Whether you are just starting on a vegan diet or committed to the lifestyle, we have created this vegan bakery guide to help you make choices about cakes, biscuits, breads and other tasty products. With a huge range of vegan products available in our store, we have plenty of advice and tips to pass on.
What bakery items are vegan?
The fact there are many 100% plant-based alternatives to dairy available today mean most baking recipes can be successfully adapted to be free of animal-derived products. You will find vegans tucking into a range of cakes, biscuits, brownies, flapjacks and so on - even donuts! There’s no need to miss out at all. Just remember to check the ingredients of any items carefully. Sometimes animal products such as gelatin and fats aren’t obvious.
Are vegan cakes healthy?
Because vegan cakes often use plant-based alternatives to dairy and low-carb alternatives to animal fats, they can be lower in calories and cholesterol than other options. This isn’t a given and, like all treats, vegan bakery goods probably should be eaten in moderation.
Are vegan bakery goods suitable for diabetics?
Many vegan cakes and other baked goods are suitable for diabetics providing they are low fat, have a low GI index and are aligned with your blood sugar management plans. If in doubt, it was worth getting medical advice.
Where can you buy vegan cakes?
If you’re wondering how to stock up on your favourite vegan bakery goods, there are a range of cakes and other treats available through Planet Organic’s vegan range. You can also get hold of vegan bread, wraps and rolls. There’s no reason to miss out.
