There's lecithin in Amy's non-dairy pot pie's. I was wondering if the lecithin is soy derived or animal derived.<br><br><br><br>
I'm hoping someone can answer this very soon, because I'm hungry!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

lecithin can be derived from animal and nonanimal sources<br><br><br><br>
i believe it is most commonly derived from soybeans... but usually labeled as 'soy lecithin'<br><br><br><br>
if you are questioning a particular product, the best thing to do is to call the company and find out what Their source of lecithin is<br><br><br><br>

Sorry, I don't know about the lecithin, but I did find this from: <a href="http://www.amyskitchen.com/news/in_the_news/articles/021101_veg_family.html" target="_blank">http://www.amyskitchen.com/news/in_t...eg_family.html</a><br><br><br><br>
Several of your products would be vegan if it weren't for the addition of honey. Do you have any plans to modify those products so that they're entirely vegan?<br><br><br><br>
We're working on it. We have 34 non-dairy products in our line currently; 30 of them are vegan. The four products that are not vegan are the All American Burger, the Non-Dairy Vegetable Pot Pie, the Vegetable Pie in a Pocket Sandwich, and the Veggie Loaf. We should be able to make the Pot Pies vegan, but we're still experimenting.<br><br><br><br>
Edited to add: On the Amy's Kitchen website: "Please use the Search function in our Products Page and click on vegan for a list of Amys items that are vegan." Maybe this will help, in addition to emailing the company.

Thanks everyone.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> That's odd, I just came from that site before I came back here, I guess I should have went there first of all.<br><br><br><br>
So I guess it's vegan besides the honey. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"> They state that all their products are vegetarian. So I'm thinking that the lecithin is soy derived, but they should state that it is, if that's the case.

they probably assume that since they are a totally vegetarian company that people would assume their products contain lecithin that isnt derived from blood or whatnot<br><br><br><br>
