Look at the post by kpickell. It is from 2003, but they are talking about the same thing. Topher said it was vegan because it only said vitamin d and didn’t specify if it was d3 or not. Kpickell wrote the company and the response was
“Thank you for contacting 8th Continent with your inquiry. The Vitamin D added to 8th Continent soymilk is from animal origin. It is Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) from wool fat (lanolin). Thus, it is not a vegan product.”

So just because it says vitamin d dose not mean that it is vegan.

ah yeah, i didn't read Hot-Stuff Topher's post. If something only says 'vitamin D' then I wouldn't buy it, unless it says 'Suitable for Vegans' on it too. I have never even seen the product

I just checked on the 8th continent website and they say they use vitamin d2, not d3.

I hate having to inspect my food so carefully!!!! I dislike that being vegan makes me so different when it comes to what I can eat. Don’t get me wrong, this is not to say that I want to stop being vegan, I just wish everyone was. I wish that I could go to IHOP to get vegan pancakes, or that I could eat anything at my friend’s houses.


DAMN IT WORLD…. BE VEGAN ALREADY!!!!!

wordlife, it gets a bit tedious inspecting stuff, so I generally stick to what I know, and I don't bother investigating stuff that may / may not be vegan, I just leave it out altogether, and I generally don't eat at friends houses or restaurants either because of it

I went onto the 8th continent website and looked at the ingredient list of their soymilks.

I went on the 8th continent website and on the ingredients it says Vitamin D2 (which is vegan) so... It looks like they may have changed it.

I hear that! It is hard, but things really worth it usually are.

Well I got a reply today for 8th continent….

Thank you for contacting 8th Continent with your inquiry. Unfortunately, at this time, we cannot state that any of the 8th Continent Soy Milk products are vegan.



We hope you find this information helpful. Please let us know if we can help you again.
