Just Googled it. God, I love Google.

From I saw: mostly no, since most brown sugar is simply white sugar with molasses added in.

It's not, that's the point. :) Brown sugar is not vegan because it's just white sugar (not vegan) with molasses in it.

Try Stevia which is a very sweet herbal extract.

Thanks savebabe!

But I checked a few place today and couldn't find this product. WHat else do you use when you want to bake and need a sugar substitute?

Are artificial sweetners vegan
any other suggestions?

Do they have Rogers brand sugar in your city? If so you'll be happy to know that it is 100% vegan. A friend of mine called the company when he was making brownies and they told him that they don't use any animal bones when they process their sugar. I'm not sure about other brands though.

You can't be a real Canadian, I haven't seen you end a sentence with "eh?" even once. ;)

Well here in western Canada you can buy the stuff in every grocery store, it's the most common brand of sugar around these parts. I'm not sure if the stuff's sold in Ontario or not...

Thanks Savebabe, Formica, Taylor and Dan (and everybody else if I missed anybody) who helped me out on this one.

I am attempting to bake a vegan cake myself for the first time :shock:
