Vegan Snacks Introduced by Leading Airline

Virgin Atlantic have announced their first 100 per cent vegan snack offering aboard all their flights - available now - in individual portion pack size.

The Boostball, Maple and Cinnamon Roll protein ball has been added to Virgin's onboard offering as the demand for plant-based food grows.

The number of vegans in Britain has risen by more than 360 per cent over the past decade, resulting in airlines having to adapt their on-board offerings to meet demands. Made using just seven natural ingredients, each Boostball provides a well-balanced ratio of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats.

Virgin Atlantic passengers can now enjoy a healthier, more natural alternative to the typical on-board sweet snacks, which are often far less nutritionally balanced.

Mark Nunn, Senior Manager of Inflight Services, Food and Beverage at Virgin Atlantic said: “We are delighted to work with Boostball to launch onboard a new tasty product that offers our customers a healthy nutritious alternative snack, it gives even more options to the growing numbers of customers that have specific dietary needs.”

Steve Bessant, Nutritional Coach and Co-Founder of Boostball said: “Boostballs are a great alternative to your average sweet snack. They contain only real wholefood ingredients, so you know you’re not getting any nasty additives or refined sugars. They’re also a source of natural vitamins, minerals and fibre, as well as being high in protein - making them nourishing, filling and nutritionally balanced.”
