… you can buy in supermarkets?
OK, most of the time approx. 85% I buy fresh foods and make my vegan meals at home but there are occasions where I do get tempted to buy cookies. This list is handy to have min mind. From the article:
The basics are a no-brainer when you’re trying to eat a diet free of animal products. But while things like meat, eggs and cheese are easy to avoid, adhering to a vegan diet is far more nuanced than it can seem – especially when processed foods with long ingredients lists and difficult-to-pronounce names can disguise animal products.
For example, white sugar can be filtered with bone char, charred animal bones that can make sugar appear whiter (although this process is reportedly used less and less in food these days). And certain candies, which may seem vegan-friendly, include the ingredient confectioner’s glaze, made from bug secretions.
I totally agree, which is one of the reasons I prepare my own meals.
While PETA supports a strict adherence to veganism, we put the task of vigorously reducing animal suffering ahead of personal purity. Boycotting products that are 99.9 percent vegan sends the message to manufacturers that there is no market for this food, which ends up hurting more animals.
I was surprised to find the Oreo on the Vegan list, yes the ingredients are vegan however palm oil is not environment friendly as rainforests are rapidly giving way to countless rows of neatly planted oil palm trees. And this is only the tip of the iceberg.
