vegagitator It won't let me post a link. I found a recipe for Moon Pies on All Recipes. It was under sandwich cookies, under filled cookies, under (duh) cookies. There are probably some other comprable recipes on the site too. I think you could veganize it fairly easily with some egg replacer and soy milk (sour it with a tiny bit of lemon juice or vinegar for "buttermilk"). Earth Balance and Spectrum make non-hydrogenated shortening made from Palm oil.

vegagitator Kojel and Emes' "gelatins" are made with carageenan and vegan (careful, they may make non-vegan ones too). Hain Superfruit dessert jel is vegan too. Pangea Vegan Products has their own brand of VeganSweets dessert Jel mix.

rainbow_clouds gelatin is always derived from an animal otherwise it's called something else.

vggiegirl It's not Dannon used to make their fruit on the bottom yoghurts with fruit pectin and moved to gelatin. Jerks.

bstutzma I'm pretty sure it isn't.

colorful Dannon yogurt was on sale for a super deal last night, so I bought some. This morning while we were eating it, my husband noticed that "kosher gelatin" is in the ingredient list. Has anyone ever found out whether Dannon yogurt is vegetarian?

Fenguin The gelatin used to make Count Chocula marshmallows comes from pig skin.

raylea I emailed... and, unfortunately, it is from an animal source No Moon Pies for me... (on second thought, that could be a good idea!)

No need, Gelatin is always from animals, or it has a different name.

Kosher Gelatin is probably from fish so it can be used with milk products.

Boxes of fish gelatin usually has big statment of "kosher gelatin" on them, and that's probably the meaning in "moon pies" too, whatever it is..

Ah, the ingredients list says "kosher gelatin". Ouch! I guess it's one of those circumstances where one must contact the manufacturers.

tearhsong2 Kosher gelatin could be beef gelatin or fish gelatin--all it means is that it's not from pork and that it's so processed that it's not considered an animal byproduct anymore.

froggythefrog Kosher gelatin is pareve, which simply means that it is so removed from the animal that it is no longer considered an animal product. This means it can be agar agar, beef, etc.

Loki Wouldn't the ingredients list on the side of the kosher gelatin explain what was in it?

IamJen I've not yet found a product in my HFS with kosher gelatin that is vegetarian. As mentioned, it would be non-pork gelatin, but it's mostly to do with how the animal is killed/prepared - that is, does the process follow Jewish dietary laws.
04-18-2004 10:17 AM
kpickell Kosher gelatin means non-pork gelatin. It could still be beef gelatin. You won't know unless it says.

In practice, kosher gelatin is usually made of agar-agar - a plant (seaweed) derivative.

Most kosher gelatins are also vegetarian.

Does this mean that kosher gelatin is vegetarian?

If this is true... than Moon Pies are vegan
