So I was at the store today trying to find vitamins that don't contain fish.. So I asked the girl stocking the aisle for help. She goes over some of them, and goes "this one doesn't contain fish...they get their (some ingredient) from lanolin, which is nice" I was just like *Facepalm* So... anyone have any recommendations? XD

Products labeled vegan do have to conform to vegan standards. If it were on the package that's saying the ingredients are from non animal sources.
I do agree with Deva. I have the tiny tablets which are so easy to take, and contain just the right amounts of everything,.

I also use V-Omega DHA with Epa, and actually have felt more focused since starting it.

Why would you need a multivitamin when you eat a complete, healthy vegan diet?
(vit. B-12 supplementation aside)

I unfortunatly, eat too much processed food. I am cooking clueless, and work 2nd shift... But I'm trying to change that, a little bit at a time.

lol No, they don't.
'Vegan' isn't a monitored label definition, and they could slap it on a package of porter house steaks if they really wanted to.

For example, a peanut butter I was going to buy said 'vegan' and contained honey,

And a pill I was going to need (anti-biotic) was described as 'vegan' and contained gelatin.

^ How about the vegan certified, vegan.org with the v in a heart? That's all vegan, right?
I'd throw such a fit if I ever read gelatin on anything labeled vegetarian, much less vegan!

Oh yea, the V heart and leaping bunny and all that is good, but stores and manufactures cannot be trusted within an inch of their life,

I have seen vitamins labeled vegetarian because of a veg capsule, but had fish.
It's pretty rare that I see vegan other than the "certified".

I bought a random cereal today that read all vegan, and when I got home I noticed the front READ vegan! Sooo happy! It was Peace cereal, and inexpensive!
