Vegan cereals are available from commercial manufacturers such as Kellogs® and Perswoods®. Some vegan cereals can also be made at home with common ingredients, including apple harvest oatmeal, cranberry apple cereal and tropical retreat cereal. Vegan cereals vary from plain oats or ground wheat to those with an array of ingredients, such as apricot brown rice cereal.

Commercial cereals are subject to recipe and ingredient changes, so their vegan status may change over time.

The company also sells Malted Wheaties, Smartprice Cornflakes and Ready Oats.

Vegan cereals can also be made in hot varieties, such as tea-infused hot cereal and vegan creamy rice cereal. Five-grain hot cereal features dry oatmeal, quick-cooking barley and brown rice. The ingredients are combined with whole-wheat flour, cornmeal and optional sesame seeds. Crock pot hot whole-grain cereal features bulgur, brown rice and barley. The cereal is flavored with vanilla, chopped dried mixed fruit and cinnamon.
