Burger King

Order the bean burger without cheese and mayo (check the oil is vegan-friendly).

“Our vegetarian products, which have been endorsed by the British Vegetarian Society, are prepared separately from meat products and there are a number of procedures, specified by BURGER KING® and approved by the British Vegetarian Society, to ensure that no cross contamination take place.

Neither the bun nor the veggie patty contains milk or egg and if you were to remove the cheese and mayonnaise, the burger would not contain any animal ingredients.  However, our products may not be appropriate for a vegan diet as we cannot guarantee a 100% vegan-approved preparation.”
