Are Pringles Vegan?

I used to eat way too many Pringles. In recent years, I’ve scaled back. But even as a vegan, I continue to get these delicious chips occasionally at airports or gas stations. So I can definitely help you with identifying the vegan flavors.

Most Pringles flavors are not vegan, as most of them contain milk ingredients. The current vegan Pringles flavors in the US are Original, Salt & Vinegar, Lightly Salted Original, Reduced Fat Original, and Wavy Classic Salted.

Below, I’ve put together tables of all the Pringles flavors in the US, UK, and Australia, so you can clearly see which options are vegan in each of these countries. I’ll end with answering a few more common questions about vegan Pringles!

More Questions

Are Original Pringles Vegan?

Original Pringles are vegan in every country. They contain no animal-derived ingredients.

Are BBQ Pringles Vegan?

BBQ Pringles are vegan in Australia, and Texas BBQ Pringles from the UK are vegan. However, BBQ Pringles in the United States contain whey (a milk ingredient), so they are not vegan.

Interestingly, Pringles Salt & Vinegar is inconsistent in a similar way—it’s vegan in the US and Australia, but not the UK.

Are Sour Cream and Onion Pringles Vegan?

Sour Cream and Onion Pringles are not vegan in any country. They always contain milk ingredients, which are animal-derived and therefore not vegan.
