About This Brand

Louisville Vegan Jerky Company was started in my home kitchen back in 2012. Having spent some time in Oahu as a child, I was craving manapua one night and decided I would try to create a vegetarian version. Typically manapua is made by stuffing char sui (bbq pork) into a sweet dough and steaming it. I got an old recipe for the char sui from my mother and decided to bake the soy protein I was using instead of sauteing it. I was busy trying to get the dough ready and chatting with roommates when the smell of bbq hit my nose. I realized I didn't set a timer. I ran into the kitchen grabbing the baking sheet out as quick as I could only to find overdone faux char sui. I was going to make another attempt from scratch when I decided I'd try the burnt char sui anyways. I couldn't believe it, it was the worst char sui I'd ever had, but the best vegan jerky in the world! I scooped up what was on the tray, put the new jerky creation into ziplock bags and went to my favorite local bar...

Pretty tasty

Love the flavor of this "jerky" and reach for it when I'm craving something salty. Hits the spot!

- Ashley Bernatchez

Best Jerky

I gave this to my meat eater friends as if it were jerky and they LOVED it! Could not tell it wasn't actually meat

- Stacy


I've been vegetarian my whole life so I can't say that I know what jerky tastes like normally, but this is what I'd imagine it to be like and without nasty ingredients, what a treat!

To try something new

I was never a fan of jerky but i thought "why not try the vegan one?...welp let's just say I didn't like it either. But I gave some to my co workers and friends, a few did like it. So I guess it's based on each person but for me It was ehh...or rather I didn't like it at all.

I've found out I didn't like beef jerky or vegan jerky - who would had known?

Can fool a meat eater

I haven't had jerky in probably 5+ years. We were on a road trip, and my mom was eating some beef jerky. It smelled so good, and I always loved the flavor of jerky, just not the fact that it was made from animals (she was eating the beef jerky as we were driving past a pasture with cows). When we got to our location, I got my vegan jerky out. It was absolutely delicious and had all the flavors I missed, without coming from an animal, and without having the tough parts you have to chew and chew. I could have given this to my dad and he probably would have thought it was real jerky. SO delicious you could convert a beef jerky lover!

- Jennifer


They're delicious!!

- Virginia Rasberry

Seriously taste just like 'real' jerky

I am extremely impressed... cannot believe it's vegan...


Great vegan jerky!

Wow! As a vegan I now have a jerky I can eat. A bit high in salt and a bit pricy, but nice for a vegan, high protein snack that you can take with you on the run.

- Steve

Who needs beef?

I'm a vegan and my husband is a meat eater. He loves this stuff. Tastes like the real thing without having to strain yourself to rip into it.

- Laura

Carnivores even love it!

This jerky is delicious. My carnivorous son and husband finish thus off as soon as we get it. Have to hide a bag for myself!

- Lori

Vegan Soy Jerky

Did not care for the spongey texture of this product. Didn't really get any maple flavor.

- Luna

Pleasantly Surprised!

I have tried several vegan jerky products before, and whether is was the flavor, texture, or both, I never found one that I like. Until now... This jerky is amazing! I wasn't sure what to expect, but the flavor and texture combo is great. I can't wait to try other flavors!

- Stephanie

Best Jerky Ever!

I love this vegan jerky. I have tried them all and this is my favorite by far. I love all the flavors but especially this one. It is unique and so very tasty. The price here is the best as well!

- Jan


It's nice to have finally found a vegan substitute - this stuff is AMAZING! A must try for ANY jerky lover out there (meat eaters included). Can't wait to try the other flavors.

- Rebecca

Not very mapley or bacony

Good flavor but couldn't taste bacon or maple, but still good.

- Susan Barrons


Very good vegan jerky! Texture and flavor are on point, and all my meat eating friends liked it too!

- Tamara

a million times better than i was expecting!

this is so good! i really thought these might be gross when i saw them but i wanted to try, just in case. i'm so glad i did. i love them! i can't stop eating them. i'm definitely ordering more and going to try the other flavors. i've been vegetarian for eight years so i may not remember acurately what beef jerky tasted like... but, as far as i can tell, it's really close! and it's not impossibly chewy (one of the reasons i hated beef jerky). definitely give these a try!

- kyledawn


I am addicted to beef jerky, especially jerky with a good balance of salty and sweet. This VEGAN alternative knocks it out of the park. Amazing flavor and texture. This hits the "nugget" style jerky texture on the head.
