So I decided to stretch the legal limits of "Green Monday" today.
My entry is around bread. Where is the meat free bread? In my opinion, anyone who tries not to eat pork or pork by products is challenged most by BREAD and CANDY.
Both often have deceptive labeling and rarely have symbols. So my recent hunt for Kosher (pork free) hot dog size buns lead me to this discovery.
My bread brand of choice is Brownberry/Arnold and in my area there are hoagie rolls but not hotdog size buns. (You can do a zip code search to find products in your area. There are not hot dog buns within 20 mi. !!)
However, I did see a new labeling system on Kroger bread. It said, "vegetarian". So I went online only to find NOTHING about whether they are indeed meat (including pork) free.
So I emailed and got this response:
So, no animal derived ingredients.
