Whether you’re a brand-new vegan or a seasoned pro, it’s always exciting to discover great new animal-free products at your local grocery store. Unfortunately, in our busy lives today, not everyone has the time to scour ingredient lists, aisle by aisle, to find new vegan products. That’s why we’ve done the work for you! Save this handy guide to shopping vegan at Aldi, and the next time that you head out for groceries, simply toss some (or all) of these great products in your cart:
Aldi also carries Earth Grown Meatless Italian Sausages.
Earth Grown Veggie Burgers and Soy Protein Burgers in select varieties
Aldi now carries a few varieties of vegan burgers—but be sure to check the packaging. Some come with dairy cheese, so be sure to select a cheese-less option. Most of Earth Grown’s vegan products are clearly labeled as such in the upper corner of the package, and they’ll also have a “certified vegan” stamp on the box.
But if you’re really craving a vegan cheeseburger, you’re in luck. Aldi also carries vegan cheese now. Just buy some and toss it on your burger:
SimplyNature also carries a line of packaged organic greens (including Baby Arugula, Baby Spinach, Mixed Greens, Spring Mix, and Chopped Kale) and frozen organic fruits (Strawberries and Blueberries) that can serve as building blocks for your meals. Seen in the picture below, SimplyNature Hash Browns(Root Vegetable and Mixed Potato varieties) are also vegan.
As more and more people go vegan, chains like Aldi are evolving to meet the demand. The availability of the products listed here may vary from location to location, but note that—like all grocery stores—Aldi also carries plenty of “accidentally vegan” products, so this guide is by no means exhaustive. Always take a peek at ingredient lists, because a product may be vegan even if the packaging doesn’t explicitly state that.
