As always I’ve highlighted the ingredients that we need to take a closer look at.
Natural flavors is a very popular ingredient in many products and this always causes a problem for vegans, because it’s an umbrella term, meaning that it can consist of several ingredients. The source of these ingredient are almost never disclosed on the ingredients label.
This means that we don’t know if the ingredients in natural flavors are animal-sourced or sourced from plants. The only way to be sure is to contact the company or if the product is labeled vegan, then the natural flavors would be vegan-friendly.
Knowing if a product is vegan or not can sometimes be tricky. Ingredients might look vegan-friendly, but the reality is that they could contain ingredients derived from animals or exploiting animals in the production process.
Natural flavors is a typical example where vegans needs to be careful since the source is almost always unknown. This is why I’m making these article to help you find the vegan-friendly products to make your vegan journey easier.
Thanks for reading, take care!
