Vega lists retinyl palmitate in their supplement ingredients. This comes from animal products and vega is completely vegan. Plant based products vitamin A is in the form of carotenoids. Does anyone know of plants that have retinyl palmitate in them or what vega is using to include it in their powders?

No plants--however, if it is synthetically produced, it would be vegan, just not exactly "natural."

hhahahahaha. I found what you found when I googled. I haven't found what I am looking for. My friend was concerned with vitamin A toxicity from retinyl palmitate in vega whole food optimizer, has higher levels than recommended for females apparently.
I love Vega products. I was under the impression that they are completely vegan and also natural/whole foods based. I just wanted confirmation.
