Enzymes could be animal origin, like rennet from cow stomachs. Also:<br><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disodium_inosinate" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disodium_inosinate</a><br>
"It is mainly found in animals like pigs and fish[<i><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed" target="_blank">citation needed</a></i>]."<br><br>
Dunno how true this is and if it is true not sure if the animal is killed to obtain it.

Irrelevant. I don't care if it came from a chemistry lab, all I asked was if there wasn't anything vegetarian in there.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

<p>I care that it came from a chemistry lab.  That's the whole reason I found this on Google.  I'm glad this was here to tell me just how much unnatural substances I'm eating for dinner right now. That is relevant to <em>me</em>.<br>
Thanks for the ingredient list. I think I'm gonna pour it out and call it a loss of a couple bucks.<br><br>
:)</p>

It has cream milk in it, I think that should tip off anyone that it isn't vegetarian. When something says Cream Cheese Broccoli soup, I think its kind of obvious that it isn't vegetarian. If it has cheese in the name, come on now.

The term vegetarian generally refers to food that does not contain animal parts. Dairy and eggs are often considered a "stolen" food since the animal does not die in the process and is consumed by "vegetarians". The term vegan refers to foods that do not contain any dead animals or stolen foods including honey. Many foods are vegetarian, but not vegan. No food is vegan that is not also vegetarian. With that said the key words cream and cheese mean non-vegetarian.

Vegetarians can eat dairy products, eggs and/or honey. Just not flesh. Vegans are the ones who consume no animal products.

It amazes me how much they common mass misunderstand the use of “lab derived” ingredients. Hate to break it to you, but almost every food item that hits the store shelves has been modified to some degree. Everything. That does not mean it’s a bad thing. As a long time vegetarian & scientist I have come to realize that unless you literally grow your own food, it’s going to be processed/modified with chemicals. So please, start growing you own food. Have at it. Go vegan. On the flip side yes I understand that there is concern that the modifications can harm us. And sometimes they have. That is why we have the FDA & have studies on the chemicals. Have a good day.

Also, where do you think the soup is made? Directly in the kitchen. No. It probably comes in a powdered form that can last up to a month if unused. The fancy names in the ingredients are what guarantee this. They really aren’t that scary.
