I am slowly attempting to go vegan, and I was wondering which bread companies are fully vegan. (For instance, is Dempster's?) And also, while browsing through some topics I read that some vegans here eat at subway, except they ask for no cheese. Is Subway bread vegan? Which other sub places are vegan? (Mr. Sub?) Sorry if I'm sounding very ignorant.

I don't know-I have never eaten at subway.plus, some bread(or food in general) companies have vegan and non-vegan products. for instance, Alvarado street bread has a few vegan varieties and a few with honey-none with dairy AFAIK.



when I first went vegan i spent an entire day e-mailing companies of foods and products I consistantly used to determine they were vegan. I suggest you do the same. : )

The only bread at Subway that is fully vegan is the White Italian. The wheat bread is vegan unless you avoid honey. At least in the US.



I haven't heard of the other places you mentioned. Many chain restaurants have ingredient listings on their website.

I was wondering this too. I emailed Mr. Sub about ingredients and never got a response.



I don't eat at one of the Subway's here now because of an incident happening twice there (it's in a mall food court), where I explained that I was vegan and explained what veganisim was, and asked for ingredients, but they refused to show them saying "the bread is vegan, there's no meat in it" and I repeatedly ask saying "I'm talking about animal-derived ingredients, not just meat, I know there isn't meat" gets cut off with "there's no meat in the bread so it's okay", and so I say again "but that's not the only animal ingredients, there's eggs, milk ingredients, hone-" gets cut off again "it's vegan, bread never contains milk or eggs" so I reply "yes most of them do" and once again I get a "it's vegan, bread doesn't have meat or milk" and she keeps repeating this crap no matter how many times I ask to see the ingredients, so I leave and go to a different part of the food court.



I can't stand when I can't get ingredients from places. It should be the law that all ingredients HAVE to be available at resteraunts (imagine if ingredients in the future are colour-coded to say whether an ingredient is animal-derived or plant-derived, that would be awesome)



So yeah, if anyone knows what breads are vegan in Subway, and Mr. Sub, I would like to know too.

I'd like to second that advice. When in doubt about ingredients, I strongly suggest getting your information directly from the company itself. That's the surest way to find out about their products & ingredients. http://subway.com/subwayroot/MenuNut...gredients.aspx

Mr. Subb has poor subs compared to Subway IMO. There has been a lot of talk around here about Subway's bread, I'd suggest doing a search for "subway" you'll have more info than you wanted.



As far as store bought, you'd have to check the labels. My health food store has fresh baked bread that I used to LOVE to get that were vegan. (so good) I'd recommend that approach over storebought bread because it's tastey and you don't have to sit around for 10 minutes wondering what half the ingredents are.



I got a bread machine for Xmas and so I make my bread at home now.

When I eat at Subway I get the Italian white bread with all veggies plus oil and vinegar dressing. I'm pretty sure that this bread is the only vegan bread they have.

Yep, check the above site, under the FAQs...



"Do your breads contain animal products?



SUBWAY® Italian bread contains no animal-derived ingredients. The wheat bread and deli roll contain honey, which may be considered an animal-derived ingredient. The Parmesan Oregano and other cheese-topped breads do contain milk-derived ingredients.



What menu items at SUBWAY® restaurants are vegan/do not contain animal-derived ingredients?



The menu items that do not contain any animal-derived ingredients are the Veggie Delite® on Italian bread and the Veggie Delite® salad. Also these individual items also do not contain animal-derived ingredients: all vegetables, oil, vinegar, mustard, sweet onion sauce and Fruizle. The wheat bread and deli roll contain honey but no other animal-derived ingredients.



Do any of your breads contain milk/milk-derived ingredients?



Only the breads that contain a cheese topping like the Parmesan Oregano bread."
