This looks like a UK product list, I thought Walkers was called Lays in the US, plus I'm getting RBS ads on the page unless it's just working out from my IP that I'm British.Originally Posted by RunnerVeggie
Sorry, this list sucks. A couple of examples:
Fanta orange ingredients (US): Carbonated Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate (to protect taste), Natural Flavors, Modified Food Starch, Sodium Polyphosphates, Glycerol Ester of Rosin, Yellow #6, Brominated Vegetable Oil, Red #40.
Where's the fish? Sure, there's natural flavors. But I doubt they come from fish.
Smarties: Dextrose, Citric Acid, Calcium Stearate, Artificial Flavors, Colors (Red 40 Lake, Yellow 5 Lake, Yellow 6 Lake, Blue 2 Lake).
Definitely no fish in Smarties. Calcium stearate can apparently be from animal or vegetable sources, but it is cow or hog-derived when from animal sources. But, considering the company claims their product to be vegan, it must be vegetable derived.
Oreos are not vegan in the UK. I'm not sure what would be in them that is non-vegetarian.Originally Posted by dividedsky
As far as I have researched Oreos are vegan. What in the world would make them non-vegetarian?
Ok, fair enough. The OP should specify, because a lot of people are jumping to the wrong conclusions.Originally Posted by lucky_charm

I heard that Fanta in the UK, along with lilt, contains/ contained fish gelatine.
UK smarties means a completely different thing than US smarties, and as far as I remember the non-vegetarian ingredient was cochineal (crushed bugs for red food colouring) no idea if they still do this, they're definitely not vegan as it's milk chocolate.
Maybe the OP didn't know it was UK-based list. It's not really clear.Originally Posted by RunnerVeggie

BTW, Fanta Orange Great Britain ingredients: Carbonated water, sugar (from beet and/or cane), orange fruit from concentrate (5%), citric acid, vegetable concentrates (carrot, pumpkin), preservative (potassium sorbate), natural orange flavouring with other natural flavourings, sweeteners (sodium saccharin, aspartame), antioxidant (ascorbic acid) acidity regulator (sodium citrate), stabiliser (guar gum). Contains a source of phenylalanine.
No gelatine or anything else that would appear to be animal derived.
