Non-Vegan Ingredients


Since eggs normally comes from hens, they are considered non-vegan.


Vegans don’t eat anything that comes from insect either, making honey a unfit ingredient for vegans. The honey is produced by bees and then humans switch it out for sugar. Exploiting insect does not align with veganism.

Questionable Ingredients

Organic Spices

Spices can hold a similar problem as natural flavors, it’s an umbrella term, meaning that it often consists of several ingredients. The problem with this is that it could contain ingredients derived from animals and all you would see on the ingredients label is spices.

When it comes to the spices in Primal Kitchen products, they are very unlikely to be non-vegan because so many flavors are labeled vegan.


It’s amazing that so many products of Primal Kitchen are vegan-friendly. The best part is that they are labeled vegan at their website, making it very easy to find them. While almost all flavors of mayo contains eggs, they made two vegan-friendly flavors, which I personally will add to my shopping list.

Thanks for reading, take care!
