What is Vegan Shrimp?

Seafood can be divided into fish, shrimp, shellfish, and squid and other mollusks. Most of the seafood products reflect the Q-tip and fresh taste after cooking.

Vegan shrimp is made from Konjac, seaweed-based hydrocolloids, its look, mouthfeel, and apparently taste like the real shrimp.

The konjac is a good raw material to replicate the texture of seafood, Q texture with some hydrocolloid mix, can achieve a similar texture to squid rolls, or shrimp-like texture. Fish is a bit more complicated, in order to restore the tender texture of the fish requires the addition of soybean protein or other legume proteins.
