Fast food chain Burger King is launching a plant-based version of its Whopper in the UK - but vegetarians and vegans will not be able to enjoy it. The Rebel Whopper, which is made from soy, lands in Burger King restaurants today (MON) and is aimed at "flexitarians" - people who eat meat but are cutting down on consuming animal products. The patty is not suitable for vegetarians and vegans because it is cooked on the same grill as the restaurant's beef burgers. Burger King marketing director Katie Evans described the new plant-based Whopper as a "game changer". She said: "We wanted our first plant-based Whopper to replicate the indulgence and flame-grilled taste of the real thing as closely as possible, and we're thrilled with the result. We're delighted to satisfy the demand for this highly-anticipated product and finally bring the Rebel to the UK." The patty, made with the Vegetarian Butcher, is served with tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise, ketchup and pickles on a seeded bun. It comes after other chains including McDonald's, Greggs and Subway have launched vegan products, partly in response to the popularity of 'Veganuary', when people go vegan for the month of January. Last year, 250,000 people pledged to go vegan in January. 06 Jan 2020 Pictured: Burger King launches plant based Rebel Whopper in the UK.
