I'm a new vegan. I'm 15 so I can't order online. I just need to know what vegan cereals there are at the store. I'm pretty sure general mills is out because of the vitamin D3 but what cereals do vegans eat and are readily available. Thanks!

I googled that, because I was used to not think about D3, and now just eat Trader Joes brand of Cheerios (D2).

I found this old veggieboards link:
http://www.veggieboards.com/newvb/sh...akfast-Cereals

Rolled oats are great cold with cinnamon and nuts, and a bit of maple syrup or dried fruit-I love dried cranberries! Just let it sit, even overnight in the fridge.

Welcome!

Its helps if you post your location.
For example Sainburys own brand in the UK label their Vegan cereals. They have Shredded Wheats(plain and with fruit), porridge with Syrup and Weetabix (these are the Sainsburys own brand versions of the big named cereals btw)

VITAMIN D
This is D3 and is from an animal source. A lot of cereals with D3 are on PETA's list of vegan cereals, but that's because they don't want to make veganism look difficult. They include a lot of "mostly" vegan (read: not vegan) stuff on their lists of vegan food.

As for breakfast food, I pretty much stick to oatmeal and fruit. It's hard to go wrong with those.

Ugh...go figure. But you noticed, I didn't actually say it was vegan, I just posted the ingredients figuring someone would come along and clue me in! lol
Thanks!

Special K with red berries is free of vitamin D and appears vegan to me. Oddly enough, plain Special K (sans berries) has whey in it. I get the red berries kind for $2.50 a box and eat it with almond milk. Yum. The vitamin D thing is VERY annoying.

You know, it's amusing to me that I had heard that some of these cereals had D3 added, but never saw it on listed on the nutritional information. I just avoided buying any cereal that I wasn't sure about - despite having the information right at my fingertips. It turns out the fortification is different in Canada!!

Ingredients: Flaked milled corn, sugar/glucose-fructose, malt (corn flour, malted barley), salt, natural colour, bht,
Vitamins and minerals: iron, niacinamide, thiamine hydrochloride, d-calcium pantothenate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, folic acid

I wonder why the fortification is different between the two countries? I want B12 in my cereals! I've never seen one with it.

I am not sure if these are Vegan but, I just got some Barbara's bakery puffins cereal that tastes good and they said that its ok for Vegeterians but not sure about Vegans.
I also get the Alpen or Granola that is by Wheatbix cereals that comes from the UK, Barbara's bakery distributes them in the US. I also have the Annie's Cereals not sure if you know about them. I don't get mainstream cereals now more I get more Organic and Natural and I agree with the bulk if you store has a natural cereal bulk bin that is cheaper.

Oops. I didn't even see that. Thanks for catching it.

I looked at a box of Post Frosted wheat, and NO GELATIN! I used to really like the Mini wheats, but haven't had any for so long I don't want them mow

Post had no dairy, nor vit D either!

Some countries sell "accidentally vegan" versions of cereals with vitamin D. Kashi has a few vegan flavours, as well as a company called Nature's Path.

If you go to Kellogg's site they have tick box that you can click for vegan and they will show you all the products they have that are, such as frosties ;D I believe they are also working towards stabilizing and getting vitamin D from other sources so they can remove the current one from use as well (which is from sheepz wool) I also know weetabix are vegan too (i can only vouch for the normal kind but the other kinds may be too) and i pretty much just use those two personally
Also if you email certain supermarkets such as tesco and ask nicely they may send you a full list of own brand vegan products which of course list any own brand vegan cereal products they sell
