They’re Made From Corn Flour

Arepas are made from corn flour so they’re naturally vegetarian and vegan. You don’t have to make any adjustments to the recipe, and when you purchase the arepas from Viida Market, you can even choose from different flavors. We have both the traditional arepa blanca as well as our arepa verde which includes parsley, lime, and cilantro. No matter which type of arepa you choose, you can enjoy them guilt-free as they never contain any animal products.
