Most vegans can eat peanut butter made from roasted peanuts, salt, and an oil such as non-hydrogenated vegetable oil, like sunflower or safflower. Depending on individual dietary restrictions, certain brands of peanut butter may also be vegan-friendly if they don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients like whey, honey, or other forms of dairy. Some brands also produce vegan-friendly peanut butter with added chia seeds and other ingredients. When choosing a vegan-friendly peanut butter, it’s important to read the ingredients label to make sure no animal-derived ingredients are present. Additionally, some brands produce peanut-free nut butter spreads made from other plant-based ingredients such as almond, cashew, and sunflower seeds.
Why are Oreos not vegan?
Oreos are not vegan because they contain several animal-derived ingredients, such as whey (a milk protein), milkfat, leather crust, and lactic acid. Additionally, Oreos are often processed with other animal-derived ingredients, such as eggs, which add to their non-vegan status. The oil that is used in the creme filling is also often sourced from animal fat. Furthermore, Oreos are sometimes processed in plants where animal products are present, which can be cross-contaminated with animal-derived products.
Are Oreos actually vegan?
No, Oreos are not vegan. While the contents of the cookies themselves do not contain any animal byproducts, the potential for cross-contamination during the manufacturing process does exist. Oreos are produced in factories that also process animal-derived ingredients, and Oreos may come into contact with these ingredients during the manufacturing process. Additionally, some varieties of Oreos contain milk-derived ingredients, such as milk powder and whey.

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!
