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

Non-Vegan Ingredients

Honey

Honey is not a vegan-friendly since it’s made by bees and vegans don’t consume anything from the realm of insects either.

Questionable Ingredients

Cane Sugar

Cane sugar is a very controversial ingredient within the vegan community because of the possibility of bone char being used in the production process. Raw cane sugar is always vegan-friendly, but the cane sugar is often refined before used in a product.

In this refining process the sugar is also bleached and the problem here is that the most common bleaching method is to use bone char from dead cows. This does not align with veganism.

Natural Flavors

The next ingredient on our questionable ingredients list is natural flavors. Natural flavors is often a mix of several ingredients and the problem that this causes for vegan is the fact that the source of these ingredients are never disclosed on the ingredients label.

So they could be animal-sourced and just by reading the ingredient would not disclose this. So vegans needs to be careful when it comes to natural flavors and unless the product is labeled vegan then it would be safe for vegans to consume.

Conclusion

Absolutely amazing that so many flavors of Kashi cereals are vegan-friendly. With the vegan movement on the rise so is the number of vegan-friendly products hitting the market, making our lives easier with tasty and healthy foods.

Thanks for reading, take care!
