Two sisters just blogging about their passion: halal food!

Source of mono and diglycerides in Dempster’s & Country Harvest breads



We enjoy consuming Dempster’s and Country Harvest’s breads and the topic of mono and diglycerides came up. Hence, we decided to confirm the source of mono and diglycerides in their bread products.

Here’s what we found on Dempster’s website:

Mono and diglycerides are emulsion stabilizers (salad dressing, for example, is an emulsion of water in oil). Therefore, mono and diglycerides are not derived from any animal source; neither are our breads—they are entirely made from plant ingredients.

We called the following number: 1800-661-7246 for Country Harvest and learned that their source of mono and diglycerides is also vegetable based.
