Is Dijon Mustard Vegan? (And What Brands To Buy)

Is Dijon mustard vegan? Sometimes! Some brands may contain animal byproducts. Included is a list of vegan-safe brands and where to buy them.

Dijon mustard has a potent flavor that’s both sweet and spicy. That unusual taste sometimes comes from an ingredient called verjuice, a highly acidic juice that comes from filtered grapes.

While different ingredients can be used during the filtering process, many commonly used ingredients, such as casein, gelatin, and isinglass, are derived from animals.

Thankfully, this doesn’t mean that you always need to avoid Dijon mustard. Any mustard that is made with white wine should be safe. You’ll just want to stick to products that you know are safe.

Also note that flavored Dijon mustards are likely not vegan, due to added honey, sugar, or other ingredients.
