Davelaar Jodenkoeken turn out to be vegan! Literally translates as ‘jew cookie’ the story goes in their current form they were first baked by a Jewish baker. But originally created at the end of the 19th century already! They are a typical Dutch cookie and well-known by everyone.
Davelaar informed Vegan Wiki that the vitamin D3 is no longer added although at the moment it still says so on the package. Oh and no worries, that ‘boteraroma’ is synthetic! Find them at various supermarkets.
To eat a healthy vegan diet you don’t need these fake meats / meat alternatives. But sometimes it’s just convenient, or tasty! And wow lately there are so many new products available in the supermarket, a clear sign that the market for vegan food is growing. The following 10 + vleesvervangers became newly available just in the past few months. The future is vegan! Read more
Producer of plant-based dairy products Alpro recently introduced another new product – vegan quark! Although officially called ‘plant-based alternative to quark’ in order not to get sued by evil dairy corporations. They named it Alpro Go On and it’s based on soy. Ideal for yummy desserts or kwarktaart!
In Amsterdam find it at Albert Heijn and Jumbo supermarkets.
Thanks to Gewoon Vegan for the news! Visit this website for an overview of vegan products easily available in Dutch supermarkets. ❤️
With rumours going back to 2013 there’s still no Veganz in Amsterdam! You know the all vegan supermarket one can find in Berlin and other places in Germany. And nowadays even in Czech Republic and Austria. But a month ago Veganz announced it will have a few of its own products (16 to be precise) in some Albert Heijn supermarkets in the Netherlands. In Amsterdam you can find it at the Albert Heijn at Gelderlandplein (Buitenveldert) and Osdorpplein (Osdorp). Disappointment: not all of the 16 products are being sold – at Gelderlandplein none of their chocolate! Hopefully the assortment will improve eventually.
Is it a test for a possible upcoming store? We’ll keep you updated.
Little did I know, but kokosbrood turns out to be a Dutch invention! Translated as ‘coconutbread’, it’s something to put ON TOP OF bread. It usually contains gelatin or sometimes honey or even smashed insects, but now there’s also a vegan version! 🎉 If you’re Dutch you probably ate this as a child so time to get nostalgic.
If you’re never had this before and wonder what the fuck it is. It’s basically grated coconut with starch and heaps of sugar. Packed in slices the same size as a slice of bread.
So the main kokosbrood producer Theunisse created a vegan one, look out for the package which says ‘biologisch glutenvrij’ (organic & glutenfree). At the moment only available at Deen supermarkets, though not all of them. All Amsterdam locations have them except the one at Rijnstraat and the one at Lange Vonder.
Don’t know why I didn’t hear earlier about these things! Almond pastry, perfect if you want to bring something which is easily available and cheap, yet more fancy than cookies. At Jumbo supermarket. There’s actually zero almond in it, it’s made with soy beans, white beans and almond aroma. 😀
In Amsterdam the organic stores usually offer the greatest choice in specific vegan products. Ordinary supermarkets have also a lot to offer, but sometimes you have to know where to find particular products.
Did you know you can find vegan chocolate-hazelnutspread just in the supermarket? The one from brand ‘1 De Beste’ is available in local Dirk van den Broek and Dekamarkt supermarkets. The ‘Markant’ brand is available at Vomar and Coop. The (organic) soy ‘Penotti’ is available at Albert Heijn. Enjoy!
