Hi guys,
I believe Optimum nutrition and NOW foods both have vegan BCAAs. I take both. Great stuff. I particularly like NOW foods products for creatine and other aminos. Oh, and also malodextrin. I'm sure there are other brands out there. I'll do some more research...

Please let us know what they say. Based on earlier posts in this thread, neither of those brands are vegan as of October 2008, but that changes all the time.

Regarding ON's BCAA powder I got this from their customer afairs:
"No, unfortunately our BCAA powder is not vegan-friendly. We use individual amino acids in this product, not protein. It is not vegan since at least one of the aminos is animal derived."

So the answer is No, ON's BCAA powder is NOT Vegan.

I would like to know anyone can confirm if the BodyTech brand is vegan friendly:

They state it does NOT contain: Yeast, Corn, Wheat, Dairy, Fish, Preservatives, Artificial Colors or Flavors Added. Free Form Amino Acids.

I checked with Controlled Labs this morning, and Purple Wraath is vegan. It's a pre-workout EAA + beta-alanine + other goodies supplement. Their aminos are derived from grain.

Guy, sorry for bumping this up but i've started a brand new topic about a similar question and noone answered, so maybe you will.

Can we consider vegan all the BCAAs created with Ajinomoto and Kyowa method?

I think yes but i'm not sure..

Another year, another request for vegan BCAAs. Now Sports powder states that their product contains milk on their label. Has anyone found a verifiable source of BCAAs? Thanks!
Best,
Heath

All i've found is this list from Vegan Strength: http://www.veganstrength.org/articles/v ... pplements/

I rely on that list and on what i've found on this topic.
I'm pretty sure that BCAA created with Ajinomoto and Kyowa method are vegan, because they should use only plant based sources....but i'm not 100% sure..
