Ten “accidentally” vegan products

Did you know that many products found in grocery stores don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients and yet, we had no idea? In fact, they are “accidentally” vegan! Some cookies and condiments may be free of milk, eggs, animal fats or honey, without the “vegan” mention on the packaging.

Here are 10 popular products that are accidentally vegan! For more examples, I invite you to visit PETA’s food list here.

Note that I would not recommend these products because they aren’t necessarily good for your health. Consume them with moderation or, better yet, replace them with less processed food!
