As always I’ve highlighted the ingredients that we need to take a closer look at.
Natural flavors are an umbrella term, which means that companies can add any common ingredient they want to this main ingredient. This means that it can contain non-vegan ingredients and vegans would never know just my reading the ingredients label.
Vegans needs to careful when it comes to different flavoring ingredients and one example is vanilla flavor, where companies are allowed to use butt goo from beavers as an ingredient. This was disclosed by National Geographic.
Soy is a common ingredient in cooking sprays and it is 100% since it does not contain any ingredients derived from animals. However it’s also important to know that soy is one of the most common GMO crops in the US and this cause problems for vegans.
The reason is that it requires a high amount of herbicide to grow the crops and this can pollute the surrounding ecosystem causing severe damage to the environment. Therefore many vegans are staying away from GMO crops and look for products that has the label non GMO project.
