accidentally vegan food

Who doesn’t love a good surprise, when it comes to our favourite foods? Going vegan people think you have to give up everything and live off grass, which I find amusing. Many items you enjoy, are made vegan! I have compiled a list of accidentally made vegan foods (items that are made without using any animal ingredients; however can still be made in the same factory as non-vegan food.)

If you are allergic to dairy for example it may be advised to avoid eating these items as on packaging of many food items it says “may contain milk” – due to being produced in the same factory. Palm oil is another thing up for discussion, if you are an ethical vegan then you may avoid this. However, as a beginner vegan these foods will help ease you into the lifestyle, as the transition can be a difficult one and you may start having carvings for processed foods etc. These foods can help you feel as though you aren’t missing out on anything.
