The red colour is completely natural, resulting from the addition of beetroot in the ingredients.

The Oumph! has proved a hit since its launch in Norway and Sweden four years ago.

Shepherd Neame's head development chef Simon Howlett said: “There is a growing market for vegan burgers, so we decided to put a number of different brands to the test before introducing one on our menu.

"When comparing the nutritional content of the burgers, the Oumph! Burger also scored very highly.”
