In a statement sent to Plant Based News, a spokesperson for said: “As people become increasingly health-conscious and look to cut down their intake of animal products, finding an alternative to their favorite foods can prove a challenge.

“This applies particularly to fish products, as replicating the texture and flavor of fish isn’t easy. Surprisingly, carrot strips soaked in a unique marinade makes an excellent cruelty- and fat-free salmon alternative.

“By following a few simple steps provided with the ingredients, home cooks can turn humble carrots into tasty ‘salmon’ strips perfect on bagels or with vegetables and rice.”
