Is Biscoff Vegan?
Biscoff spread has become increasingly popular in the UK, delicious in sweet treats of all kinds. But is it vegan?
What is biscoff?
Biscoff is a cookie butter made from Speculoos cookies, a shortbread biscuit originating from Belgium and the Netherlands. Speculoos is spiced with nutmeg, cinamon, cloves and cardamom, making it a rich and fragrant biscuit, which in turn gives biscoff the same spiced flavouring. The speculoos cookies are combined with fat, flour and sugar until it becomes a spreadable paste.
Is biscoff vegan?
Yes, fortunately, biscoff is vegan! This is because while it needs fat to be made into a paste, the fat of choice is vegetable oil, making it all plant-based as the biscuits themselves are vegan, too. So, add to your toast, porridge, cookies and cakes to your heart's content!
