Gelatin Foods List

post #1 of 94
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

 

 


I thought it would be helpful to a lot of people if I made a list of foods that contain gelatin.



marsh mellows -always contains gelatin

pop-tarts w/ frosting - always contains gelatin

mini wheats - always contains gelatin

other frosted cereals- sometimes contains gelatin

Jello - always contains gelatin

star-bursts - always contains gelatin

skittles

jr mints

peeps - always contains gelatin

gummy worms/bears - sometimes contains gelatin

yogurts - sometimes contains gelatin

Green Giant frozen vegetables (in a bag) - not even kidding! LINK!!

it under the section that says - Vegetables- Frozen (bag)

icing/frosting - sometimes contains gelatin

cream cheese - sometimes contains gelatin

sour cream - sometimes contains gelatin

trifles

aspic

Hostess cupcakes- Hostess brand- always/ other brand- sometimes





as I discover more, I'll post them, and if anyone else has anything to add, just post it, and I'll add it to the list.

The best way to be certain though is to just read the ingredients.



And remember, just because you accidently eat some gelatin, it doesn't mean you're no longer a vegetarian.

Bags too! Oh goodness! ):

I have never even heard of trifles or aspic, but at least now I can be weary of them. XD

Paradox is saying this list might not be helpful.





*shrugs* I guess that depends on whether a person has trouble reading labels.

I get the idea but it's a really negative thing to make a list of and made comprehensive would be ridiculously huge.
post #7 of 94
I do not read labels, because I do not buy food so I didn't know any of this. I eat alot of raw foods.
post #8 of 94
Unfortunately this list is not quite correct. It's vastly better to just check labels than to write off all "sour cream" as containing gelatine.

marsh mellows

pop-tarts

mini wheats and other frosted cereals --- Case by case. Most do, but not all ---

Jello

star-bursts Not always. Depends where you buy it, some countries it is gelatine free

skittles

jr mints

peeps

gummy worms/bears

yogurts ---- many yogurts do not have gelatine ---

Green Giant frozen vegetables (in a bag) - not even kidding! link

it under the section that says - Vegetables- Frozen (bag)

icing/frosting --- Not the way I make it. Most doesn't, but you may have to look. ---

cream cheese [b]usually doesn't, but maybe check the label.

sour cream --- proper sour cream should not have gelatine, some cheaper, crappy brands may have it ---

trifles

aspic

Hostess cupcakes



as I discover more, I'll post them, and if anyone else has anything to add, just post it, and I'll add it to the list.

The best way to be certain though is to just read the ingredients.

Just about anything with frosting or icing. --- incorrect. When I make icing it is just icing sugar, margarine and flavourings. A lot of icing is just that, too. ---



And remember, just because you accidently eat some gelatin, it doesn't mean you're no longer a vegetarian.



BTW, a mod should probably make this a sticky

im just listing things that i have seen gelatin in, or have read that have gelatin in them. Of course not ALL brands put gelatin in things like yogurt, but most do.

This list just tells you things that gelatin could POSSIBLY be, so that you're careful before eating it.

Possibly edit your post? The OP says "foods that contain gelatine" not "please check the labels". For a list to be useful you will have to state, such as I did for the Starburst thing, if a particular food "always" or "sometimes" contains gelatine.

Incorrect.



According to their site, under the section "Vegetables - frozen (bag)", the following flavors in US do not contain gelatin:


  • Green Giant Digestive Health Sliced Yellow Carrots, White Navy Beans and Chopped Spinach in a Garlic Herb Sauce
  • Green Giant Frozen Steamers Broccoli Cut
  • Green Giant Frozen Steamers Chopped Broccoli
  • Green Giant Frozen Steamers Cut Green Beans
  • Green Giant Frozen Steamers Extra Sweet Niblets Corn
  • Green Giant Frozen Steamers Mixed Vegetables
  • Green Giant Frozen Steamers Niblets Corn
  • Green Giant Frozen Steamers Sweet Peas
  • Green Giant Select Baby Sweet Peas
  • Green Giant Select Broccoli Florets
  • Green Giant Select Shoepeg White Corn
  • Green Giant Select Sugar Snap Peas
  • Green Giant Select Whole Green Beans



The rest do.

About yogurts, in the US, most contain gelatin. I've never seen cream cheese with gelatin though.



I'm sure this list would be great for newbies
post #15 of 94
This site has a big list of what isn't vegetarian. It's nowhere near everything, though.

I believe it's all based in the United States.

^^ You can buy vegan Jel and vegan marshmallows, but you generally have to order those online or get them at a specialty store. Most new vegetarians have no clue that those aren't safe.

You can pick up veg*n jelly in most supermarkets round these parts.

Jelly as in jam or Jelly as in Jello-style gel?

Sorry, I did mean Jello

That's crazy, I'm envious In the US, it's very hard to come by. What brand can you find in stores there? If I want vegan jel, I have to go to a Health Food Store that's 30 minutes away.
post #23 of 94
"Jelly" is the correct term for, well jelly (jello stuff) and not jam (jam) in many, many places. Do no apologise for using what is the correct word for most people. Calling jam "jelly" is very regional.

Weightwatchers do some, I think there's probably some own brand ones too, been a while since I've bought any.

I was apologising more for not recognising that I could be misunderstood, I know it's jelly really (by which I don't mean jam)

When I think of Jelly, I think of fruit spread made with juice that you put on toast. Jam is made with chunks of the fruit. In the States, we just call Gelatin dessert "Jello", which is like calling window cleaner "Windex", but that's just what we say since there really aren't any other brands on the market. "Jell dessert," maybe, but never jelly

We do have an item that was recently put on shelves, has chunks of fruit in it, that's vegan, but it doesn't come in a box where you add water, it's pre-made.

Ah, ok. I love little differences in language. Jam/jelly, biscuits/cookies.

A co-worker was telling me there is now a pre-made jelly-o that has recently come on the market that is (supposedly) vegan. I have yet to see it, I do think it is Aeroplane Jelly, an Australian brand, though.

The box mix I buy is Gefen brand, it's yummy, but hard to find.



I'm pretty sure this is our vegan gel.
post #29 of 94
interestingly most of the pre-prepared jelly (not jam or fruit spread) in the UK is vegetarian, whereas the majority of supermarkets (piggly wiggly equivalents maybe) sell blocks or powders of jelly with gelatin in it. You can purchase V jelly, but it takes a little more effort to find.



I think the list would be more helpful if it the item was listed by country. I had heart failure recently after reading a different post on here that yoghurt, cereal and skittles always contained gelatin. Upon checking labels they are all fine (in UK).
post #30 of 94
In the US, they put animal products in a lot of things that don't need it. Pillsbury pie crust has lard, most yogurts have gelatin, stuffing has animal fat, stuff like that. Only recently did they remove the gelatin from Skittles. Weird, huh?
