The new “Big Vegan TS” burger includes the “bleeding” Incredible Burger patty made with soy and wheat protein as well as ketchup, mustard, onion, tomato, and lettuce.
With 17 grams of protein per patty, the Big Vegan TS has as much protein as McDonald’s classic beef burgers. It will also be cooked separately from animal products to avoid cross contamination.
According to German news site eKitchen, the Big Vegan TS is one of the 200 products that McDonald’s Germany developed this year, although fewer than a quarter usually ends up in the fast food chain’s locations.
A spokesperson for McDonald’s Germany shared that the Big Vegan TS made it as it provides delicious flavors that the customers expect from the fast food giant.
Other McDonald’s locations also provided more plant-based options this year due to huge vegan demand around the world.
In March, McDonald’s Norway debuted a vegan version of the fast food chain’s popular chicken nuggets, described to be “vegetable-packed” as it made with chickpeas, corn, carrots, cauliflower, potatoes, and onion — all coated in a crunchy vegan breaded outer.
It also recently launched a Vegetarian McFeast burger consisting of breaded bean-based patty topped with cheese, lettuce, onion, pickle, ketchup, mustard, and “McFeast” sauce. It can easily be veganized by omitting cheese.
In January, McDonald’s Sweden launched vegan McFalafel, the country’s very first vegan Happy Meal. The falafel is made with chickpeas and seasoned with garlic, parsley, and cumin.
The four-piece falafel Happy Meal comes alongside one of two dipping sauces: a vegetarian yogurt sauce or a vegan pepper dip.
McDonald’s UK also launched its very first vegan Happy Meal featuring a vegan breaded red pesto goujon wrap served with tomato ketchup and shredded lettuce.
The goujon is made with yellow split peas, red pepper, tomato paste, sundried tomato pesto, sugar, olive oil, herbs and spices, and Arborio rice all wrapped in a tortilla wrap.
McDonald’s new Big Vegan TS will be available for $4.13 and will launch nationwide in Germany on April 29.
