As always I’ve highlighted the ingredients that we need to take a closer look at.

Non-Vegan Ingredients


Milk ingredients can be found in the Butter Twists flavor and since it’s made from cow’s milk it’s not vegan-friendly.

Questionable Ingredients


There are two popular types of sugar used in candy and snacks. Cane sugar och beet sugar. The latter is always 100% vegan-friendly, but where it comes to cane sugar that’s another story. In order for the cane sugar to fit the product better it needs to be refined.

This is where the problem lies for vegans. In the refining process the cane sugar is also bleached and a common practice is to use bone char from dead cows. Exploiting animals like this in the production process would make it non-vegan according to many vegans.

The source of the sugar is rarely disclosed on the ingredients label, so the only way to be sure is to contact the company and ask.

Corn & Soy

Corn and soy are two of the most common GMO crops in USA. Why can this be a problem for vegans? Well it’s because of the high amount of herbicide needed and this can pollute the surrounding ecosystem and damaging it severely.


Are Bachman Pretzels Vegetarian?

Bachman Pretzels Rolled Rods, Twists, Stix and Thin ‘N Right are suited for all vegetarians, while Bachman Pretzels Butter Twists are only suited for lacto-ovo and lacto vegetarians.
