All Good Health chips flavors except Good Health Kettle Potato Chips Avocado Oil Lime Ranch are vegan. The reason Lime Ranch is not vegan is because it contains ingredients derived from cows milk.

As always I’ve highlighted the ingredients that we need to take a closer look at.
Several ingredients derived from milk can be found in Lime Ranch flavor such as whey and buttermilk powder. These ingredients are not vegan since they are made from cow’s milk.
This ingredient is a very discussed ingredient within the vegan community and with good reason. Sugar that you normally see in products are either beet sugar or cane sugar. In the candy and snacks industry cane sugar is the most popular of the two.
This can become a problem for vegans. In order for cane sugar to fit the product it needs to be refined and a very common practice is to bleach the sugar using bone char from dead cows. In it’s natural form cane sugar is brown and vegan, but if bleached using bone char then it becomes a non vegan-friendly ingredient.
Natural flavor is an ingredient can be found in many products and this is an ingredient that vegans needs to be aware of. The main reason is the fact that companies can hide ingredients and call it natural flavors. So knowing if it’s animal sourced or plant-based is near impossible unless disclosed on the ingredients label.
More often than not, this ingredient is in fact vegan-friendly and I often treat is as such. If you want to be 100% sure, the contact the company and ask.
Are Product Vegetarian?
All Flavors of Good Health chips suited for all vegetarian with the exception of the flavor Lime Ranch, which is suited for lacto-ovo and lacto vegetarians.
