Struggling to find vegan foods at the supermarket? There are actually plenty of foods you might not know are vegan. You may have some of them in your kitchen right now, or have been eating them for years!
What are accidentally vegan foods?
Accidentally vegan food is food that was not produced specifically for the vegan market, but happens to be vegan because they do not contain any meat, dairy, eggs or other animal-derived products. Lots of foods you eat every day are accidentally vegan, including many breads, pastas, crackers, and cereals.
You might be surprised to learn some of the following foods are vegan-friendly.
