Vegex® Throughout History

Vegex® was considered not only the perfect form of sustenance for growing children, or those looking to adopt a healthier lifestyle. A Vegex® recipe book from 1923 tells of the “Romance of Vegex®” during World War I. As the story goes, a British Army in Mesopotamia encountered an epidemic related to deficiencies in their food supply. British scientists worked quickly to find out that Vitamin B rich Vegex® would be the perfect food to help the soldiers in trouble. Miraculously, ill and fatigued soldiers began to feel the fortifying affects of this miracle edition to their diets. Fortunately, great-tasting and nutritious Vegex® blends are available to civilians all over the United States, and it continues to add flavor and taste to any dish to this day!
