i think you'd need to check with the bakery. there are different sorts- some are deep fried, and are made with a sort of batter, some are baked more like cakes. they do seem to contain some kind of fat though, which could well not be vegetable based, and i think some contain egg too- and i spose could contain milk too. checking would be the best plan.

I wish doughnuts were often vegan. Do they ever not contain butter? Although according to Dunkin' Donuts website, it appears to be possible to find egg-free donuts.

yep! there is an orchard/farm stand in ulster county that has accidentally vegan apple cider donuts. I know that doesn't narrow it down, there are tons and tons over there. I want to say its Weeds Orchards, but I honestly forget! I know I got tons of apples and apple cider there though, their orchard is great.

I have only had one (!) vegan doughnut in almost five years of veganism, and that's because it was from whole foods.

Basic ingredients for doughnuts are eggs, milk, and butter milk.

Donuts are something I really do miss. I tried the "muffins that taste like donuts" from Vegan Vittles and while good, they didn't taste like donuts. Oh well. I'll hardly starve.

Are bagels usually vegan? I'm sorry if that's a stupid question.

Bagels can be but just like bread you have to find out about enzymes and l-cysteine in the dough conditioners.

I must be tired, because I found the fact that they list crustaceans in the allergy index extremely amusing! Can't say I've ever heard of a shrimp fritter or a lobster cruller, but I wouldn't put it past someone to find a way to sneak the ingredients in somewhere.

L-Cysteine is an amino acid. It can be found in virtually everything, it's just more prevalant in feathers.

And why does a plain bagel have to have so many freakin' ingredients?

and a cheaper source of L-Cysteine is:





Human Hair

I refuse to believe that it's cheaper to buy human hair than animal feathers.



Either way

Industrial sources



See also Food safety in China#Soy sauce made from human hair.



At the present time, the cheapest source of material from which food-grade L-cysteine may be purified in high yield is by hydrolysis of human hair. Other sources include feathers and pig bristles.[citations needed]The companies producing cysteine by hydrolysis are located mainly in China. There is some debate as to whether or not consuming L-cysteine derived from human hair constitutes cannibalism. Although many other amino acids were accessible via fermentation for some years, L-cysteine was unavailable until 2001 when German company Wacker Chemie introduced a production route via fermentation (non-human, non-animal origin).



from Wiki.

I have read that it is cheaper because it is obtained from prisoners in China. Gross isn't it...
