As always I’ve highlighted the ingredients that we need to take a closer look at.
The next ingredient is natural flavors and this is an umbrella term, meaning that it consists of several ingredients. For vegans this is a problem because the companies don’t disclose if the ingredients are derived from animals.
Non-vegan ingredients such as milk are often disclosed because of allergy. Since Silk Soy Milk is vegan, the natural flavors are of course vegan-friendly.
I think it’s important to also share an article at National Geographic, where they disclosed that companies can use butt goo from beavers in vanilla flavors. So always be on the lookout for different flavorings since it could potentially be non-vegan.
Sugar is a controversial ingredient within the vegan community because of the risk of bone char from dead cows being used in the production process. This problem is narrowed down to refined cane sugar, which means that raw cane sugar is always vegan-friendly.
So why is the cane sugar refined? It’s because it helps the sugar fit the product better and it’s in this refining process the cane sugar could have been bleached using bone char. Because of this some vegans tends to stay away from sugar all together while others don’t. The choice is yours here.
The sugar in Silk is vegan-friendly.
