What’s The Difference Between Vegetarian and Vegan Sweets?
Many people are unaware that certain sweets contain animal and insect-derived ingredients, such as Carmine. Another name for Carmine is Cochineal, which is essentially a red colouring extracted from beetle shells. Another popular ingredient used in many sweets in the market today is beeswax.
Vegan sweets will have no animal or insect-based ingredients, such as beeswax, whereas vegetarian sweets could have beeswax included in the ingredients. Perhaps the worst culprit used in billions of sweets worldwide is Gelatine.
Gelatine is the skin and connective tissue of pigs or cows. Food and sweets, in particular, are designed to look good; you have probably heard the saying that people eat with their eyes. For sweets such as gummy bears, gelatin is dyed using bright colours to make them look much more attractive. Hopefully, this little-known fact will make you even more determined to switch to vegetarian or vegan sweets, with Quiggins your manufacturer of choice!!
