    Lea and Perrins unsuitable for Vegetarians!

    I was shocked to find out that Lea and Perrins contains Anchovies making it unsuitable for vegetarians.

    My other half, who has been a vegetarian for the majority of her life used to use Worcestershire Sauce on everything and is now truly gutted she can no longer use it.

    Anyone else know of any shockers like this?

    I was a veggie for 20 years, i'msure Worc. sauce was always a no no during that time.

    How about Cheese and onion crisps being non veggie and Bovril being veggie? I'm sure it's the Bovril ones. Smokey Bacon is Veggie for sure.

    Not *most* really, loads of cheese is made with non animal rennet these days, but parmesan deserves a special mention as it is *always* made from animal rennet.

    Not true. Most cheese in the UK is now made with non-animal rennet. This changed in the last 5-10 years.

    The Lee&Perrins thing is a well known fish product. There are vegetarian alternatives such as this -http://www.veggiestuff.com/acatalog/vegetarian_worcester_sauce_life.html I have a bottle at home.

    I always find shellac to be an interesting one

    The Vegetarian Society says that it is veggie but personally I wouldn't touch anything with it in

    Also bear in mind that this only refers to 'fresh' parmesan. The stuff that comes in tubs, dried, is not normally actual paremsan cheese and is usually vegetarian.

    Ooops. Slip of the finger. Shoild have said was not is. As I say I'm an ex-veggie so out of touch with these things.

    I always laugh when people describe themselves as vegetarian but then go on in the same breath to say that they do eat fish - as if it's not an animal.

    Extra Strong Mints (in fact, most mints) are not suitable for vegetarians as they contain gellatine which is produced from animal by-products, mainly bones.

    Anything containing E120, a red colouring agent made from the red body material of scale insects (Dactilopius coccus) ... this can include some spirits and red wines.

    We went to Mc'D's the other day to get some grub. The staff were shocked to find out that Fanta was not suitable for vegiterians as most of them drank it.
