Hong Kong – 7-Eleven, in its effort to keep pace with consumer demand for healthier food choices, has added two vegan-friendly meals from flash-frozen foods brand OmniEat to its range of meal solutions.
In Hong Kong, much like globally, vegan and vegetarian options are growing in popularity in restaurants and are gradually becoming part of people’s lifestyles. However, according to the convenience store chain, such food options are still not very convenient to find, much less, selections that are available around the clock.
The two new additions are the Spicy Thai Basil OmniPork with Jasmine Rice and Thai OmniPork Stir-Fried Noodles. Both dishes are made using OmniPork, a plant-based “pork,” which is much lower in saturated fat and calories than real pork, offering higher levels of fibre, calcium and iron.
The Spicy Thai Basil OmniPork with Jasmine Rice is a combination of high-protein Omnipork and half a cup of mineral-rich vegetables, including basil and asparagus beans, while the Thai OmniPork Stir-Fried Noodles comprises aromatic noodles and a generous helping of Gai Lan, which is rich in iron and calcium.
According to 7-Eleven, the meals contain no cholesterol, are free from antibiotics and hormones, are cruelty-free, and are without preservatives and MSG.
The meals are now available at a special limited offer price of HK$30 per pack.
