Just wondering... Does the fact that all profits from Sanitarium go to the Seven Day Adventist Church weigh into your decision to buy or not to by their products, for instance, the Vegie Delight range?

I don't buy much of the veggie delight range now as some of it's not vegan, but when I was veggie it didn't bother me. Even though I dislike religion and think it's nuts that they spend millions building churches with the profits, when I first went veggie, their products were all that was available, so if it wasn't for them I would've had what I consider to be a fairly boring diet. So I don't like to knock them really.

Sanitarium really does help with my vegetarianism with their range of veggie food. I quite like their Veggie Delight range and I usually buy their soymilk. It does not bother me if the profits go to the church.

I don't know anything about their profits going to the church. But i love their veggie delight range, a lot of choice and it's tasty. The only other brand available to me is Frys and Fry's just doesnt cut it for me.

Does it bother you that Gloria Jean's Coffee is owned by a right wing Christian Church (among them are Hillsong and Lighthouse in NSW)?

Sanitarium advocate a veggie lifestyle which is ok by me. Hillsong etc advocate a white Australia where the, gay, poor and non-christian are excluded.

i dont have a problem with the profits going where they go, especially as i dont buy much sanitarium stuff [he he]. most of it isnt vegan friendly.

im the opposite. i prefer frys to sanitarium. i reckon the burgers are wickid. tho, i guess they could be a bit too meaty like for some ppl i guess.

Well the stuff I've tried from Fry's are the frozen Sausages & Veggie Sausage Rolls.

What would you recommend from Fry's?

While I can't eat Frys or Sanitarium burgers (damn gluten) my husband eats Tival schnitzels and loves them. He used to eat Fry's but apparently Tival's are a lot tastier. We found them in Coles. They have burgers, sausages, frankfurts etc too.

Bluebeen, the Fry's sausage products aren't that great, there really really amazing product is the schnitzels and the nuggets. They are incredibly addictive, however they are also quite realistic and I've noticed that does turn some veggies off, which is totally understandable. However my father who's an omni is yet to tell the difference between the Fry's schnitzels and the real ones my mother occasionally gets him.



I've no problem with Sanitarium, considering they were one of the first aussie companies to make prodycts specifically for veggies they have a thumbs up in my book. Plus SDA's generally aren't an overly pushy in your face religion. I have a lot more problems with the link between Gloria Jeans and the incredibly evangelical Christians. And yes I am a Christian myself, I just don't get why people need to shove the religion onto someone else, everyone deserves the chance to make their own choice, not be forced into a religion through fear.

I'm not too keen on imitation meat but will give the schnitzels and the nuggets ago, hopefully my local Franklins store has them (they only have a selection of Fry's products)

I'm thankful to Sanitarium, if their products were off the shelf there would be much left.

Yeh! We could all set one up outside Bunnings for those people who are into home improvements of the alternative kind.

Careful that if you set up a veggie sausage sizzle outside Bunnings you make sure there is a HUGE sign that warns any unsuspecting customers you are taking advantage of that they are vegetarian sausages. God forbid that people might accidentally eat one and enjoy it......and not kill an animal in the process.

Does anybody know if the 'soy protein' in all their tasty fillets etc. is soy protein isolate or just...a friendlier protein?
I just tried these for the first time ever and they're pretty tasty... Mmmm salty 'chicken'....

/ are they alcohol extracted or?

I assume nobody knows this but I always find it weird when frankenfoods just list 'soy and wheat protein' as ingredients because that could be anything...
