What’s Vegan at Trader Joes? A heck of a LOT!
Trader Joe’s has identified products free of all animal products and/or by-products including meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, honey, gelatin, lanolin and confectioner’s glaze with the “V” (for Vegan). But please note, this list is not all-inclusive. They do their best to keep the information as up to date and as accurate as possible, but they also introduce and discontinue products all the time, so keep your eyes open and always read product labels. The list below was updated in August, 2014. However, I just posted a lot of new vegan items from 2016 right —> HERE. TJ’s even has vegan mochi stuffed with sorbet and jam! And a new vegan chili too!
And if you’re looking for seasonal goodies, here’s a Trader Joe’s Vegan Holiday List I just put together for 2016.
