The Burger King Veggie Burger, introduced in March of 2002, was the first vegetarian burger sold at any nationwide burger chain. Burger King cooks the burger in a microwave.
The flame-broiled "burger" is made from grains and vegetables (not soy), and is served on a sesame seed roll with shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and reduced-fat mayonnaise.
Vege Society Approved
In UK outlets of Burger King, the BK Veggie was approved by the Vegetarian Society. Subsequently, on the menu boards, a 'Vege society approved' logo was shown next to the item name. The UK burger is also vegan when ordered without mayonnaise or cheese. The U.S., on the other hand, does not make this claim. Burger King Corporation makes no claims on its own that the BK Veggie Burger (or any of its products, for that matter) meet the requirements of a vegan or a vegetarian diet.
The saturated fat content is is less than the chain's original Hamburger, which contains seven grams of fat. It is also less than a Burger King Broiler Chicken Sandwich without mayonnaise, which contains 390 calories. It has far fewer calories than a Burger King Broiler with mayonnaise -- 550 calories.
An added bonus: Since reduced-fat mayonnaise comes on the Veggie Burger, you can also request the reduced fat mayonnaise on any Burger King sandwich.
