<p>Hello,</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p id="user_yui_3_7_3_1_1368579026455_1935"><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.veggieboards.com/content/type/61/id/35713/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="35713" data-type="61" src="http://www.veggieboards.com/content/type/61/id/35713/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 334px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<br><p>I thought it would be helpful to a lot of people if I made a list of foods that contain gelatin.<br><br><br><br>
marsh mellows -always contains gelatin<br><br>
pop-tarts w/ frosting - always contains gelatin<br><br>
mini wheats - always contains gelatin<br><br>
other frosted cereals- sometimes contains gelatin<br><br>
Jello - always contains gelatin<br><br>
star-bursts - always contains gelatin<br><br>
skittles<br><br>
jr mints<br><br>
peeps - always contains gelatin<br><br>
gummy worms/bears - sometimes contains gelatin<br><br>
yogurts - sometimes contains gelatin<br><br>
Green Giant frozen vegetables (in a bag) - not even kidding! <a href="http://www.generalmills.com/corporate/brands/brand.aspx?catID=61" target="_blank">LINK!!</a><br><br>
it under the section that says - Vegetables- Frozen (bag)<br><br>
icing/frosting - sometimes contains gelatin<br><br>
cream cheese - sometimes contains gelatin<br><br>
sour cream - sometimes contains gelatin<br><br>
trifles<br><br>
aspic<br><br>
Hostess cupcakes- Hostess brand- always/ other brand- sometimes<br><br><br><br><br><br>
as I discover more, I'll post them, and if anyone else has anything to add, just post it, and I'll add it to the list.<br><br>
The best way to be certain though is to just read the ingredients.<br><br><br><br>
And remember, just because you accidently eat some gelatin, it doesn't mean you're no longer a vegetarian.</p>

Paradox is saying this list might not be helpful.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
*shrugs* I guess that depends on whether a person has trouble reading labels.

I get the idea but it's a really negative thing to make a list of and made comprehensive would be ridiculously huge.

Unfortunately this list is not quite correct. It's vastly better to just check labels than to write off all "sour cream" as containing gelatine.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Hello,<br><br>
I thought it would be helpful to a lot of people if I made a list of foods that contain gelatin.<br><br><br><br>
marsh mellows<br><br>
pop-tarts<br><br>
mini wheats and other frosted cereals --- <b>Case by case. Most do, but not all</b> ---<br><br>
Jello<br><br>
star-bursts <b>Not always. Depends where you buy it, some countries it is gelatine free</b><br><br>
skittles<br><br>
jr mints<br><br>
peeps<br><br>
gummy worms/bears<br><br>
yogurts ---- <b>many yogurts do not have gelatine</b> ---<br><br>
Green Giant frozen vegetables (in a bag) - not even kidding! link<br><br>
it under the section that says - Vegetables- Frozen (bag)<br><br>
icing/frosting <b>--- Not the way I make it. Most doesn't, but you may have to look.</b> ---<br><br>
cream cheese usually doesn't, but maybe check the label.<br><br>
sour cream <b>--- proper sour cream should not have gelatine, some cheaper, crappy brands may have it</b> ---<br><br>
trifles<br><br>
aspic<br><br>
Hostess cupcakes<br><br><br><br>
as I discover more, I'll post them, and if anyone else has anything to add, just post it, and I'll add it to the list.<br><br>
The best way to be certain though is to just read the ingredients.<br><br>
Just about anything with frosting or icing. --- <b>incorrect. When I make icing it is just icing sugar, margarine and flavourings. A lot of icing is just that, too.</b> ---<br><br><br><br>
And remember, just because you accidently eat some gelatin, it doesn't mean you're no longer a vegetarian.<br><br><br><br>
BTW, a mod should probably make this a sticky</div>

im just listing things that i have seen gelatin in, or have read that have gelatin in them. Of course not ALL brands put gelatin in things like yogurt, but most do.<br><br>
This list just tells you things that gelatin could POSSIBLY be, so that you're careful before eating it.

Possibly edit your post? The OP says "foods that contain gelatine" not "please check the labels". For a list to be useful you will have to state, such as I did for the Starburst thing, if a particular food "always" or "sometimes" contains gelatine.

</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Frozen Steamers Broccoli Cut</li>
</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Frozen Steamers Chopped Broccoli</li>
</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Frozen Steamers Cut Green Beans</li>
</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Frozen Steamers Extra Sweet Niblets Corn</li>
</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Frozen Steamers Mixed Vegetables</li>
</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Frozen Steamers Niblets Corn</li>
</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Frozen Steamers Sweet Peas</li>
</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Select Baby Sweet Peas</li>
</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Select Broccoli Florets</li>
</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Select Shoepeg White Corn</li>
</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Select Sugar Snap Peas</li>
</ul><ul><li>Green Giant Select Whole Green Beans</li>
</ul><br><br><br>
The rest do.

About yogurts, in the US, most contain gelatin. I've never seen cream cheese with gelatin though.<br><br><br><br>
I'm sure this list would be great for newbies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

This site has a big list of what isn't vegetarian. It's nowhere near everything, though.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://bengaluruhuli.sulekha.com/blog/post/2008/04/vegetarians-beware-of-harmless-looking-snacks.htm" target="_blank">http://bengaluruhuli.sulekha.com/blo...ing-snacks.htm</a><br><br><br><br>
I believe it's all based in the United States.

^^ You can buy vegan Jel and vegan marshmallows, but you generally have to order those online or get them at a specialty store. Most new vegetarians have no clue that those aren't safe.
