They once used vit. D that came from animal sources. A few months ago I read the ingredient list just for the heck of it, and it said vitamin D2, which is usually vegan, but they hadn't put anything on their website about there soymilk being vegan. So it looks like it is vegan now.

A plastic hutch is no substitute for a mother. Replace dairy, not mothers.

I just recently heard about this too, so I checked the website, and there's conflicting information. If you go here and click on FAQ, it says it uses vitamin D3. But on another page of the site it says it uses D2. Maybe they recently changed it and haven't updated the FAQ?

On VB about 2-3 years ago, there was a big stink about their soymilk containing lanolin as a source of vitamin D3. Lanolin is a body oil obtained from sheep's wool. They may have changed their soymilk since then.

Check out these threads and remember that the information is old:


https://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...tinent+soymilk <--- Walter links to an article on Vegan Outreach that has now disappeared.

They stopped using Vitamin D3 a long time ago.

Yeah, i checked the label a few months ago.

I just don't like it as much as I like Silk. So I don't buy it.

I checked a couple of months ago just for the heck of it, and they did change back to D2. I don't know when though.
