Bertyn cooks seitan Teriyaki for ‘Brigitte Bardot’ crew

The crew of the ‘Brigitte Bardot’ consists of an average of 10 volunteers. On board only vegan food is consumed. No meat, no fish, no eggs, no dairy, no honey. Out of respect for animals and the eco-system. To give these volunteers of the ‘Brigitte Bardot’ a treat, seitan chef Serge Restiau from Bertyn prepared lunch for Sea Shepherd under the motto: let food be your medicine. From now on, the chef of the ‘Brigitte Bardot’ will cook with extra virgin coconut oil and Amanprana olive oil, use Gula Java (palm sugar from Java) as a sweetener, and drink lovely organic wine and Gula Java Cocoa (a tasty sports drink) and the crew will enjoy Bertyn Seitan.

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is a worldwide independent organisation for the protection of the oceans and sea life for future generations, founded in 1977. To help enforce regulations and protect the oceans and sea life, Sea Shepherd takes direct action in the field. Its current fleet comprises five ships, including the super fast ‘Brigitte Bardot’.

Organic and vegetarian are the future for man and the eco-system

Bertyn is a small company with great ambitions, because organic and vegetarian products are the future. Both for human health and for all animals and eco-systems. Bertyn calls for attention to the oceans. Let us not be blinded by our own short-term interests. Let us make sure our children will be able to enjoy the oceans and a healthy eco-system. ’Leave us a flower and some grass that is still green. Forget just for once how much money a million is’: Louis Neefs. Fish die in the sea, poisoned; the sand on the beaches is polluted with plastic and oil. Whales are driven ashore by sonar rays produced by humans looking for oil, gas or fish, and by military exercises.

What fans say about Bertyn

Bertyn seitan-lover

“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.”
