If you're a vegan who wants to try a 'bleeding' burger, I'm suspicious – what's appetising about animal slaughter?

The growing culture is encouraging more people to try a plant-based diet and obviously I’m in favour of that. I’m thrilled about anything that brings us closer to a slaughter-free world.

Still I’m uncomfortable with the growing trend to create vegan versions of every meat product, especially these new burgers that “bleed”. The Beyond Burger, which was launched in Tesco today, contains beetroot juice to ooze what they describe as a delicious blood-like fluid. 

Does that seem weird to anyone else? I went vegan because I’m horrified by animal exploitation, particularly factory farming and animal slaughter.
