Liquid Smoke - Vegan?
I've got a couple of recipes that call for liquid smoke and after reading the ingredients I'm wondering if it's vegan and too, if the other ingredients are too odd for me. Is there something else that one could use as a substitute?
Thanks in advance.
I don't know of a substitute but I know there are several recipes here on VW that call for it, so at least some brands must be vegan. Check the recipes for things like vegan bacon and meat subs, maybe they will mention a particular brand.
If your recipe calls for paprika, you could use the smoked kind for that taste.
Colgin brand liquid smoke is vegan.
I believe all liquid smoke is vegan; the "smoke" flavor is made by burning wood. I'd read the ingredients to ensure there's no extra non-vegan thing in there.
Why don't you ask the grocery store manager to order it? There are a couple of brands and they are all made with just water and smoke. It is a common supermarket product.
