“When you cook seitan the taste depends on the spices you use, because seitan does not have much of a taste of its own. Thanks to its firm structure, seitan can be fried, roasted or barbecued, or simply on a pizza. You can find seitan in the cold section of your natural food and health food shops.”

“Seitan is great, I love it. Seitan (pronounced say-tan) is one of the most versatile faux-meat products you’ll ever experience.”

“How seitan tastes depends entirely upon how you flavor it: it’s essentially a sponge for flavor.”

“We heard all about it from our Belgian staff: Bertyn’s seitan is delicious, they told us. And it is true: it’s extraordinarily tasty, authentic seitan – and it’s also completely organic.”

“A large number of Bertyn’s products are not made from wheat, but from spelt – and not just any spelt, but Oberkülmer Rotkorn original spelt. The seitan made from wheat is also made from an original variety – Manitoba original wheat. This means it’s an authentic seitan, traditionally made from original grains with a traditional fermented soya sauce. We already love it!”

“Bertyn seitan has an excellent texture and is not rubbery at all – which is sometimes what you get from other seitan-makers.”

“Even if we never manage to convert the world to the vast majority of meat replacements, one product remains decidedly hopeful: the Manitoba wheat and soy sauce-based, traditionally produced seitan manufactured by Bertyn. It brings together the two qualities required if you justifiably want to call a product a ‘meat replacement’: it is pure and natural and very tasty. It is on sale in health food shops, vacuum packed as seitan steak, seitan supreme or in ‘block form’. It is easy to prepare: the seitan is baked, steamed or cooked in a flash because it never requires lengthy cooking times. So from now on no restaurant has a valid excuse for not putting such a vegetarian dish on the menu.”

“I am just back from a week of cooking for a group of beginner yoga teachers. I had never cooked with fresh seitan before and when I was presented with this product I felt rather ill at ease about it. Then I read the simple description on the pack and after baking it on both sides for 2x 5min I ended up with a great looking product which a lot of the participants really enjoyed eating. We were surprised about the intense bite and flavour sensation. After a week of cooking for the participants there was still some seitan left over at the end, so I took a portion home with me. My partner has made delicious rice waffle burgers with curry, onion, salad, pepper and shoots from it. Much better than a lot of the veggie burgers that you find in the shops. It is a truly delicious treat!”

Only purchase authentically made seitan, avoid the stuff that is made from wheat gluten. With seitan our planet is less polluted, there is less cruelty to animals and more respect for life on earth and the balance of nature is retained.
