Burger King no longer shows detailed ingredients of its menu items. I know the mayo contains eggs but you could ask BK to hold the mayo but I'm not sure about patty. Thanks.

Gotta give them a little credit though, considering all the fast food places out there.

It's not vegan as others have said, and as far as I know you have to ask for it to be microwaved to even make sure it's vegetarian.



I'd just avoid burger king altogether if I were you, there's much better places to eat at!

You don't have to ask for it to be nuked here, they just do it. The fries are vegan and if I am going to go to ff place to eat, it will be them or Taco Bell.

Thanks all for the replies and comments. I read somewhere that BK changed their veggie patty supplier a few times and was hoping that they no longer use Morningstar or at least switched to a vegan patty.

Here are the ingredients for the veggie burger at Burger King in Canada:



Water, soy protein, hydrogenated palm kernal oil (trans fat free), cellulose gum, salt, modified wheat gluten, soy protein, hydrolyzed soy, wheat & corn protein, flavour, onion, sugar, spices, malt, garlic, beet powder. Contains: wheat, soy.



I *think* it would be vegan. Healthy, maybe not so much, but I had it a few weeks ago and it is ok for a fast food lunch. I was also impressed because they asked if I wanted mayo, which I presume would not be vegan.

No more egg in the patty!! Thanks for this info.



Does anyone know if BK Canada and BK USA use the same veggie patty?

If you read my post toward the beginning of this thread you'll see that they do not. According to the most recent info on the BK (US) website the patty has egg and calcium casienate.

Unfortunately, you are right. I just saw this on the BK-US web site:

If the serving size is truly for 1 serving then the trans fat (by governmental standards) is less than 0.5 grams then BK's Veggie burger and loosely "trans fat free"

Yeah, the canadian one is different and I prefer it way more over the US one. You could also just get a veggie whopped, which is basically a whopped minus the meat.
