Vegan Products to Watch Out for in 2018

Food

As you walk around Natural Products Expo trying all the innovative new vegan products, you get the palpable sense that vegan lifestyles are more prevalent than ever. So many companies are creating products that don't support the cruel meat and dairy industries. Many of the same brands are also thinking about sustainability and health, so it's a win-win-win.


Check out some of the terrific vegan food and beauty products that we discovered at this year's event:

Dairy-Free Yums

Daiya Cheese Sticks

These sticks are unlike anything that you've ever had. They're a must-have in any respectable lunch bag.

Daiya Ice Cream Bars

A picture is worth a thousand words in this case.

Field Roast Chao Dressings and Dips

Field Roast's new dressings come in Caesar, Ranch and Thousand Island flavors. Use them on salads or burgers or as a dip.

Good Planet Foods Dairy Free Cheese

This company is perfecting the taste and texture of nondairy cheese.

Loving Earth Chocolate

This vegan chocolate company is sustainable and fair trade, and it uses non-GMO ingredients. We recommend the mouthwatering creamy chocolate bar.

Miyoko's Kitchen 'Un-Lox Your Dreams' Cream Cheese

The queen of nondairy products strikes again! Miyoko's Kitchen is unveiling new flavors of vegan cream cheese, and they're simply divine.

Violife Mediterranean Style and Just Like Feta Vegan Cheeses

These vegan cheeses might just transport you to a Grecian isle.

Meatless Picks

This isn't the first time that we've sung the praises of this vegan sausage—now go out and try it!

Good Catch Foods Vegan Crab Cakes

Good Catch products are some of our new favorites, and these crab cakes are no exception.

And don't forget about this burger.

Most Unique Product

Convenience Foods

Daiya Burritos

The Santa Fe is extra-cheesy and has a kick of spice! We love it.

Enjoy Life Foods Dipped Banana Protein Bites

Enjoy Life prides itself on creating allergy-friendly snacks. These bites are ready to be thrown in your gym bag. They pack 6 grams of protein and are palm oil–free. Oh, and they're delicious.

Field Roast Chili Mac 'n Chao

This year, Field Roast introduced a version with macaroni pasta instead of penne, and we must say, it's perfect.

Gardein Skillet Meals

Ready-made vegan meals are great for super-busy days when cooking isn't an option.

Beauty Brands

ACURE ORGANICS

ACURE—one of our favorite 100 percent vegan companies—has a new biocellulose mask that's definitely worth a try.

Pacifica

So many items to try, so little time at the expo. From facial masks to hydrating mists, we love that Pacifica's products are 100 percent vegan and available at both Target and Ulta stores.

Of course, these are just a few of the amazing vegan products coming to store shelves near you. Keep an eye out for them, and remember: None of these delicious options would be available if compassionate consumers didn't keep asking for them.

Scotland produced enough power from wind turbines in the first half of 2019, that it could power Scotland twice over. Put another way, it's enough energy to power all of Scotland and most of Northern England, according to the BBC — an impressive step for the United Kingdom, which pledged to be carbon neutral in 30 years.
