Arnold Bread, Yogurt, Cream Cheese and Neufchatel Cheese


Bread


Arnold
Arnold Whole Grain Classics 7 Grain Bread and some others (veg) *contains whey
Arnold Whole Grain Classics Healthy Multi-Grain Bread (veg) *does not contain whey
Arnold Stoneground 100% Whole Wheat Bread (vegan)

Awesome!! I called Arnold Bread company at 800-984-0989 and spoke to a representative about the ingredients of the breads. She said that all the ingredients in the bread are vegetarian except for the milk and whey but they are listed in the ingredients so make sure you continue to read the ingredient labels!!
Yogurt


La Yogurt
Plain and Vanilla Flavored-Low fat and Fatfree 32 oz. (veg)
ShopRite Brand
Plain and Vanilla Flavored - Low fat and Fatfree 32 oz. (veg)
Plain flavored - Low fat 8 oz. (veg)
Keyfood Brand
Plain and Vanilla Flavored - Low fat and Fatfree 32 oz. (veg)

As many knows there most yogurt uses gelatin as a stabilizer but from what I know these three do not use gelatin but only for Plain and Vanilla flavored for the 32 oz. However, ShopRite's plain flavored - low fat 8 oz is vegetarian. It does not use gelatin. All the other flavor and sizes do!!! Here is the source for La Yogurt: Johannafoods

Here are the ingredients for:
ShopRite's Plain Flavored - Low fat 32 oz.
ShopRite's Plain Flavored - Fatfree 32 oz.
ShopRite's Vanilla Flavored - Low fat 32 oz.
ShopRite's Vanilla Flavored - Fatfree 32 oz.
ShopRite's Plain Flavored - Low Fat 8 oz.

I currently do not have the links to the Keyfood one but hopefully I'll be able to get them soon.

Cream Cheese and Neufchatel Cheese

Philadelphia
Cream Cheese - block, whipped and soft variety(veg)
Pathmark
Neufchatel Cheese (veg)
KeyFood
Neufchatel Cheese (veg)

According to The Cheese List soft cheese are not made with enzymes and What's in Your Cheese? mentions that Philadelphia Cream cheeses are vegetarian. Vegetarian Times also stated that most soft cheese uses vegetable or microbial enzyme. If you look closely at the pictures below, both neufchatel cheeses are Dairy Kosher, meaning it can not contain anything derived from meat including animal rennet.

Here are the pictures to the Pathmark Neufchatel cheese and the KeyFood Neufchatel Cheese.

Did you know Arnold Healthy Multi-grain bread contains artificial sweetener? It's called sucralose. Check the ingredients.

Oh my god! I was just about to have a bagel... my lifeline... when I thought about all the animal products that might be in cream cheese! Thanks!
