    Hey, I’m new to the Vegan world and LOVING it!!!! However, I find when I look at the ingredient content on almost everything I pick up, it says either made in a factory that produces eggs or may contain traces of milk or eggs… What I’d like to know is, is it still vegan or do I throw it out? Also, what are some good vegan foods to try that don’t have any traces of animal biproducts? Thanks everyone! -Emily

    I ignore those warnings too, as @VeganCaramel, it’s not about purity and if my non-vegan friends can see me tucking into more foods then it advocates veganism even more :)

    Hey @EmilyMarieCase,

    Congrats on going vegan! 😀 @VeganCaramel is right, many of those statements are just for allergy warnings, so don’t worry. :) Being vegan is super easy, and to prove it we’ve put together a list of our fave (because there are many, many more!) accidentally vegan foods! Check them out here: http://www.peta2.com/lifestyle/guide-to-vegan-grocery-shopping/.

    That’s okay because it’s way more of a hassle to care about that and for companies to make stuff without those ingredients. I worried about the same thing too, but I asked my vegan friend and that’s what she told me. So that’s why I stopped caring.

    So it’s still vegan! OMG this cookie dough (warning: a bit pricy!) has no trace of animal products! http://www.eatpastry.com/html/index.php

    It’s just an allergy warning. Veganism is not about purity and you can be 99.9% sure there is no major trace of any animal ingredient in it if it’s not in the ingredients list.

    There are some products which have vegan certification, and you can always opt for cooking/baking your own food instead of buying prepared foods.
