Do you consider sugar vegan? It is just ground up sugar.

You can always make your own.

Vegan Powdered Sugar
  • 2 cups raw sugar or Sucanat
  • cup corn starch

Blend sugar and corn startch until powdery. Scrape ingredients from the sides as needed until all ingredients are fully blended. Will last for months if stored in an airtight container.

This all depends on how you stand on bone-char processing - some brands use it, some don't, but if you don't worry about that process then anything powdered should be adequate. If you're concerned about bone-char processing, look for a brand such as Hain as they have an organic powdered sugar that's made so you don't have to worry about this issue.

All depends on where you are. The USA seems to be way behind the times when it comes to sugar and bone char, unfortunately...
