Upton’s Naturals’ Updog is the first vegan version of an all-beef hot dog. Smoky, savory, and complete with classic hot dog “snap,” this plant-based frank is made from versatile, wheat-gluten seitan and simple, quality ingredients. Its interior texture is just right (not too firm like some seitan links and not too soft like many soy-based veggie dogs), but what really sets it apart is the product’s innovative algae-based coating and unique curing process. Inspired by Chicago's famous kosher beef dogs, it’s seasoned with Windy City favorites like yellow mustard seed and onion powder. The grill-worthy vegan hot dog, which also serves as a convenient, weeknight meal solution, packs in an excellent source of protein (20g per serving) and a good source of iron and potassium. It’s Non-GMO Certified (NSF), Kosher Certified (CRC), Plant Based Certified, plus completely free of cholesterol, trans fat, added sugars, and artificial flavors.
