Warning: Babies Die for Cheese

Would you ever eat the lining of someone’s stomach? If you still eat cheese, chances are you’re regularly eating a product derived from the stomach lining of baby animals. If it sounds gross, it’s because it IS gross!

Let’s chat about “rennet.”

WTF is rennet? It’s an enzyme often obtained from the inner lining of the stomachs of baby animals.

Why is it in cheese? Rennet is used to curdle (eww!) cheese to make it more solid.

Conclusion: Most cheese is not vegetarian because a baby had to die for it.


Solution: Stopping eating the gross insides of animals is easygo vegan! There are tons of vegan cheeses available that no one had to die for. Click here to read about them!

Be sure to check out this post for more info about dairy.

    Babies should not have to die for cheese.I thought that people made the cheese in a factory or something. I did not know this at all. Why do animals have to die. You know what I am going to stop eating cheese. I am going to eat the vegetarian cheese, thats what Im going to do. Babies should not have to die for anything. thats why I wont cottage cheese. Poor babies.

      Oh no, is cottage cheese non-veg? I’ve recently become vegetarian (goal of being vegan) and I’ve been eating cottage cheese as a treat. Do all cottage cheeses have rennet?

    I’m Vegetarian and always check the label for rennet before I eat it. It’s not in ALL cheeses.

      Yes but all cheese (unless it’s vegan)comes from dairy. The dairy farms steal the calves from their mothers soon after birth. And not gently. They are thrown on the ground and dragged away. The mother and baby mourn for day. Most calves are left to die or killed in many different brutal ways since they’re not needed. Some are sold to veal farms to suffer there chained. Mother’s are used for their milk and suffer every day, treated like milk machines. So just because this one ingredient isn’t in your cheese, think twice. Watch videos on dairy farms and see for yourself. Going Vegan is the only way.

    My favorite vegan cheeses are made by Galaxy Nutritional Foods. They`re very “cheesy”-but without the cruelty!
