hi<br><br>
i am extremely worried cause i have been drinking oatly (fortified) for the whole time ive been vegan and i just read something saying vitamin D isn't vegan... i feel really stupid. i've sent an email to them to ask if its vegan or not but i just wish i hadn't chosen the enriched version...if i'd gone for the standard it would have only contained oats and water and salt.<br><br>
does anyone know anything about this?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I wouldn't worry too much about it, it's not like you were doing it on purpose, if it was in fact non-vegan vit D. Was it D3? I think that's the one that's not vegan.

I've heard this too..Something about vitamin d being made from brains, but that would make it non vegetarian as well.

Vitamin D3 used to fortify foods usually from sheep wool or fish livers<br><br>
Vitamin D2 is usually vegan<br><br><br><br>
Don't worry about what you did, you can't undo it; I drank 8th Continent for a few months before I learned that the vit D came from wool. Now I think it is vegan.

There's a good chance it's vitamin D2. Few deliberately non-dairy products include D3, just because it reduces their consumer base.<br><br><br><br>
But even if it was D3, don't sweat it! It's a tiny amount, in any case, and far better than many other products you could've been using.

i have contacted the manufacturer and it was D3 derived from animal wool<br><br>
so umm i'm feeling quite down about that<br><br>
but at least i know not to drink it anymore<br><br>
now i've just got the regular kind - just oats, water and salt in that thanks very much <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> no animal products
