Tesco has confirmed that the battered sprouts it is launching for Christmas this year are vegetarian and not vegan.
A host of news outlets, including Plant Based News, erroneously described the product as animal-free. However, this is not the case.

The supermarket has added a host of vegan-friendly options to its 2019 offering, including an Olive & Antipasti Platter (£5) and a twist on a meaty favorite – vegan ‘pigs in blankets’ featuring meat-free sausages wrapped in vegan pastry among other starters.
Mains include the Butternut Squash, Mushroom, and Chestnut Wreath (£4.50), the Sweet Potato & Red Cabbage Christmas Log (£10), a Carrot & Thyme Tarte Tatin (£2.60), and Stuffed Butternut.
Sweet options include the vegan Chocolate Torte, Chocolate Ganache & Coconut Bites (£4), and Free From Truffle Selection (£5).
“We’ve been working hard to make those festive moments simpler and tastier than ever,” Tesco’s Executive Chef Martyn Lee in a press release.
“From providing a wider choice of vegan and Free From products to twists on those must-have Christmas classics.”
