I'm in college and most mornings I need a quick breakfast, so I usually grab a bagel with hummus and black tea with agave nectar and soy milk. The problem is that I'm trying to be vegan, and I'm not exactly sure whether bagels have any eggs or milk or other animal products.

Some do, some don't. Just check the ingredients until you find a brand that's vegan and stick with those.

Sometimes dough conditioners (mono/diglycerides) may be animal-derived.



Methinks you should either buy them from a HFS, or correspond with certain companies to know for sure the sources



Cheers!

Also, check lables. PETA's list has been known to be wrong on occaision and a lot of times items will have different ingredients in different areas so what may be vegan on the West coast might not be on the East coast.



If you posted the ingredients list, I'm sure someone here could tell you if your brand is vegan or not or if there are ingredients you need to verify.

Thanks for letting us know. I didn't think of that.
