One of the most common fears people have about becoming vegan is they think that they have to give up bread. After all, isn't it made with ingredients like eggs, butter, and milk?
You may be surprised to learn that often, bread is made without those ingredients. There are plenty of vegan-friendly bread options.
Here's a list of some of the best vegan bread brands.
OUR #1 RATED
Casabi Casabe Artisan Bread (Editor's Choice)
The Casabi Casabe artisan flatbread is as simple and straightforward as it gets. It’s made from cassava or yucca root and nothing else.
You can use it as a pizza ‘dough’ or eat it as it is for snacks. Personally, I like it best with some vegan cheese or pesto dip.
The thing that might turn you off about this is that it’s not ready to eat. You need to bake it with your preferred herbs for flavor.
I usually drizzle a dash of olive oil and salt, place it in my oven for about 10 minutes, and I got a crispy, tasty, and healthy snack ready.
CONS 2. Organic Bread of Heaven Healthy White Sandwich Bread
This bread is certified vegan, so you don't have to worry about any hidden animal ingredients. However, it's made from unbleached wheat flour, so it's not an option for gluten-free people.
I enjoyed the soft and fluffy texture of this bread. It tasted just like any other white bread, so I think it's a great vegan alternative.
The one problem I have is that the nutrition label online wasn't legible even after I zoomed in.
I always like to know what's in a product before I buy it, so it was an inconvenience.
CONS 3. Mestemacher Power Bread
This vegan bread from Mestemacher is yeast-free, which means that it’s level 5 vegan approved.
It’s high in fiber and low in fat, making it a good meal replacement for those who are trying to lose weight.
It’s made from sunflower, flax, and pumpkin seeds, and it does taste a little seed-y, which you may or may not like.
I find that the texture is too soft, almost soggy. But a quick toast will do the trick.
CONS 4. Yez! Artisan Keto Bread
I became a fan of Yez! Bread when I read their ingredient list and was able to pronounce everything on the list.
This bread is baked to ship, which means you are getting fresh bread shipped to your door, and it shows in the taste.
Unlike other vegan bread brands, this has the same texture and taste you would expect from other rustic and full-grain bread.
The one problem I had with this bread is that the loaf is not pre-sliced.
CONS 5. New Grains Vegan Sandwich Bread
This is a wholesome bread that the family can enjoy, as it is vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and peanut-free. It’s made from whole grain and oat flour.
Note though, that this contains yeast, which some vegans may consider not appropriate to the diet.
Despite being gluten-free, this bread’s flavor is one of the best.
The texture is just like regular white bread, but the taste is something else -- it’s surely delicious.
CONS 6. Katz Gluten Free Egg Free Bread
Katz prides themselves on their egg-free bread. They use gluten-free flour to make it, and they ensure their product is also dairy-free, peanuts-free, and soy-free.
It's soft with a little bit of sweetness to it. It also has chia and flax seeds, which makes this bread packed with nutrients.
However, a closer inspection of the ingredients shows that honey is in the bread.
Depending on how strict you are, this may not meet your vegan standards.
CONS How to Easily Identify Vegan Brands
Some brands claim they are vegan-certified, but you should always double-check the ingredient list. They might list ingredients like honey, which is not suitable for vegans.
Bread like brioche or challah is more likely to be made with eggs or butter. Any bread that is soft and enriched is the highest non-vegan offenders.
You should always double-check the label before purchasing.
Is it Healthier to Eat Gluten-Free Bread?
There's also not much evidence that a gluten-free diet offers any health benefits.
However, there are still some gluten-free options to consider that still offer some nutrition. Some good choices include amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, teff, millet, corn, and rice. They contain protein, fiber, and many nutrients like niacin, iron, folate, and more.

If I’d recommend a good vegan bread, it’s the Casabi artisan bread. It’s simple, straightforward, vegan, and packed with nutritional value.
I was also happy with the amount of nutrients because it’s practically pure fiber without any unnecessary sugars or fats. I expected such a nutrient-packed bread to not taste great, but it has a sweet yet sublt flavor. The crisp texture is lovely for dipping.
