Is White Bread Vegan?

I

White bread seems like it could be vegan.

Flour, water, yeast, salt…what else do you need?

While you can make bread with just those ingredients, most white bread is not vegan.

The most common non-vegan ingredients are:

While some brands of white bread in stores are vegan, most are not. Classic White Wonder Bread may be vegan, but it depends on the lecithin and glycerides they use.

Bottom line: If you’re offered white bread at work or a restaurant, you probably shouldn’t take it if you’re vegan. If you really want white bread, read the ingredients list carefully at the grocery store, or learn to make your own (it’s pretty easy).
