have to, and shouldn’t, come from an animal.

Shopping Guide

It used to be that you could only find vegan bacon in select all-natural grocery stores, but that’s no longer the case. Today, vegan bacon can be found alongside other plant-based meats in the refrigerated section of your local supermarket. There are a variety of flavors, styles, and brands to choose from.
