Seitan is quite simply a super healthy, low fat, plant-based, protein-rich food. Although it is made from wheat, seitan has very little in common with flour or bread. It is also known as “wheat meat”, “wheat protein” or “wheat gluten”. When cooked, seitan becomes quite similar to the look and texture of meat making it a popular and cruelty free substitute for vegans, vegetarians or anyone interested in a meat-free diet. Its dense firmness gives it a meat like texture when compared with tofu and tempeh.
Our founders, Nick and Steve, met in 2016 and quickly realised that it was almost impossible to buy seitan online other than pickled in jars. As committed vegans they wanted to do whatever they could to reduce and ultimately eliminate the consumption of animals and animal products by humans and thought that if they could provide a top quality vegan product, some may say “meat replacement”, then they could provide an alternative.
They decided to create a vegan food product that would provide a healthier and cruelty free alternative to existing animal based products and that would blow people’s minds. Nick, a genius in the kitchen, had for some time been experimenting and perfecting the art of producing the most amazing, flavoured & textured, home-made seitan. Steve had been searching for good quality, ready made seitan without much luck and so, the pair saw that they were on to something and, in August 2017, LoveSeitan was born.
