What is Henderson’s Relish or Sauce?

Is Henderson’s relish the same as Worcestershire sauce?

Both Worcestershire or Worcester sauce and Hendersons have very similar flavours. Worcester and Worcestershire sauce are the same as each other, the difference is in name only.

The main difference is that Worcestershire/Worcester sauce contains a small number of anchovies, not enough you can taste I am told but as anchovies are fish this makes it not vegetarian.

Is Henderson’s relish vegetarian?

Yes, it is both vegan and vegetarian. It is also gluten-free and the perfect answer to Worcestershire sauce for vegetarians in recipes from bloody mary to mushroom stroganoff and everything in between.
