Panera Bread has a decent number of vegan options when it comes to bagels.
The following bagels appear to be vegan-friendly:
- Cranberry Walnut
- Sesame Bagels
The only reason I use the word “appear” is because these bagels have sugar or brown sugar in them.
In North America, some white and brown sugar isn’t vegan because it’s made using bone char.
However, since Panera Bread has mentioned in the past that some of these bagels were vegan, I think it’s a safe assumption that the sugar isn’t an issue and that it hasn’t changed.
If you’d like to be 100% sure, contact their customer service.
Which Bagels Aren’t Vegan
Just for the sake of completeness, I thought I’d quickly highlight why the other bagels are not vegan-friendly.
They all have at least one obviously non-vegan ingredients.
Additionally, most of them contain palm oil, which is a controversial ingredient among vegans.
