What bread is vegan?

Question: I am not sure what bread to buy as I heard it's not always vegan. Can you let me know what animal products to look out for in breads?

Answer from Belsandia: You should specifically watch out for whey, as this is cow milk plasma. Along with whey, honey is sometimes used in breads, and many vegans object to honey. Some breads are omega-3 enriched, which could be sourced from fish oil.

If you see emulsifiers listed as ingredients, watch out for E471 and E481 - which could be fatty acids from animals.

Another common byproduct is L-Cysteine or E920 - which is a flour treatment agent made from animal fat or human hair.

As ready-made bread, Ezekiel sprouted wheat bread is a great vegan and low sodium bread, along with other breads you may get at Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Sunflower Market, and other health food stores.

Or look for gluten-free breads, which are often fully vegan too.

I would also look for a bread that contains less sodium, as many sliced breads have massive amounts of this. Sodium should be in maximum 1:1 relation of the calories per serving, so in other words, a bread that has 80 calories by slice should not have more than 80mgr of sodium. This would be ideal for a healthy bread.
