I haven't eaten gelatin since reading what it was made of at the age of 8.Originally Posted by veggiemama-of2
I didn't know that gelatin has animal biproducts...ignorant, I know. So please help me. What else has animal parts in it?
You beat me to it.Originally Posted by jeezycreezy
Right in the produce section, on a black sign hanging above the veggies that were in the section where the veggies get misted.Originally Posted by Tesseract
Where was the sign posted? I'm wondering if my Kroger has the same sign... I've never seen one. Sounds like a good reason to use a vegetable wash that dissolves that stuff.
Most cosmetics do have some animal matter in them, but not all. For processed foods, you just have to read the ingredient list. A few items are exempt from having complete ingredient lists (beer for example) but may have incomplete lists, which are therefore misleading. Many food items are vegan or near vegan (may have, for example, a tiny amount of vitamins, of animal source, added). Most pharmaceuticals are largely non-animal but pills for example will have animal materials in them to bind materials together or coat them. How much animal matter can fit in a pill, however? Not much. Guitar strings are generally nylon these days, or steel, not real "gut" !!! Surgical sutures are generally polypropylene (permanent) (a brand name is Prolene) or a mixture of glycolic acid and lactic acid called called "polyglactin;" a brand name is Vicryl (absorbable).soaps, cosmetics, personal hygene items (lipstick etc.) processed food (marshmallows, gelatian etc.), Cheese coagulated using retin, cleaners, candles, waxes, lubricants, flavorings, many vitamins & suppliments (chondroiten, calcium, iron, B-12), pharmicuticals, clothing (silk, leather, wool, feathers, fur), jewelry (pearls, some things made with bone/ivory, mother of pearl, teeth, feathers), some inlays for furniture, musical instruments (bone, mother of pearl), violin & guitar strings, Piano keys, art supplies & pigments (hide glue, paintbrushes, paint), photography (film), airplane lubricant and runway foam, hydraulic break fluid...Printers ink for glossy magazine pages, The Road (asphalt), Automobile and bycycle tires (steric acid), Drywall (the walls of the house), cement blocks... old houses (horse hair in walls).
