Plant Power: Smaakt Seitan

The upcoming weeks, plant-based products take center stage here at de Smaakspecialist. People increasingly opt for a (partially) plant-based lifestyle, for the good of their health, animal welfare and the environment.

Smaakt Seitan

It may taste exactly like meat, but don’t be fooled! This protein-rich meat substitute made from wheat gluten is 100% plant-based and thus vegan-friendly. Smaakt Seitan is not only organic, but also completely free from any added sugar, preservatives or artificial flavouring. Delicious in curries, stews of stir-fries! Here’s what we love about seitan and why you should try it too:

  • High protein; a product is a source-of-protein if more than 12% of the energy consist out of protein and protein-rich if this is more than 20%. With seitan, this is 79%!
  • Good for heart and blood vessels; seitan has a high content of betaine, a substance that protects heart and blood vessels.
  • Full of antioxidants; the antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid is amply present in seitan.
  • All essential amino acids; seitan contains all 8 essential amino acids for the human body. Essential amino acids are not made by the body itself and must therefore be obtained from food.
  • Energy; seitan also contains many other amino acids, the BCAAs. In addition to carbohydrates, these BC-amino acids are the most important fuel sources for the human body.
