Have you guys found big jars? We only found small jars at the Colruyt, but I have a feeling that once I taste it I'm gonna need a big jar.

(I bought a jar several days ago and it's not finished yet. Do you think I shall see a doctor?)

Whoohoo! Vegan bagels at the AH! I've avoided buying their bakery bagels because they don't usually list the ingredients and when they do, they don't specify if their emulsifiers are plant-based. Today I checked again, just in case, and they had a full ingredient list, and specified that their emulsifier is soy-based! Wheee!!!

Wooo thanks for the info!!

Yes! I was just complaining about not being able to find bagels!

I checked and the emulsifier info says "soy lecithin, E471", right? These things are NOT the same... E471 = mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids :(

Isn't it the case that pretty much every bread in every supermarket has E471 or E472 in it?

Post subject:  Re: Tasty vegan products in the Low Countries

I don't have the packaging anymore, but read it a few times (because I wasn't sure I could believe my eyes) and I could have sworn it said that the source of the E471 was soy. I thought I checked carefully enough, and I never buy stuff with E471 unless it specifies that it's plant-derived. (The brood at the Dirk does specify this, for example.) I'll be really bummed if my old-lady eyes failed me on this one. :(

A lot of bread does, but not all. I eat AH grof volkoren, allison and allison bio. Most of the Jumbo Goudeerlijk brood is vegan, as well as some breads at Lidl.

My localist toko sells Thai ice cream made by Foco which is three things only: coconut milk, sugar and {fruit} - durian (gross!), coconut {yum!} or mango {triple yum!}. It rivals the amazing coconut based ice cream lepelaar was going on about up-thread.

<3 I couldn't be bothered to read all of them, so for the very few times I actually eat bread, I now know which ones to get. Happy to know this, Bun. Thanks !

Well crepe. My little old lady eyes did deceive me. I didn't see the "en" at the end of "emulgator" and assumed that the E471 was the soy lecithin. :(

Post subject:  Re: Tasty vegan products in the Low Countries

So that means there's no chance the E471 is vegan?

Post subject:  Re: Tasty vegan products in the Low Countries

It could be, but AH is usually very sketchy about the source of their e-numbers. There is this though: http://www.veganisme.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=8350

Might be a good idea to mail AH again to see if someone can confirm that the sketchy numbers are plant-based. I don't eat a lot of bread and I'm not very careful about e-numbers either, so I'm not the right person for the job.

It can be vegan but it's one of those things you'll never know for sure.

DUDES. Verkade has something new... Broskoekjes! They are IDENTICAL to McVitie's fruit shortcake, and I'm 100% sure Verkade bought their recipe. NOM.
