Accidentally Vegan

Here is a very helpful list of items found in every day grocery stores that are vegan. It's quite interesting. I keep one in my purse at all times. With the way it's broken down and in alphabetical order, it makes it very easy to find a product in any given category I'm interested in. Much easier than reading all of the fine print on the side of ten different boxes. Now, you will notice that quite a lot of the items mentioned are of the junk food persuasion. However, there are also a lot of every day staples listed. Plus, I've never met anyone who doesn't like to partake in a little junk food now and again . . .

I thought sour patch kids had gelatin.

Great list!

I could be wrong, but I thought all the sticky candies (e.g. brach orange slices) have gelatin in them. Its crazy how many foods they put gelatin in, one can never be too sure.

Sour patch kids don't have gelatin, surprisingly enough.

Your list of vegan staples found in groceries stores is identical to the one on Peta's website, labeled "Accidentally Vegan." It's a great list.

It was extremely interesting for me to read this article. Thank author for it. I like such topics and anything that is connected to them. I definitely want to read a bit more soon.

Some "chewy" candies use pectin, not gelatin, you just have to read the labels carefully.

As for the pudding mixes, anyone have any suggestions on how to make the pudding from a non-dairy milk? I've used soy milk & it doesn't "set".

there needs to be a list like this for us brits :(

If i'm not mistaken, ragu has parmesan in all their sauces? Do you know which one is vegan?

Lisa S. said...

I think they have it in all their sauces. I've gotten into the habit of buying "tomato sauce" in cans - next to the canned tomatoes & tomato paste - which is not name brand. I then make my own sauce out of it. But, I'm Italian, so it's not a big deal to whip up a sauce for dinner like that. Many of those "plain" tomato sauces work great in soups, too!

"As for the pudding mixes, anyone have any suggestions on how to make the pudding from a non-dairy milk? I've used soy milk & it doesn't set"

Use less soy milk than the box calls for, about 1 3/4 cup instead, and then after whisking it together, let it sit in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.

Thanks
