10 Accidentally vegan products you did not know about!

Following a vegan diet can be tough sometimes, right? You need a budget as big as a whale, as much time as a jobless person has and the education of an Oxford student. It does seem rather unfair to have to pay more for a lifestyle that benefits both you and the planet. Finding cheap vegan alternatives takes time and effort, especially given the fact that many vegan products are not explicitly labelled as such, and those that have a far scarier price tag!

Considering all this, we have covered 10 unassuming products that are accidentally vegan and can be consumed with no guilt! It will save you lots of time and effort, WE ENSURE.

Stop searching for and relying on ‘vegan’ food labels only. Many products at grocery stores are unintentionally vegan, but have no flashy label on them! So there are way more vegan options to choose from than the ‘free from’ or ‘healthy’ food shelves have to offer.
