IKEA UK’s ring donuts are no longer suitable for vegans, according to multiple people who have spotted animal-derived products in the ingredient listings.

According to multiple sources, the Swedish furniture giant has changed suppliers, and the recipe has changed to include dairy-derived ingredients including milk powder.

The store’s chocolate ring donuts have never been vegan-friendly.

IKEA vegan options

Despite this donut news, IKEA has made strides forward recently, when it comes to accommodating vegan diners, including the launch of its plant-based hotdog, and the development of soft-serve vegan ice-cream (set to launch in some countries in 2019).

Speaking about the menu developments, Michael La Cour, Managing Director at Ikea Food, said: “Every year, 660 million people enjoy the Ikea Food offer, and we see this global reach as an opportunity as well as a responsibility to serve food that is good for people and the planet.

“With the new veggie hot dog, we can inspire and enable customers to choose a plant-based, more sustainable option at an affordable price.”

Plant Based News has contacted IKEA for a statement and will update this story in due course.
