Ice cream, especially real ice cream is made from Milk & eggs. If you are a O/L Vegetarian you can eat it.

Some companies do put gelatin and/or mono & diglycerides in ice cream. If you are vegan, those incredients would be a no-no, but most lacto-ovos only avoid visible pieces of meat, meat stock, etc. Eating dairy ice cream with gelatin in it does not make you a nonvegetarian. Feel free to avoid whatever ingredients you want, though, as your conscience dictates.

How's that, skylark? So it's ok to eat the collagen extracted from animal skin, bones, cartilage, ligaments and so forth, only visible meat is a no-no? How does that make you a vegetarian?

Garlic icecream is good. I am sure its not vegan though. Too bad. I think someone should start selling that. Probably not much of a market though.

This has been discussed at-length in other threads on VB. Many people go vegetarian and find out much down the road what gelatin is. Does that mean all that time they were fooling themselves and are really just selective omnis? Fish is a completely separate issue.



We could add to this discussion any number of ingredients that while they do require the death of an animal (carmine, other coloring agents), most lacto-ovo vegetarians do not go out of their way to avoid them. Typically, vegans are the ones who enschew the tiny portions of animal products found in many prepared foods.



If a lacto-ovo does avoid gelatin, carmine, mono & diglycerides and any number of other hidden ingredients, more power to them. Just don't tell them they're not making the grade if they opt otherwise.
