Product review: Tofurky Hot Dogs

Product: Tofurky Frankly Delicious Hot Dogs

Nutrition per 100g: Energy 891 kJ (212 kcal), Protein 23g, Fat 11 g of which saturates 1.1g Carbohydrates 4.3 g of which sugars 2.8 g, Sodium 670 mg

Ingredients: Water, vital wheat gluten, expeller-pressed non-GMO canola oil, pea protein, organic tofu (water, organic soybeans, magnesium chloride, calcium chloride), spices, sea salt, onion powder, organic cane sugar, natural vegan flavors, oat fiber, cargeenan, konjac flour, natural smoke flavor, granulated garlic, wheat starch, paprika and annatto.

What I like about it? This 100% plant-based vegan hot dogs smell exactly like the meat containing counterpart when we were broiling them. Each sausage is roughly 79g and each contains 18g protein, which is quite a bit for one sausage. It is not spicy, unlike some other Tofurky sausages. Now I can even buy this at my local supermarket.

What I don't like about it? It is quite high in sodium and my daughter told me it taste like bread. (However the rest of us think its texture is just fine).

Would I give them to my children? Yes, comparing this to the regular meat containing hot dog, this is much better choice. Although it is quite high in salt so will only give them as an occasional food.
