3 Delicious Vegan Jamaican Brands You Need To Try This Summer

Vegan Jamaican Brands To Try This Summer, healthy foods

Imagine this, you are going about your day and suddenly you have that familiar, gnawing feeling not just in your stomach, but it ripples through your entire body. It is a feeling that many Jamaicans experience throughout the day, typically in the early afternoon. You feel for “sumn nice”.

This quintessential Jamaican term describes the feeling of hunger; not the hollowness when your stomach is on “E”, but when you want something light and sweet. Sweet treats are all around us. In our modern society, convenience is everything and a sweet treat can be found in every corner. But with the rise of non-communicable diseases, convenience can become an enemy to our health and well-being. Luckily, there are healthier, vegan options that are just as delicious.

Jamaica is a treasure trove of delicious and healthy food options. From fresh fruits and vegetables to exotic spices and unique herbal blends, the island’s cuisine offers a variety of flavours that are tantalising to the taste buds and packed with essential nutrients. These three vegan Jamaican brands are committed to providing wholesome, healthy products while celebrating the island’s rich culinary heritage.
