Is All Pasta Sauce Vegan?
Not all pasta sauce brands are vegan. Many store-bought pasta sauces contain multiple animal products, most of which are dairy products.
Be on the lookout for pasta sauces that contain milk, but also be careful about other animal products that are not listed under an allergy warning, like meat flavorings.
Luckily, many spaghetti sauce brands have vegan options even if all of their selections are not plant-based. Check out the list below to find many vegan pasta sauce brands. I've also included varieties that are not vegan so you can be sure to stay away from them.

One of my personal favorite pre-made sauces, Rao’s might be a little pricy, but the flavor is worth it. While Rao’s sauces aren’t targeted for vegans, most red sauces are naturally vegan because they use real ingredients and don’t add in any extra non-vegan ingredients like “natural flavors” or sugar.
Where to Buy: You can buy Rao’s pasta sauces online on their website or on Amazon. You can also find them in-store at most major retailers.
