Savoury Vege Mince is a Sanitarium product which we found at Coles recently and tonight I tried it. I made spaghetti bolognese with it. It’s vegan friendly, great source of protein, B12, zinc and iron; these are the good things. However, did I like the taste? The answer is no. I used the tin version of this product before and always blamed the tin itself for the metalic taste. However, this one which comes in a plastic pouch has exactly the same taste. Clearly, it has nothing to do with the packaging.
