Yes, Oreos do have dairy. Oreo cookies contain milk-based ingredients, including milk fats and dairy-derived ingredients like whey and nonfat milk solids. The cookie crumb portion of an Oreo is made with a combination of wheat flour, sugar, palm and/or canola oil, cocoa, high-fructose corn syrup, baking soda, and salt. The filling of an Oreo contains a combination of sugar, vegetable oil, cocoa, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, lecithin, artificial and natural flavors, and salt. Many varieties of Oreo also contain dairy-based ingredients, such as milk and butter, which are used as a binding agent and to create the creamy, sweet filling.

Are bagels vegan?
No, bagels are not generally considered vegan. Although the traditional ingredients used to make bagels – flour, water, sugar, and yeast – are all vegan, many commercial bakeries and restaurants add ingredients that are not vegan, such as eggs, dairy, honey, l-cysteine, and/or animal-derived enzymes. Therefore, it is important to check the ingredients list before consuming a bagel to determine if it is vegan or not.
I’m Brooke, and I love being vegan. I know all there is to know about the vegan lifestyle, and I love sharing that knowledge with others.
I own a vegan restaurant in Boston, and I love helping people make the switch to a plant-based diet. It’s not always easy, but it’s definitely worth it!
