The new vegan cooking oils will be the first to be made by Alcon, an Australian company.
The company says it wants to make it easier for people to cook without any chemical additives, which has been the biggest challenge of the vegan industry.
“For the last few years, there’s been a lot of confusion around what vegan cooking is,” Ms Tully said.
“I think that’s where we’re going to be differentiating ourselves from the rest of the industry and helping people with their culinary needs.”
The new oils will not be vegan or gluten free, but they will be gluten-free, soy-free and nut-free.
They are made using a proprietary blend of natural ingredients, which Alcon has named agar, which means “seed”.
Alcon’s new oils contain agar that is the same as soybean oil, but with an added organic component.
Alcon says its oils will contain no preservatives or phthalates.
“Our oils are free of allergens and preservatives, and they will taste like vegetable oils, which we know are good for you and your body,” Ms Poynter said.
Algonquin is the only company to make a fully vegan cooking ingredient.
Its new vegan oils are currently being tested in the US.
The firm says it hopes to launch them in Australia in the next 12 months.
“We know we need to be transparent, so we are really happy to share our new oils and provide you with more information about them,” Ms Tran said.
She said it was a challenging time for the vegan community.
“It’s a really difficult time for many of us,” she said.
Vegan cooking oil has been around for over 20 years.
“The vegan community has come in, they’ve had a positive influence, they’re doing a lot to spread vegan cooking, which is really great,” Ms O’Reilly said.
The new Alcon oils are the first products made using the new agar technology.
The Agar technology is similar to the agar used in the plant-based oils used in many other products.
It is a process that uses heat and pressure to break down cellulose and polymers.
Alcan’s new cooking oils are also the first vegan cooking ingredients to be tested in Australia.
The technology also means there are no preservative or phytases in the oils.
Alcanto’s new plant-powered cooking oils were tested in a test kitchen in March.
“They’re not as pure as some of the others that we have used,” Ms Henshaw said.
“[But] we are making them for the purpose of making a lot more.”
Alcon is also the only firm to offer vegan cooking tips for a vegan diet.
The brand’s vegan cooking recipes include recipes for tofu, quinoa, cauliflower and cauliflower soup, as well as vegan lasagna.
“Alcon has a great vegan cooking recipe, but I think it is the best recipe we’ve made for people who want to try to cook vegan, or for people that want to cook more than a few meals a week,” Ms Kipp said.
