Are Twiglets Vegan?

by Fabian Jackson

2min read

These distinctive crisps have a love-it-or-hate-it appeal, but are they vegan?


These nobbly, twig-like wheat snacks have stood the test of time over the past century. Whilst they do have a distinctly Marmite-taste, the crisps haven’t gone near a jar of the stuff. They are however coated in yeast extract which explains the flavour (and their divisive nature).

Are Twiglets vegan?

Yes, you can keep eating Twiglets as much or as little as you like because they contain no animal products. They’re officially labelled as ‘suitable for vegetarians’ but this is because they’re made in a factory that also produces non-vegan foods too. So if that is something to consider.

But it’s important to check the ingredients label if you’re unsure; specifically watch out for whey, which is from dairy-based milk.
