does not mention rennet in this one.. and this is what i have in my fridge, i know i should have checked before buying but i'm hoping its veggie. if not i wont be giving them any more of my business.



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.

ben_uk 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.
