    Biscuits    Noodles Plant Based Milk & Yogurt Snacks

    Veganism is a highly popular global movement that has inspired the food industry at large. This involves having a plant-based diet while avoiding any food that comes from animals. One can enjoy many advantages when becoming vegan. 

    A vegan diet is usually richer in certain nutrients. It can help you to lose weight and stay healthy. It also can lower blood sugar levels and improve kidney function. As a result, it helps to avoid any risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Vegans are also protected from certain types of cancers such as prostate cancer, breast cancer, and colorectal cancer. 

    Sri Lanka has a long history of veganism due to its Buddist heritage and the country is blessed with a healthy climate, rich soil and culture dedicated to improving the goodness of its organic products. 

    The best produce of the food and beverage sector of Sri Lanka comes from the hill country even though farms and plantations are available in almost all parts of the country. The value of these fruits and vegetables is passed onto the food products made using them. Processed food manufacturers of Sri Lanka have introduced many products to their customers who follow a vegan diet.


    Vegan Biscuits

    Biscuits play a major role in the Sri Lankan snack market. It is a daily consumed food item in the country. It is a Sri Lankan habit to have a packet of biscuits among various food items that they carry with them when visiting their friends and relatives. With more health concerns rising regarding the content of most biscuits, vegan biscuits seemed to be a good option for a majority of these consumers. 

    These biscuits do not contain any animal products, instead, they are made using vegetables, and certain types of grains. It has to be noted that the taste factor of these biscuits are unbelievable while they are also present in various flavours with various additives. 

    While major biscuit and snack manufacturers continue the production of these biscuits on a large scale, the inspiration has been captured by new businesses that have established their goals around vegan products. As a result, vegan biscuits from Sri Lanka will soon be well known across the world for their uniqueness
