Is Sugar Vegan?
The question of sugar’s vegan-ness is one that usually comes from the already vegan-conscious- because what non-vegan is checking into the potential animal ingredients in seemingly un-animally things, really? Well the answer to this question is more complicated than a simple yes or no as it depends on a number of factors. One of these is how you define the term “vegan." if you are speaking purely from a food ingredient standpoint then yes sugar is vegan. It does not contain animal products. However, if you're coming at it from a process perspective, then most commercial cane sugar is not vegan.
