    Thank you both! This info is very informative,I’ll make sure to make some notes
    about what I need to look out for,And carry it with me in my purse when I go shopping
    next time, thankfully most of what I bought last time is all vegan,save for these meatless soy non chicken nuggets that actually contain the egg whites as a binder in the batter
    Boo! :( I gotta watch out for this stuff. Thanks again!

    When I first went vegan, I made this wallet-sized card:

    And I used it whenever I was unsure about ingredients. It’s not a complete list but I think it’s the most common things.

    Casein is a animal based protein (it comes from milk), which is often included in soy cheeses as well. Rennet, unless specified as vegetarian rennet is an enzyme from a cows stomach. A lot of products list albumen, which is a fancy term for egg whites. Carmine is a red pigment made from crushed mites… Though if you are eating any factory made food you are probably eating bug parts. Health and safety has a list which says the maximum numbers of bug parts a food can contain. Gelatin is made from the boiled connective tissues of animals. Those are the most common ones you see. If you have an iPod there is an app which lists all sorts of stuff, and what it’s made from and lets you sort always vegan/sometimes vegan/not vegan friendly.

    I love food and animals(reason why I'm here :)). Pescatarian for a few months but then realized fish also have a life and feelings just like any other living creature, so I became Vegetarian. Peta2 helped me a lot on becoming a better person and why Im going Vegan. Love being surrounded by people who share the same interests as me, so If you have any questions feel free to ask ! :)
