Whether you are a new or long-time vegan, you might be wondering which Clif bars are vegan. The good news is that most of them actually are. With the exception of a few different flavors that have the potential for very small trace amounts of milk, you should not need to worry. You won’t find any actual animal products in the ingredients. Also, if you are having trouble finding Clif bars to purchase in your local area it is worth pointing out that they are all available at amazon.com.With that said, let’s start off by talking about which type of Clif bars you absolutely need to avoid.CLIF Whey Protein BarsIt might seem a little bit obvious to some folks already familiar with what Whey protein is, but Clif Whey Protein Bars are not vegan-friendly due to the fact whey is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained.
Like I mentioned earlier, the only other bars that should raise a red flag for anyone wondering which Clif bars are vegan would be any of the flavors that have warnings on the label about trace amounts of milk. According to the Clif website, Clif bars are dairy-free but the vendor they purchase non-dairy chocolate chips makes chips containing dairy in the same building. So if this is a concern to you, avoid any of the Clif bars containing chocolate. With that said, here are the Clif bar flavors that should be 100% Vegan and free from even trace amounts of dairy.• Apricot
• Berry Pomegranate Chia
• Blueberry Crisp
• Crunchy Peanut Butter
• Nuts & Seeds
• Oatmeal Raisin Walnut
Also, it is worth pointing out that although the Clif Whey bars are off limits, the Clif Builder’s Protein Bars are mostly vegan-free. However, the Builder’s also contained possible traces of milk like many of the other flavors in the regular bars. You could consider these to be the cousin to the original Clif Bar but specially formulated to pack in extra protein without a lot of additional calories. In fact, there aren’t many other bars you will find able to deliver this much protein with so little calories. (20g protein, 270 calories)
As mentioned above, if you are unable to find a particular Clif bar flavor at your local store, you can always find them available at amazon.com. In fact, I’ve personally found the prices on Amazon to be much cheaper compared to the stores I was purchasing them from previously.
