It’s no secret that Prague is a paradise for vegans when it comes to eating out. Vegans can feast on almost anything their heart desires, including killer vegan desserts.
But what about the other stuff? Where does one go for vegan groceries, home supplies, clothing and shoes, B12, vegan condoms, and vegan menstrual products? Well, turns out there are plenty of places to get vegan products in Prague.
Before I get into all that, here is a bit of info about popular vegan groceries in Prague and the Czech Republic.
- Nutritional Yeast is called: Lahůdkové droždí
- Vital Wheat Gluten is called: Aktivní Lepek, Pšeničný Lepek or Sušený Seitan
- Tofu is: the same as in English
- Tempeh is: the same as in English
- Seitan is: the same as in English, however there is a popular mock meat in the Czech Republic called Robi which is similar. It’s wheat protein mixed with beetroot and spices. It’s delicious, try it.
If you’re reading ingredient labels I suggest using the Google Translate app’s camera function to translate it for you. However, here are few Czech words to look out for.
- Eggs – vejce
- Milk – mléko
- Butter – máslo
- Honey – Miláček
- Yogurt – jogurt
- Cheese – sýry
- Casein – Kasein
- Lactose – laktózu
- Geletin – želatinu
- Lard – sádlo
- Whey – syrovátku
And this is how you say “I am Vegan” in Czech – “Jsem Vegan”. However, don’t be surprised if a waiter or waitress looks at you like you have a horn on your head if you say this to them. Many Czech people, especially outside of Prague, have no idea what it means to be vegan, and even if they have heard the word before they very well may have misconceptions about what it means.
Here are some of the best places to buy vegan products in Prague.
