Keegan -<br><br><br><br>
You may or may not be interested in my phisosophy, but I have time on my hands so thought I'd share (just in case):<br><br><br><br>
Please everyone! : I'm not saying this is the way everyone should feel or act. I'm not saying anyone is wrong for reading labels or refusing to eat anything animal - no matter how miniscule the portions. (so please don't get bent out of shape or send me indignant PM's) - this is just my thinking on the subject of Vegan ingredients.<br><br><br><br>
Sometimes I "over-look" by-products if they are in miniscule quantities (as in natural flavorings listed at the bottom of the ingredients which means it's the least amount of everything in the product)<br><br><br><br>
I personally rationalize it in this way:<br><br><br><br>
1.) I don't want to devote too much energy in seeking out every particle of animal in everything I eat - I want to devote a reasonable amount of effort of course, but then I move on. (for me - there are more productive ways to spend this energy)<br><br><br><br>
2.) I personally am veggie because I'm "boycotting cruelty to animals" (and I have a bumper sticker that says so! *s*). A small amount of animal product in something is usually a by-product (ie gelatin vitamin d3 or is that 2, etc.) - animals arent being raised and killed to provide these.<br><br>
If everyone stopped eating meat today - all the misc. by-products would be too expensive to get from animals - they would come from other sources (plant I hope).<br><br><br><br>
3.) I avoid obvious animal products, and I write a lot of emails and letters encouraging companies to switch to plant products - this gives me satisfaction, but I don't stop eating something I enjoy or I can afford simply due to one trace ingredient being from animals.<br><br><br><br>
So anyway - I just wanted to say my peace on the vegan ingredient thing <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.veganoutreach.org" target="_blank">www.veganoutreach.org</a> talks about this a lot. I really like their take on it.<br><br><br><br>

I know for sure that it's not vegan because the vitamin D is D3 (cholecalciferal). Sorry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

dvmarie- I am the same way. I don't see any problem with very careful label-reading if that is what you want to do. But I don't have the energy to look for those little tiny things. I think cutting all meat/poultry/fish and 90% of other animal products out of my diet is a big step for my body and for the earth. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
