Day 404 For Filipino Wannabe-Vegans: Ditch Lucky Me Pancit Canton

Good morning!

If you are a trying hard wannabe vegan like me and sometimes you’re lazy to cook food that you end up cooking instant noodles, then Mi Goreng is for you!

It’s an Indonesian noodles that has a taste of soy and spiciness in it. Unlike the Filipino instant noodles Lucky Me Pancit Canton, Mi Goreng doesn’t have any crustaceans in the ingredients. Mi Goreng has wheat flour, refined palm oil, tapioca starch, salt, acidity regulator and thickener, sugar, flavor enhancer, garlic powder, onion powder, yeast extract, pepper powder, soyabean, spices, sesame oil, chili, water, preservatives, fried onion.

It’s almost the same price as the big Lucky Me Pancit Canton in SM supermarkets or Robinsons supermarkets. This may not be considered whole foods (whole foods are foods that are not processed but not necessarily mean raw) but it gives instant vegan hunger satisfaction for people who aren’t much into the whole food vegan diet.

  1. I’ve found out recently from my Manila Vegans group in Facebook that Indomie Mi Goreng is not VEGAN. They have contacted the team and according to them, their product contains EGG & CHICKEN POWDER . They have a Vegan variant pero it’s not the Mi Goreng but the Mi Sedaap once which is not available in the Philippines. Kindly help to update your post po as to not confuse other Vegans. Thank you and more power!!


  2. I actually have a screen shot here of the response from Indomie Mi Goreng Facebook page that Mi Goreng is not vegan, but I don’t know how to post it in the comment.


  3. If you search in Google as well “mi goreng vegan” the first result from Wikipedia states that it may not be suitable for vegetarian and vegans.


  4. Came across this post in an attempt to check if Lucky Me Pancit Canton is vegan. Aside from it containing the chicken powder/egg. Palm oil is not considered vegan.
