Unlike certified organic products there is no government agency or official standard for vegan certification. In our investigation, at this time vegan certification is done by non-regulated organizations who take payment from companies in exchange for their own certification, which may or may not include a visit from the organization or any kind of verification that the product indeed is vegan. Essentially, any company who wants to promote their product as a certified vegan can obtain what appears to be an official-looking badge of certification to enhance their marketing. The reality is that the ingredients list should confirm whether or not the product is vegan. If an ingredient is known to be sourced from plants or animals, any transparent company will be able to provide clarification which source it is from. That said, we can confirm with you that this product contains no ingredients that are sourced from animals, and is vegan.
