Budget supermarket Aldi has launched vegan burgers – which are said to ‘bleed’ beetroot juice.

The Meat Free Butcher Quarter Pounders, which are said to look and taste like traditional beef burgers, are made from soya protein.

The patties, which took 12 months to develop, cost £2.50 for a pack of two.

The new burgers are just one of a range of vegan products Aldi has added to its shelves in recent weeks. On January 2, the store expanded its plant-based offering significantly.

New own-brand products launched include Rainbow Vegetable Stew (£2.19) and Paleo Wholefood Bars (£1.99, 5 pack).
