March 9-13 marked the 2016 Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California. I wish I could have gone to this event, but because I wasn’t there in person, of course I’ve been following the expo news on social media. From what I’ve seen, it looks like this is yet another great year for vegan food.
The Natural Products Expo West event is an opportunity for natural food and other product companies to showcase their stuff. Since the expo is focused on natural products, many vegan food brands show up to sample their food. Here’s a few of them.
Upton’s Naturals Classic Vegan Burger
Upton’s Naturals serves burgers at their Breakroom restaurant in Chicago.

Upton’s Bar-B-Que and Chili Lime Carnitas Jackfruit
I recently received this product in a Vegan Cuts Snack Box. This is great for meat lovers who want to go vegan or eat more plant-based.
Silk Cashew Milk
Tired of almond milk? Give cashew milk a try.
Miyoko’s Kitchen European Style Cultured VeganButter
Miyoko’s Kitchen won a NEXTY award for their VeganButter product. The award is given to the “most progressive, innovative, inspiring and trustworthy products” at the event.
Beyond Chicken Homestyle Tenders
Hampton Creek just keeps amazing everyone with new Beyond Meat products. This innovative company, which is backed by Bill Gates, has raised the bar on vegan packaged food products. I’d love to try these homestyle “chicken” tenders.
Beyond Meat had a McDonald’s-style booth at the expo.
