What is vegan at KFC Australia?



This list was created to help those who are looking for vegan options. Yes, the company itself isn't vegan and prepares/sells non-vegan products. However, the point of this is to show what can be purchased. Hopefully, a push for more vegan products will have a positive influence on these companies. Feel free to add to the list or remove from the list by commenting on this post. Remember, be kind. We don't need those wearing grumpy pants.

If you want to add or remove to the list, make sure attach a quote, link or photo that proves the change.

Disclaimer: This is an AUSTRALIAN list. Products may be different in other countries. Ingredients and products are always subject to change. This is a guide only. Always check before consuming.

  1. Someone on a fb page was suggesting that the 'chicken' salt on KFC chips had actual duck in them! Can you shed any light on this? I had always thought the 'chicken' salt was just a flavouring. Now I'm concerned.

    1. I have read everywhere that the oil is canola oil and the seasoning is vegan and doesn't contain chicken or animal stock so apparently is vegan?

    2. My Friend emailed them and they replied to her confirming that the 'Chicken' salt contains duck :(

    3. The chicken salt is not vegan!!
      Here's the response KFC gave to me: "The salt mix that KFC uses to season our chips and corn contains an added flavour (derived from chicken). Therefore it is not suitable for vegetarians or vegans."
      Just a heads up!

    4. Unfortunately KFC Australia posted on their Facebook page that the chips aren't vegan because of the seasoning https://m.facebook.com/KFCAustralia/posts/10154378704913126

  2. I've also heard about the duck fat and an email posted on the Adelaide Vegans community confirmed the salt contains animal products

  3. Many people do not know why they should not buy the vegan products. The KFC Australia will provide some interesting reviews about their vegan products and the consumers should know about this information. The essay republic will create a high quality environment where the interested people may get involved with the other activities regarding the vegan products.

  6. KFC CHIPS ARE NOT VEGAN OR EVEN VEGETARIAN (at least for now).

    Just received a response email and this was confirmed :(

    "The salt mix that KFC uses to season our chips contains an added flavour (derived from chicken). Therefore it is not suitable for vegetarians or vegans."

    They also said: Please note that KFC does change product formulations from time to time, therefore the information above should be checked on a regular basis.

  9. how about just not supporting a company that is responsible for such misery, regardless of if they have a token vegan product.
