Doesn’t it sometimes seem like you need a chemistry degree to be able to understand what’s in packaged food? Good luck figuring out if the ingredients are remotely vegan, right? Actually, it’s not that bad:
As mentioned, the Vegetarian Resource Group has a great online guide (also available in print) that you can use to navigate your way through the world of ingredients. I was reminded of this in their latest newsletter which mentioned Domino’s Pizza using a synthetic source of L-cysteine (we talked about that here, eeewwwww.)
I think the future for vegan-friendly additives is bright, like I explain in the video, and tomorrow we’ll talk a bit about how I handle weird food ingredients.
