View Full Version : What's 'milk' here?

Oct 27th, 2008, 06:35 PM
I was clearning out my cupboards today and came across some gravy granules I had forgotten about...I hardly ever use gravy, I dont like it really but guess I must have bought them for some reason a while ago.
I thought I might use them sooner or later then I noticed it said 'contains milk'
On checking ingredients I can seee why I bought this product as it was marked vegetarian, and I wouldn't ve recognised from the ingredients that it wasn't vegan...what have i missed?

vegetable oil
potato starch
wheat flour
caramel colour
hydrolysed vegetable protein
flavour enhancer
sodium chloride
palm oil
monosodium glutomate
soya lecithin

Any clue? I am worried now in case I have been buying non vegan stuff on other occasion and not noticed :(
Thoguh it is safe to say most of my food is fresh or cooked from scratch...so it is quite unlikely.
Thankies in advance.:)

Only thing possible I guess..though last time I had this problem with 'flavour enhcncer'..was soemthing in a packet soup mix, I rang the prouduct company up and they confirmed it was ok...grr.
Thanks folks:)

This is the same with some snacks here, my bf picked some up and we thought they were ok as the ingredients sounds vegan but then underneath it says 'contains milk'. I emailed the company to ask which ingredient has milk in it.
