Sabra hummus is a delicious, creamy and nutritious dip that has become increasingly popular in recent years. It is made from simple ingredients like chickpeas, tahini and some spices, making it a healthier alternative to many other dips on the market. But, is Sabra Hummus vegan?
Almost all flavors of Sabra Hummus are vegan because they don’t contain any ingredients sourced from animals. Greek Inspired Hummus is not labeled vegan to their website.

As always I’ve highlighted the ingredients that we need to take a closer look at.
Sugar is a controversial ingredient for vegans because there is a situation where sugar could be classified as non-vegan. Two of the most common sugar types are beet sugar and cane sugar, with the latter being more so used in the candy and snacks industry.
Raw cane sugar is vegan and so is beet sugar, but the cane sugar is often refined to fit products better and in this process the sugar is also bleached. A common method is to use bone char from dead cows and exploiting animals in the production process would make that sugar non-vegan in many vegans eyes.
This ingredient is a tricky one for vegans and the reason for that is because natural flavors is an umbrella term, meaning that it often consists of several ingredients and the source of these ingredients are not disclosed on the ingredients label.
This means that natural flavors could contain ingredients sourced from animals and it would not show on the ingredients label, making it impossible to know if it’s vegan-friendly or not.
Almost all flavors of Sabra hummus are vegan and the only flavors that I’m not sure about is Greek Inspired Hummus because it’s not marked vegan at their website. All the other flavors is labeled vegan on their website.
