After living in Austria and Germany, I was delighted to see a vegan and vegetarian German brand, Viana (formerly known as Tofutown.com GmbH) at Whole Foods in Portland, Oregon. Viana makes tasty vegan meat alternatives, sausages to go, creamy spreads, and Soyatoo! vegan creams. I tried nearly all of them whilst living in Germany and Austria and it is very awesome to see these products in the U.S. All ingredients are non-GMO verified and USDA organic.
In this post, I am reviewing two Viana’s Veggie Snack Sausages to Go:
• Mild Jumbo
Founded in 1988 in Cologne, Viana is a traditional brand of the company Tofutown.com GmbH. Viana products use “wheat, soybeans and fresh organic vegetables into delicious meat alternatives, tofu products, soy and rice drinks and fine soy creams” (Viana Biography). These products are also found “throughout Europe and even in the Kingdom of Bahrain, and now in North America.”
Picknicker and Mild Jumbo
where to buy
They are available at VeganEssentials.com online. Look for the term “Viana.”
All Viana Veggie Snack Sausages to Go are USDA Organic and GMO-free, plus they have only one year shelf life.
mild jumbo veggie sausage to go
I could taste the smokiness. It is more firm and slightly drier than the Picknicker sausage. It is a great wheat protein and tofu-based sausage to go and a savory snack for the flight and road trips.
Tofu, water, wheat protein, sunflower oil, spices, tomato paste, sea salt, raw cane sugar, maltodextrin, yeast extract, almonds, thickener (carob powder), palm butter, celeraic, mustard and smoke.
Net Wt: 1.76 oz (50 g)
picknicker veggie sausage to go
The Picknicker veggie sausage has more ingredients than the Mild Jumbo, especially with smoked tofu and seaweed extract. This one is our favorite one. It looked like a yummy ‘chorizo-style’ sausage made with smoked tofu and plenty of spices. The texture is similiar to Viana’s vegan meat alternatives. Initially I thought it would taste more like tomatoes due to the reddish color. The flavor is savory and smoked, not too sweet and a bit tart from the ingredient, mustard. It is a very handy snack to go. I remembered bringing them with me on a flight from Germany.
Water, smoked tofu, wheat protein, sunflower oil, tofu, sea salt, spices, raw cane sugar, malt sugar, thickener (seaweed extract and carob powder), almonds, beetroot, maltodextrin, yeast extract, palm butter, celeriac and mustard.
Net Wt: 1.76 oz (50 g)
