Does anyone know if Simply Wize gluten free gnocchi is vegan? I have been buying it for ages and love it but I saw it has lactic acid in there. I emailed the manufacturer but they haven't gone back to me.. might have to call them. If anyone already knows, I'd appreciate it :)

From shakahara.com:

 

Quote:

The source of commercial lactic acid used in consumer products is almost always carbohydrate fermentation.. The carbohydrates used are almost always obtained from plant sources.

 

If the ingredient label on a food product or cosmetic product says "lactic acid," the lactic acid almost certainly comes from carbohydrate fermentation.

 

Carbohydrate fermentation is the same process used to make beer, wine, and bread....

 

....Note that lactose is different than lactic acid and that lactose is commonly derived from cows' milk.

According to this, your gnocchi is vegan. Let us know if you hear back from Simply Wize.

Ok thanks Capstan. I had a feeling it was more likely to be plant derived but I wanted to be sure. I think I will give them a call on Monday just to double check, it will make me feel a bit better knowing for certain :)
