There are many breads that are vegan.. I prefer to buy locally made bread, as it has the best chance of being vegan and is the least processed. But I am happy to say, there are a few major brands from the grocery store that are vegan for those of us who just need a loaf in a jiffy 🙂
Here is a quick read that mentions a few brands that have one or more vegan loaves… among those being Arnolds, Cobblestone Mill and Thomas Bagels. Though, like I said, not ALL the products from these companies are vegan. Always check your ingredients. I find that PETA’s “accidentally vegan” list is accurate and really helpful to new vegans!
Also, Natures Own 100% Whole Wheat Bread & also Natures Own 100% Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns are vegan. Only the 100% whole wheat kind though… Natures Own doesn’t use animal products in their dough conditioners, though some of their other loaves contain honey and omega 3’s derived from fish. I found out this information from here.
And of coarse, you can always bake your own bread at home! Don’t be intimidated. I’ts easy. And I admit, I have been majorly slacking on showing off my good-old bread makin’ chops… I need to remedy that by posting a few easy bread recipes. I am aware that we all don’t have a bread machine (which I am fortunate to have) however I rarely use it! I really enjoy the good old bread making process more 🙂
