What ingredients are you worried about? Eggs?

ben_uk 07-24-2008 09:50 AM

no, i know it includes eggs. just wondering if theres any other animal ingredients, like the ones that are used for cheese sometimes. i just dont understand why they dont put a V on it.

MrFalafel 07-24-2008 09:58 AM

There's no V because it is not vegetarian.

The ingredients mention cheese, and cheese is made with rennet. Unless it's specified as non-animal in origin, then rennet comes from ruminant animals' stomach lining, as MrFalafel pointed out.

oh i see, annoyed now that i bought without checking first! now what to do with it ? i mean i've already bought it and cant take it back as it was weeks ago!

ben_uk 07-25-2008 12:22 PM

OK question for everyone, you've bought something you thought was veggie, but later on found out its not actually veggie!!



What do you do with it?



a) throw it away

b) give it to someone else

c) eat it and dont buy it again

Pirate Ferret 07-25-2008 12:30 PM

b - give it to someone else

Guinevere 07-25-2008 02:22 PM

I would go with b aswell.
