Yondu is a completely meat free umami seasoning sauce that brings savoury flavour to food. Although umami is typically associated with animal products, vegetables can also be rich in umami – and so this is the perfect product for Meat Free Monday supporters and anyone moving towards plant-based eating.
Vegan, gluten-free and non-GMO, Yondu is made from organic soybeans, white radish, cabbage, leek, shiitake, garlic and yeast extract. A unique three-month slow fermentation technique is the key to developing Yondu’s deep and balanced flavour from such simple ingredients.
Yondu was created by Sempio Foods which has spearheaded the study and innovation of Korea’s plant-rich cuisine for over 75 years. The company is committed to encouraging a healthy and delicious vegetable-centric diet through its global product range which is uncompromised on quality and taste, available in 70 countries and includes Yondu Vegetable Umami seasoning sauce. Launched in the UK in January 2021, Yondu was recognised as a highly commended vegan cupboard product in the Veggie Awards 2021.
Jaume Biarnes, Director of Yondu Culinary Studio in New York, said: “We are delighted to supporting the Meat Free Monday movement in the UK as we have been in the USA. At Yondu we are passionate about celebrating the #JoyOfVeg as we encourage and celebrate plant-based diets. Yondu is the perfect addition for anyone looking to add more vegetables into their diet and enhance the flavour of their cooking.”
Available via Amazon, retailing at £6.88 for 275 ml and £4.48 for 150 ml, Yondu is a great meat free alternative for bouillon or concentrated stock and can be added to recipes at any stage of the cooking process.
