Is Bread Vegan?
Most bread is naturally vegan-friendly; but every brand and recipe takes it’s own spin so it’s still important to check the ingredients. Classic sourdough, bagels, pita bread, pizza dough, and beyond is made without any animal ingredients.
Of course there are some breads that are usually made with eggs or milk (think: banana bread, egg bagels, and brioche). Luckily, both store-bought options and recipes have sprouted up making essentially any bread you have you heart set on available to you without animal products.
