Burger King is launching a new plant-based range in its UK outlets – with its Vegan Royale Bakon King burger part of the menu.

The fast-food giant, which is working towards becoming 50 per cent plant-based by 2030, will be adding the new items to its menu from January 4.

Other sandwiches on offer include the Plant-Based Bakon King (Single or Double).

While the Vegan Royale Bakon King is fully certified, the eatery notes that its Plant-Based Bakon King is free of animal ingredients, but features a patty which is cooked on the same grill as meat, meaning there is a risk of cross-contamination.

In addition, plant-based diners can tweak the Chicken Royale Bacon King and Bacon King (Single or Double) by replacing the meaty patties with animal-free alternatives, and swapping the cheese and bacon for vegan versions from Violife and La Vie.

    Far cheaper and healthier to make your own soup.

    Yeah I don't like the vegan tax they put on vegan versions of foods either. Just hoping there will be reasonable "offer" prices on these which really is what they should be at RRP

    So the BK one is still not actually suitable for Vegans!

    Indeed, as it's cooked on the same grill as the meat, so only a plastic would eat it. (edited)

    £2 for a tin of baked beans with a few small sausages

    My fear is that vegetarian stuff might get replaced by vegan stuff due to consolidations or whatever money saving excuse.
    I love my dairy stuff too much to give up.

    I think it has been happening for a while.

    However, I dont really see the relevance to these products as they seem to be intending to increase their plant based range where there wasnt that much choice for even vegetarians to begin with.

    Even if they do replace any current option, it's not exactly any authentic dairy original version that you'll be missing out on. Though a bit naff that there's no way of ordering a non-veganising a McPlant patty.

    I appreciate it doesn't quite seem fair when there is only one vegetarian option to begin with and they replace that with some mock-meat vegan one.

    And I do understand that some may complain with regard to the health impact of these vegan products.
