I was disappointed to find that you have added Egg-White to some of your new range of Gluten Free bread.
In the Vegan community, Helgas and Abbott's breads are renowned for being Vegan friendly because of the use of non-animal Emulsifier 471 (which can be from animal or vegetable sources//usually unspecified).

I happen to be scrupulous; but you can be sure that you have let down a great number of Vegans, whom have eaten your new bread... trusting by familiar graphic design of your packaging, that you are unchanged from being Vegan friendly as they recognize.

It would have been most courteous, as I’m sure that you have noticed a greater influx of Vegan inquiries and interest in your products over recent Years. To either have made clear on the front of your packaging that you use Egg now...
Or perhaps on your Vegan friendly breads, making this more apparent. This way any packets without Vegan marks, would be assumed, different to the usual assumption that all of your range contains no animal derivatives.


Sincerely,
Consumer

They even put 'dairy free' on the front cover....

That is another false-positive sign for a Vegan whom already thinks of Helgas this way.

ohhh, lucky I never even bothered with bread as I naturally assumed all would have those stupid emulsifiers and I didn't want to stand there for two hours reading every brand so instead if I even felt like something like bread I would just by crumpets... they are vegan happy and great with avocado, tomato and mushrooms.

But if everyone does know of any vegan bread, even wraps would be good. please share. I would love to have a salad sandwich... yum!

Here's a recipe for The Easiest, Simplest Vegan Bread Ever! from Food.com: http://www.food.com/recipe/the-easiest-simplest-vegan-bread-ever-155430

I haven't tried the above recipe yet but if someone does, please let me know if it is good.

I think most gluten free bread has eggs sad and the ones that don't are terrible!

sadly this is true, the thing is though they shouldn't because say a person with allergies to egg or dairy frequently uses a product that they know to be eggless or dairy free and they get sick.... it is irresponsible for the company not to mention their change with like you said casper a big sign yelling 'we use egg now' not to mention that their loosing out on business from loyal vegan customers that are now displeased with this... it needs to be included into regulations for all companies to label vegan as it is just not ok for us vegans that already don't have that much time on our hands because we're out saving animals and addition to that have to spend 3hrs in the shopping centre each week trying to find products up to our ethical beliefs... it's not ok it is not fair... they say the make the experience as convenient as possible but the more ethical beliefs you have the harder things get when it comes to shopping. (finding organic, vegan and fair trade all in the one product is near impossible...) We need more vegans in politics and law!!!!
