    2. Hi Madison

      Great list thankyou so much..
      I have just been into woolies to buy sweets fjor my sons vegan birthday party
      so i would like to up date a couple of things :)

      Woolies discontinued Lays crisps so they need to all go.

      Kettle Salt & vinigar are Vegan also the Chilli flavour.

      There is a new smack out called POPCORNERS you find them in the crisp isle and its a cross between a crisp and popcorn...Sweet & savoury also Sea salt flavour

      For the biscuit isle :) you also have Arnotts Raspberry Shortcake (The gelling agent in it is pectin which is safe)

      Sweety isle now...

      Allens Jelly Beans!! :D

      Couldnt find the X Tream sour straps in there so dont know if they still sell them , however the homebrand Sour straps are vegan

      101 Rainbow Straws (pkt of mini straws with sherbert in them) are VEGAAANNN :) :)

      hope this has been helpful

      oh and by the way Oreos and macro choc biscuits have palm oil in them, so you may want to get rid of them :)

    4. Allens jelly beans (in NZ anyway) have cochineal (E120) in them, so they aren't vegan. Not sure if it's likely to be different over there...

    5. Wonka long lasting gob stobbers (only the long lasting ones) are vegan too!

  4. Is it just me, or have they recently cut their range of available tofu? I can only find one brand of plain tofu at Woolworths anymore, which is usually sold out, and a couple of varieties of pre-flavoured tofu, which I'm not really interested in buying.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello! Yes I know! I have noticed the same thing. Last time I was there they had removed the whole tofu section and had replaced it with cheese :| I hope that they bring it back. I have been going to Coles for tofu now. Coles has a massive vegetarian/vegan section and the tofu is so much cheaper! :)

      Delete
    2. They are in the process of removing all the independent brands and Woolworths own brand has started to appear on the shelves. Haven't tried any of it yet.

      Delete
    3. Hi Lyndall,
      Thanks for the insight. So they are bringing out their own brand of tofu? :)

      Delete
    4. Woolies have bought back tofu, but only in the macro range. I now go to my local Asian grocery where tofu is about $4.50 for 900g, bunches of corriander and basil are about $1.20 each - what a bargain!!

      Delete
    5. There are two lines - the "Marcro" brand is not organic, but the "Marcro Organic" (purple labels) is organic. To avoid GM go organic. There is another issue to consider though.

      http://healthnews.benabraham.com/html/soy_products_adverse_effects.html
      http://www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.com/NaturalFood/Soy.aspx
      http://www.healingdaily.com/detoxification-diet/soy.htm

      I went into easting soy SOME went I went all organic (and instantly lost 45 pounds and stopped having Reactive-Hypoglycemia). However in those days I lived in the states, and I had organic meat options. When I moved to Australia (having for years eaten Aussie organic products) those many years ago - I was already on an all organic diet, and having lived in the USA where the conventional meat is all tainted with antibiotics and hormones (and metabolites from agro poisons and bad feeds) I would not eat meat I knew was not safe.

      Trouble was, nearly all the organic food produces in OZ back in those days, (a huge amount compared to most nations) was sold (usually the entire farm) to other nations. It never saw Aussie shelves. Organic meat was very hard to get. I wasn't into soy though I could make a very yummy spicy tofu. But I needed protein. Over that same time period of soy in 2/3ds of my major meals, I also wound up with blood that was very thick and clumping, mental issues easily as bad as as Alzheimer's dementia, symptoms similar to parkinsons (very low dopamine levels), brain hormone disruption, hypothyroidism that was resistant to all hormone treatments (at times I had all the symptoms present, but high levels of the hormones - which could not be used), I suddenly stopped all testosterone production, had sperm production, had massive muscle wasting, etc etc - and it just happens that *all* of these odd things (which made me officially disabled and in massive pain as of 2000) are ALSO well documented as known effects from eating a diet with more than a TINY amount of unfermented soy in it.

      TOFU = BAD
      TEMPE, MISO, TAMARI, SHOU = GOOD
      TVP = chemical contamination

      It just a plain advertising myth that soy is a wonder food, a health choice, etc. It is a myth that Asians eat massive amounts of soy. Most of what they get is fermented (not the same) and it in very small amounts (less that US carnivorous get in their burgers).

      It is important to note that soy is*not* the safe food we were told it was -as it was a marketing ply. We were all lied to. We have all been targeted with hype to sell product to get us to eat it. Soy is associated with a lot of serious health problems. It does not stop cancer, it creates it.

  7. Hi,

    Like you, I also use Nutrisoy Organic Tofu and was concerned when it disappeared form the shelves a few weeks ago. After weeks with no tofu available the shelves have now been filled with only Woolworths brand Macro tofu. After a call to Woolworths Customer Service it was confirmed that they have deleted the range and will no longer be stocking all the tofu brands they used to. I was told it was a "business decision" to only stock their own brand of tofu. As tofu is a core nutritional product for vegans and vegetarians I am devastated to hear that Woolworths has reduced it's range of tofu to only its own brand :(

    ReplyDelete

    1. Oh wow! Thanks Rachel for the information. That is really good to know but also very annoying. Looks like I will have to start buying my Nutrisoy tofu from Coles :) Thank you!

  8. And by the looks of the Macro one, it isn't organic. I wonder if this means the soy used is GMO??

    2. Just to clarify, the Oreo biscuits sold in Australia through Woolworths are not vegan. The Oreo biscuits that are made in the USA are the vegan-friendly version. You can find these in some other grocery stores Australia.

      There are also a few other items on your lists that are also not vegan (vegetarian, yes).

      Woolworths Macro range has recently added some vegan-friendly products to their range in the fridge section.

      Good list though.

  11. Hi, I think you will find Mentos will be made with or without gelatin, depending on where in the world they are made :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I don't see gelatin listed as an ingredient in Mentos.

    I have seen some Muslim halal food sites that say Mentos contain pig gelatin, but apparently the gelan gum in Mentos is not from gelatin, but is vegan. What are your thoughts?

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    1. Hi Jeff,
      it seems that some Mentos flavours use gellan gum instead of gelatin. The mint mentos and fruit mentos are the two that I could see that use gellan gum. However, it stated on the packets that they all use beeswax as a glazing agent. So it is really a personal choice :)
      Thanks!

  16. Hi Madison,

    Great list! Thanks for your efforts :)

    I just wanted to add to your list a little:

    Smooze Ice Blocks - available on the shelf to be frozen at home
    Raffertys Garden LB1 Ice Blocks - available on the shelf
    Slendier Slim Pasta - health food section - made from konjac vegetable
    McCains Pizza Bases - frozen box of 3

    That's all I can think of right now, but I'll give it some additional thought later on.

    Also, Nuttelex contains palm oil, so you may wish to remove it from your vegan list. They claim that it's "ethically sourced" but have provided no evidence of this claim, and Nuttelex has not been included in the list of sustainably-grown palm oil companies on Ethical Consumer: http://www.ethicalconsumer.org/shoppingethically/palmoilfreelist.aspx.

    I've ditched it in favour of the Macro Soy Spread.

  31. And as always, new vegans or people that are buying for vegans should note that the Woolworths soy cheeses all contain Casein and "natural cheese flavours". My wife bought some for our 1st anniversary and was upset when I told her that I wouldn't eat it.

    Ah well. Calling it "soy cheese" is just rather misleading.

    But I don't mind driving out of my way to a Mrs Flannery's or the like!

    1. Hi Taylah! Thanks for your comment. I know... it really sucks. I bought a soy cheese from Woolworths about 1 year ago and realised it contained Casein and was so annoyed!! It definitely is misleading.

      I love Mrs Flannery's. They stock such an amazing range of vegan cheeses!

  32. Hi Madison! Great site, I am currently switching over from vegetarian to vegan and all your info, plus the info in the comments from others, has really helped! I live in regional South Australia in a small town and it is extremely difficult to source vegan products; we don't have any types of vegan cheese in any of the shops here whatsoever. I found a website called Vegan Perfection (top result if you google it) which will ship vegan products (including soy-free alternatives for vegans who can't have soy) anywhere in Australia. I just thought it might be helpful for anyone in a similar situation to myself who also uses your informative site.

  33. this is such a wonderful site thank you, my daughter has actually sent me the link to your site and I am so happy I am upset however about Woolworths Soy Cheese! feeling ripped off, my husband bought it for me and I didn't check the label, won't be having that anymore, feel sick that I have eaten it. Also about Oreos, some Woolworths do actually sell the vegan ones, you just need to check every time you buy them, it's as if sometimes they import from the USA (vegan) and other times from the UK (has milk solids) weird but true as my Woolies sells vegan ones and I know of some Woolies in Hobart selling them too. thanks again for a wonderful site xx

    1. Hi Linda,
      Thanks so much. I am glad that you are enjoying Veggieful. I know... it is very annoying. I have had quite a lot of complaints about their soy cheese. I too did the same thing and bought it and tried it and felt so yucky that it wasn't vegan. I was very disappointed. Adding dairy really defeats the purpose of the product so I am not sure why?? Thanks for the information about oreos.

  34. Hey Guys!
    I stumbled across this site as my first real introduction to "Vegan". I am hoping to gradually make the switch. I was hoping that you could help me and guide me on how to begin. And is it true that I will continue to loose weight undergoing this dietary change?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Stacey! Congrats on making the switch. My tips would be to follow some of our recipes and get used to vegan cooking. Find your favourite milk substitute, look at egg substitutes, read about the benefits of veganism and start having fun with cooking! :) Feel free to email us with any questions. One of the main benefits of veganism is that it allows you to control your weight and can help with weight loss. However, you still need to be eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. But more importantly, you will be so much healthier inside... and most likely a lot happier too :)

    Just one to take off McVites Digestive Biscuits aren't vegan.They contain milk.
    Ingredients:
    Wheat Flour (54%), Vegetable Oil, Wholemeal (16%), Sugar, Cultured Skimmed Milk, Partially Inverted Sugar Syrup, Raising Agents (Sodium Bicarbonate, Tartaric Acid, Malic Acid), Salt.
    Keep up the super work. :)

    1. Hi Krystal,
      Thanks so much for the comment. I will take them off now. What a bummer! :)

    2. I bought some the other day and they didn't list milk in the ingredients. Neither did the Hobnobs I bought.

  41. Hi, here's another vegan product you might like to add.
    'Macro organic drinking chocolate' Its also 'fair trade'
    And it's delicious. :)

  42. Great list :)
    The home-brand BBQ flavoured chips are also vegan, and I'm pretty sure Darrell Lea strawberry liquorice is too.
    Be Natural apple flavoured porridge, home-brand cocoa puffs and fruit-loops are as well.

  45. Hi
    woolies have discontinued their macro hommus dips

    ReplyDelete
  46. I can't find any animal ingredients in the macro gingernut biscuits but yet they are only labled as vegetarian? I don't get it are they made on the same line as something with milk and eggs or something of the like, or are they not disclosing all the ingredients list?

  47. Hi Madison,

    Great list. I now keep it on the fridge so I can check it before going shopping. Would you consider adding that there is no Palm-Oil free soap in woolworths, but that EcoStore makes it with sustainable Palm Oil? I think soap is important enough to include on a vegan shopping list!

    1. Although, I am pretty sure that the Natures Organics range uses ethically sourced palm oil? I will check up on it!

  48. What a great list!

  51. Not too sure about Cadbury drinking chocolate. Don't they exploit dairy cows for their products? I won't buy Cadbury products for that reason.

  52. Hi Madison,
    Lindt Dark Chocolate definitely is not vegan. The label of both varieties you list says it contains butterfat. However, all the Whittakers chocolate that is 50% cocoa or greater is vegan - not just the 72% Ghana. I particularly like the Rum and Raisin, and the Dark Orange.

    1. Hi there,

      I have a block right here and it doesn't contain "butterfat". It only contains cocoa butter which is vegan.

  54. Great site Madison, I am in the process of going from vegetarian to vegan and this is a great help. I also buy the groceries for my office, so they only receive vegetarian and now vegan products as their snacks. Really terrific job. Thanks very much.

  56. Hi, When the Macro Soy Spread became available I enquired about the vitamin D and found it to be non vegan. It was derived from D3 sheep lanolin. That was a while ago though, maybe its okay now, just wanted to know if this has recently been confirmed by you to be Vitamin D2? Thanks
