VEGANS!! PUT THE WINE GLASS DOWN

April 9, 2016

I like to drink socially or alone, when i eat and when i am happy, I enjoy a drink as much as the next person, so here is the frustrating thing

Many companies refine and clarify their wines and champagnes with non-vegan filling agents.

They use this process to remove bad flavors or unsightly elements while creating “fine” wines. After much research, I compiled this list along with great resources to assist us in avoiding these animal by products.

Some by-products that could be lurking in non-vegan conventional  beer and wines are:

  • isinglass (fish bladder by-products)
  • blood 
  • egg whites
  • casein (milk protein)
  • gelatin (derived from bones and connective tissues)
  • fish gelatin
  • egg albumin
  • chitin/chitosan (derived for the shells of crabs or lobsters)

 

We can identify vegan wines by reading the label, looking for the words “vegan” and “unfiltered” printed on the label.
