Unfortunately, most flavors of Doritos are not vegan. They include ingredients like milk, cheese, whey, buttermilk, and other dairy products.


Non-vegan flavors:

  • Nacho Cheese
  • Taco
  • Salsa Verde
  • Spicy Nacho
Doritos’ website at the moment doesn’t mention “vegan” anywhere. Anyway, they have tastes that are actually vegan.

Doritos Blaze

Doritos Blaze

One more vegan Doritos opportunity is Blaze and it’s supposed to be actually, extremely spicy. But in fact, they’re pretty spicy and taste like a jalapeno pepper and corn or like corn chips that you put pickled jalapenos on.

It doesn’t contain milk ingredients, but there are 3 ingredients that cause concerned:

  • Sugar – For the same reasons given above.
  • Natural flavor – For the same reasons given above.
  • Artificial color (red 40) – it is tested on animals regularly so this coloring is not cruelty-free.

To sum up, most Doritos aren’t vegan, but there are 3 tastes that appear to be vegan.

Everything in this post is based on the ingredient information on the Doritos site. It may vary from country to country, so check the ingredient list in the grocery store before buying anything.
