As always I’ve highlighted the ingredients that we need to take a closer look at.
Since the milk comes from grass fed cows, this ingredient is not vegan-friendly.
It’s too bad that no Kerrygold products are vegan. The reason for this is that they use milk and has no vegan alternatives. Luckily for vegans there are many brands that offer vegan products such as Becel, Flora and more.
Thanks for reading, take care!
