Vegan Seastar originated from a collaboration between Vegan XL and the Vegan Junk Food Bar. With this they want to put a delicious and exclusive plantbased fish product on the market with the same taste and texture as real sea fish. These plantbased fish replacements are made on the basis of tapioca starch and glucose from seaweed. They are currently launching the first products: No Tuna & Zalmon.
Vegan Seastar ensures a major breakthrough in the plantbased market with the arrival of the sashimi. Sashimi is known as a traditional Japanese dish made from fresh raw fish, which is cut into thin slices. Vegan Seastar brings a vegetable alternative to the traditional sashimi of non-sustainable and endangered fish such as salmon and tuna.
The sashimi is on the menu of Vegan Junk Food Bar, is sold in consumer packaging at Jumbo Food Market Groningen and is used as an ingredient for daily fresh sushi in the La Place section of the Food Market.
