Kikkoman is manufactured all up in the guts with 'isinglass'*sp?, something to do with fish gelatin, so it's not on the label.

re: vegan fragrances, I found EVOKE, it's a spray deo at the supermarket that is Against Animal Testing and also uses Ozone friendly Hydrocarbon propellant.

Hey does anyone know if YumYum Chicken flavoured noodles are vegan?

the black phoenix alchemy lab do vegan perfume
like everyone else has said lush do solid perfumes

i believe that perfumery which is either up vulcan lane or one of those lanes that connects to high street in ak which is called WORLD BOTIQUE or WORLD PERFUMES or something, they also do a range of vegan perfumes. they have comprehensive ingedients lists behind the counter

they also have a range of about 100 fragrances which are designed to inspire memories from childhood, they have play-doh, freshly baked cookies, pine needles, mowed grass, all sorts of stuff.

another way to make your own on the cheap is get almond oil in a small vial and mix it with a few drops drops of your favourite essential oils
orange and ylang ylang are quite good together
jasmine and sandalwood
dont use patchouli or you will smell like you have dreads.

ultimately the whole practice is quite hessian so just buy some perfume.

I have had the lush solid perfume for about 2 months now, use it every day, and haven't even used a 10th of it.

I just got some Home Brand pastry. Appears to be vegan, and has 6 sheets in a pack, where New Way has only 4 for about the same price.

World Beauty - they stock Demeter Fragrance Library.

I haven't seen the ingredients lists - but i 'spose they're as vegan as any fragrance company since the main reason ingredients on perfume aren't listed is because they contain lab built sythethic molecules.
Are IFF, Firmenich, Givaudan, and Symrise squirting these molecules in the eyes of bunnies?

Demter have said this about their products re veganess:
Demeter wrote:This is a question we are being asked regularly, and we are doing a survey of our own products to try and make a determination. At this point, I can tell you we add nothing to the fragrances, but I would recommend sticking with the florals for now. We are launching a redesigned website on May 1, and hope to have a list of those fragrances that are 100% natural, and those that are 100% vegan.

World Beauty is charging something like $69 for 30ml, which is kind of crazy when they're only $US20 and cheaper from online perfume discounters. I really like the Fig Leaf one.

CB I Hate Perfume might be worth a look for those into Demeter and BPAL. They're made by the man who started Demeter and have a similar concept but more complex fragrances (though they have a line of single notes too) and apparently better quality (haven't tried any yet). Can get decants at The Perfumed Court, who also carry a bunch of liquid Lush perfumes from the limited editions they've done. I really like the Lush solids though. There is also Lush's UK sister company thing B Never To Busy To Be Beautiful who have lots of vegan perfumes and make up (and really expensive international shipping, but if you can do a group order it's not so bad). I like a few of the ones I've tried from them but the rose in some of them is weird.

A top vegan product for sale in Hamilton at Auteurhouse and Indy Grocery is a book called Clean Green and Cruelty Free? from Wellington's Rebel Press. Very good resource book with loads of stats for vegans who have found themselves in shit conversations with flesh eaters without access to facts. It's also available for free in PDF on the Rebel Press website.

Pass it on.

Indomie Mi Goreng contains phenylalanine, so individuals suffering from phenylketonuria should avoid the seasoning. Indomie Mi Goreng also contains Monosodium glutamate.

There, I've fixed that page... Wikipedia isn't necessarily truth, that whole thing is possibly a prank by someone who knows lots of vegetarians/vegans eat those noodles...

I have stopped eating Mi Goreng... but I still don't know if there is chicken in them, since some of the flavours do specifically list chicken in the ingredients... so to hide it on others would be a little odd. And the Flavour Enhancer mentioned I guess would be 631, can (but not necessarily) be made from meat or sardines.

...because meat eaters never instigate the conversation, and absolutely never, ever give vegans shit for being weird/unhealthy/faggy/etc. And because it's terrible and repressive and unacceptable to ever talk about your ethics, beliefs, and choices, because you might hurt someone's feelings.

So you dont know if there is chicken or not in them, but you have a source that tells you there possibly is (50/50) and you cover it up thats absolutely! fucked!

If you read the page (I even quoted it) you'd see that I just added the little [citation needed] thing, because it is needed. And anyway, there's no source that says there possibly is... just someone who decided to put it in the article.

Is there a vegan soy sauce available? One that's actually vegan, and not just basing it on the ingredients list.....
