KFC’s New Zero Chicken Burger Isn’t Vegan Or Vegetarian-Friendly — Here’s Why
Is it still worth ordering? We do a taste test.
KFC, the longtime purveyor of fried chicken, is going meatless with its new KFC Zero Chicken Burger. While it’s a chix burger in name, the item has a meat-free mycoprotein (a form of protein derived from fermented fungus) fried ‘chicken’ patty. The mock chook, although vegan, is also still made with KFC’s proprietary 11 herbs and spices recipe.
The burger, which costs $6.55 a la carte and $8.65 with a set meal, is then layered with fresh lettuce, sliced cheddar cheese and dollops of barbecue sauce and mayonnaise.
