Are Nature’s Path Toaster Pastries (“Pop Tarts”) Vegan?

A

Unfortunately, it seems that no flavors of Nature’s Path toaster pastries are vegan.

While they sell some other products that happen to be vegan (like cereal), we’re out of luck here.

I went through the ingredients of all the flavors, and it’s clear that none of them are vegan-friendly.

Non-Vegan Ingredients in Nature’s Path Toaster Pastries

There are 3 main potential issues in the ingredients:

  • Whey protein (in all frosted flavors) – Whey is derived from milk and is never vegan.
  • Honey – Another clearly non-vegan ingredient.
  • Palm oil – Technically vegan, but many vegans don’t eat palm oil, so it may be a problem for you.

Just to show that I’ve been thorough, here’s a list of all the flavors with the problem ingredients in each.

If Nature’s Path releases a new flavor that happens to be vegan, I’ll try to keep this page updated.
