Hey guys,<br><br>
Was this total common knowledge already? ARGH I usually get Silk soymilk b/c I think it tastes the best...but then I got the original light version (I usually get organic unsweetened)..went to pour some for coffee and noticed it has vit D added? WHAT??? It was my understanding that vit d is not vegan..? Ugh..I need to do more reading...*falls over*<br><br>
On a related note, does anyone know what soy milk Starbuck uses?

It's probably D2. Every soy, almond, rice, hemp, etc milk that I've tried and is fortified is fortified with vitamin D2 which is vegan. It's vitamin D3 that isn't vegan.

It might be D2 and OK. If it isn't stated though there's a chance it's D3. Best start looking over your shoulders for the vegan police.<br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw549u-ELBY" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw549u-ELBY</a>

I stopped drinking oat milk b/c it had b12 and vit d and I couldn't find out the source :-(<br><br>
Obviously because I want vegan superpowers. ^.^

Are Silk products vegan?<br><br>
Yes, completely! There are no animal derivatives in our products. The lactic acid and live cultures we use in Silk Live! soy yogurt come from a vegetable source. All vitamins used to fortify Silk products are vegetable-derived. We use calcium from natural limestone. Unlike many DHA-fortified products that contain fish oil, our DHA-fortified soymilk uses algal oil: a sustainable, vegetarian source of DHA.<br><br>

By the way - in the UK at least normal Oatley milk uses (and specifies) D3. Oatley *orange* however (I forget the full name but the label colour is orange <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> ) uses D2 and is fine for vegans. And is rather delicious on muesli.

It used to be that the organic oatly was the only vegan one as it was not fortified at all (not that it used D2) and all fortified versions, including the chocolate, used D3.<br><br>
However, oatly changed the recipe recently (I like to think due to pressure from vegans!) and now use D2! It doesn't say on the carton but the packaging has to be best before a certain date (I think Jan 2012 but will need to check) for it to be the vegan version.
