In India there's a strict regulation that any edible product have a clearly visible circular dot within a square box, if the color of the logo is green it means that the product is free of gelatin/animal by-products and if found to be in violation by testing, the consumer can sue the company hollow. If the logo is maroon color it means that vegetarians/vegans should avoid it completely. This rule applies to all companies/fast food joints excluding pharma where its obligatory, still I've seen even pharma companies including the green logo wherever possible (to please the almost 40% vegetarian population).

McDonalds in India use the respective logos on each and every one of their products including their soft-serves/brownies/mayo sauce which are certified as gelatin/egg-free. During the couple of times they served meat products to the customers by mistake (despite having separate kitchens), the customers easily spotted the mistake & upon complaining McDonalds were fined about 500$ and threatened with closure by the authorities if they repeated the mistake.

The logo concept should be likewise demanded in U.S and other countries, if the government is there to look after the people why not take care of the sentiments of vegans & vegetarians?

Travalanche I remember buying candy cigarettes at a mall a while back and out of curiosity checked the label and yep... Beef Gelatin... I still have the full box sitting on my shelf as a reminder to ALWAYS check labels before I buy.

It's a disgusting practice, the meat industry is beyond abhorrent and non-redeemable as they knowingly place products made from boiling animal byproducts in extreme heat to feed to consumers. I don't like to think of myself as superior to a dog or cat because I'm not but the same thing is done for pets as well so everything is being affected by it if they live in a domestic situation.

It makes me so angry, sorry. These animals go through more pain than a cancer patient and it's deemed as normal.

Sorry for getting overzealous but it hit's me hard, I'm literally crying just thinking about it. Sorry for getting off topic but yeah, it's in gummies, sour cream, hard candies, marshmallows, etc from what I've seen from fanatically checking labels.

silva We really need to identify our locations when getting specific about foods!
In America (at least) Skittles are now vegan. The shine is from carnuba wax, which is vegan.
It's shellac, or confectioners glaze that comes from beetles.

The red dye from beetles is cochineal, or carmine. Also called E120, and red 4.

Sour patch candies are vegan, as well as Swedish fish
Blow Pops are vegan
Betty Crocker fruit Gusher candies as well as (most? all?) of their other gummy pouch snacks

Some foods...

Most things that say light on the label. Also skittles dont have gelatine but they have bugs in them to make them shiny (Same with nerds, jellybeans and lots of other shiny things) But im not sure how "strict" veggie you are going to go, some veggies wouldnt eat them (me) some would. also some red dye has geletine in. drumstick lollies have gelatin too. anything chewy really. Haribos, mowams. Some sweets you can find special veggie ones. Ive been a veggie my whole life so im used to cheking labels and things. If your not sure then dont eat it i say Good luck!

Insomniana Thank God I live in Germany. This way I won't crave for most of the things mentioned here, because they don't exist here. :P



But it shocked me that orange juice isn't vegan! T_T Or roasted peanuts.

This shows me the importance of ALWAYS looking at labels.

And I thought I could trust some products and rely on my experiences.. *sighs*

It's so sad..

ChellyDoll Be careful when you're eating fudge. I had some thiss weekend that was made with marshmellows. I was so grossed out when they told me that that I threw up. >.<

Q1217 I've been looking at the ingredients of some foods that have been mentioned here, but I'm new to this, and I'm not sure if it would be listed as just "gelatin" or a variety of ingredients.



I hear Fluff's supposed to be safe because it doesn't need to retain its shape with gelatin.
11-13-2008 10:33 PM
sfveggie Anything "gummy" (gummy bears, marshmallow, gummy worms, etc) has probably been gelatized unless the label explicitly says it hasn't.

danakscully64 ^^^ You can find nail polish remover without gelatin at just about any store. I buy mine at Target.
11-09-2008 08:02 AM
ginaroth And nail polish remover! Who knew?! I'm wondering if it's necessary to the removal process or is it a fortification thing ie; 'gelatin strengthens nails'? Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe sells a vegan remover for like $6,7,8 bucks...something like that. We've been tricked by yogurt, icing, hot cocoa mix (I think that was the crunchy little marshmallows though,I don't miss them), Frosted mini wheats (even generic). Sad. I have a nine year old who's all over it though.

Which makes me so so so so so so happy! Swedish Fish also fall into the "gummy but safe" category. Yay!

danakscully64 Frosted Flakes are safe... and yummy
11-06-2008 10:11 AM
dormouse Somebody said "anything frosted" but I checked Frosted Flakes last time I was in the store and they seem clean to me.
11-05-2008 10:37 PM
danakscully64 OH NO, NOT COUNT CHOCULA! Sadness... Honestly, never had it, but that's still said to know

true I recently found it in a few shampoos too...and Frankenberry Count Chocula (sp) Cereal.

animeidee Wow... Thanks for the info! I've been trying hard to avoid such foods mentioned. I'm becoming an avid label reader too. =D

SilverSweet I was looking at the chocolate cake we had in the fridge, ready to dig into it, but as I've been having a bad run with accidentally eating non-veggie products, I checked the label.



Yep. It had gelatin!! (Evil, evil gelatin.)



It pains me to say it, but stay away from Peppridge Farms chocolate fudge 3-layer cake.



I'm so happy my dad made cookies (Hopefully those don't contain anything bad. They're just cookies, but that was what I thought about the cake!)

And that we have loads of junk food around.

(Not that it's really a good thing as I'm trying to lose weight, but on occasion it won't hurt...except I think I'm digging into it more then I should be. Must resist!) It's actually those little candies, but since thier little, that's the hook. You eat a lot of them. Grr. (I only eat about 4 at a time, but still...)



I might've eaten some gelatin because we got a white cake from the same company, but I checked the label on that one and didn't recall any gelatin, but sometimes I don't catch things when I read. It probably did, so next time I come across something "innocent looking", I'm double checking.

There are some recipes online for vegan jel shots... I've made them
