Is Honey Mustard Vegan?
Honey mustard is not considered vegan by many people since honey is derived from bees. Strict vegans avoid animal products including those that come from insects like bees. Furthermore, it is not uncommon for honey mustard to contain eggs, which is another food item that most vegans avoid.
Does Honey Mustard Have Eggs?
We answered this question above but lets dig a little deeper into it. It all depends on the honey mustard product. If you review the ingredients of the popular honey mustard brands featured above, you will notice that some have eggs and others do not. In other words, it all depends on the product in regard to whether or not the honey mustard has eggs. Of course, check the honey mustard ingredients if eggs are a concern for you.
Does Honey Mustard Need Refrigeration?
Honey mustard should be refrigerated after being opened since the refrigerator helps preserve it longer. However, if you happen to leave it out, not all is lost. The acidity in mustard is said to help mustard last about a month in a cool, dark place outside of the refrigerator. A good idea is to check the ingredients. If it contains ingredients such as eggs or mayonnaise, be sure to store it in the refrigerator when not in use.
