Yes, I am a vegan who enjoys Oreos. You know what, all of my vegan friends adore Oreo and believe it to be vegan.
To begin, let me honestly state that Oreo is vegan. Doesn’t that feel like a relief?
In this article, I’ll reveal the truth about our favorite chocolate cookie. We will, of course, answer questions such as whether Oreos are vegan-friendly, which flavors are vegan, whether they are dairy-free, and whether they are plant-based or not.
While the Oreo has been around for over 100 years, it wasn’t until the 1960s that it became one of the most popular cookies in the United States.
Today, Oreos are sold in 100 countries around the world, with some of the most popular flavors in different countries.
For example, in China, the most popular flavor is the green tea Oreo, in Brazil the most popular flavor is the caramel filling and the strawberry & cream filling is popular in Hong Kong.
In the United States, the most popular flavor is the original double stuffed Oreo.
Oreos are one of the world’s most popular cookies, but do you know what’s in them? This here blog post lists the ingredients in Oreos and explains why they’re vegan-friendly. It turns out, there are only nine ingredients in an Oreo:
- high fructose corn syrup
- enriched flour
- vegetable shortening
- leavening agents
- artificial flavor
No animal products, no dairy products, only one artificial ingredient and it’s not even something you should avoid. As a result, Oreos are completely vegan-friendly.
Is Oreo vegan friendly?
Oreos have been part of American culture for over a century. They are a unique treat that is loved by people of all ages. As a vegan, you may be wondering if Oreos are part of a vegan diet.
With everyone from celebrities to your neighbor boasting about their vegan diet, you may be wondering if it’s safe to enjoy your favorite cookie. The short answer? Yes. Oreos are vegan.
The longer answer is, while they don’t contain real animal products, they do contain some dairy ingredients, so they’re not fully vegan. And if you’re wondering if they’re gluten-free, the answer is no.
But Oreos are still a tasty treat for almost everyone. Some of the vegan flavors are Original, Double Stuff, and Birthday Cake. The vegan flavors are Birthday Cake, Golden Oreo Sugar-Free, Peanut Butter, and Mint Creme.
Are Oreos plant-based?
Oreos are undeniably a vegan’s favorite cookie, but not for the reason you think. You’d be hard-pressed to find a non-vegan that actually enjoys the taste of an Oreo since they basically taste like flavored dirt.
The reason vegans and non-vegans alike enjoy Oreos is because they are, as the name suggests, a vegan’s dream come true.
These addictive cookies are actually made out of 100% plant-based ingredients and contain no animal products of any kind.
Is Oreos dairy-free?
Since Oreos’s release in 1912, people have been wondering whether this popular cookie is vegan. The answer has changed over the years. As recently as the 1990s, Oreos contained whey, an animal-derived ingredient.
Today, most Oreos are vegan. Original Oreos are made with whey, but since 2012, Nabisco has produced a dairy-free version that’s sold in limited markets.
Good to know:
Some Oreo flavors contain milk, like most Strawberry-flavored and Double-Stuffed varieties, and the limited-edition Golden Oreo cookie.
You’ll also need to check the ingredients list because some people have reported a reaction to the cookie’s artificial vanilla flavor.
The question of whether Oreos are vegan or not can be a bit of a tricky one to answer.
The cookie itself is vegan since the recipe does not contain any animal products.
However, the question is if it is vegan-friendly or not. Many people in the community believe that Oreos are not vegan because of the fact that they come in contact with non-vegan products when they are being made.
