Allergen-free Asherah's Gourmet vegan burgers debut at Whole Foods

Vegans who suffer from gluten intolerance and other food allergies can rejoice! A new allergen-free veggie burger has found its way to the shelves at Whole Foods.

Asherah's Gourmet, a company based out of Pennsylvania, has produced a new, healthy alternative to burgers. Vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike can enjoy the new patty, which is guaranteed to be free of the common allergens. Quinoa is the main ingredient, making these veggie burgers completely vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, and delicious.

The burgers are offered in two different varieties, original and chipotle.

They are available in 58 Whole Foods Market stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, Washington D.C., Ohio, and Kentucky, as well as at local health stores and restaurants.
