Lobby Morningstar Farms: We Want More Choice in Vegan Sausages!

SuperVegan is proud to lend our support to the efforts of Morningstar Egg Facts, a co-production of Compassion Over Killing and Vegan Outreach. The Kellogg-owned Morningstar Farms has always occupied an odd spot in the world of faux meats. They’re very loud about being “vegetarian,” yet an overwhelming percentage of their products contain egg and dairy. Why not (to use a totally backwards metaphor) kill two birds with one stone and peddle their wares to vegans, too? It’s hard to imagine how formulating the egg whites and sodium caseinate out of the breakfast links would hurt their business.

The Morningstar Egg Facts website offers several methods to contact the Kellogg Company–hopefully if enough people do so, they’ll budge. Pigs will fly before Kellogg’s genuinely cares about the lives of chickens, but let’s make them chase our vegan dollars.

    I hear you Jason. At this moment, though, I feel like giving FieldRoast and May Wah continuous love.

    Ms. Baldwin,

    Thank you for contacting us about the use of eggs in our Morningstar Farms® and Worthington® products. We appreciate the opportunity to explain our position regarding the source of egg ingredients used in our products.

    Our goal is to ensure that consumers have a choice when considering our brands. We currently offer several Morningstar Farms® and Worthington® products that do not contain eggs and are considered vegan. Some of these products are recent additions formulated to reduce our dependence on traditionally sourced eggs. Our Morningstar Farms® vegan products include:

    Meal Starters? Chik’n Strips
    Meal Starters? Steak Strips
    Grillers® Original Vegan Burger
    Meal Starters? Grillers® Recipe Crumbles?
    Meal Starters? Sausage-Style Recipe Crumbles?
    Vegan Burger made with Organic Soy

    In addition, we offer 11 Worthington® products that are made without eggs.

    In the last few weeks, our executives have authorized our team to fully determine the implications of the use of cage-free eggs in our products. As other companies have learned, there are issues of supply, cost and quality. We are also working with our team to make more of our Morningstar Farms products egg free. We recognize that this is a sensitive issue and we are committed to actively exploring how we can use fewer or no caged eggs. We appreciate the information you provided to us. Thank you, again, for your interest in our products.

    Sincerely,

    Samuel Jimenez

    Since then they’ve added milk and/or egg to lots of those listed above. Per website all that’s safe is: https://www.morningstarfarms.com/products/all/vegan
