Many people love smoked bacon. Here’s a vegetarian version made with seitan

Bacon is a favourite with many people. It is meat which comes from the sides, belly or back of pigs. It’s preserved by salting, drying or smoking. This process also gives the meat its flavour. In the US and Canada, many subcultures have been built around bacon, by people who simply can’t get enough of it. They create and swap books, videos and recipes. With seitan, you can make delicious smoked bacon which is both vegetarian and vegan. Liquid smoke can be used to give the seitan a smoked flavour, which means it will go perfectly with many other dishes. Use it in sandwiches, salads, tapas or appetisers or on the barbecue. Delicious and full of flavour.

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.”
