    Default Rice Dream

    Hello, I just registered to this forum.

    So I was wondering if Rice Dream ice cream is vegan? I know it's Kosher but I don't know if that applies to vegans. I've been researching kosher and found that if there is a D next to the U then means that it contains dairy. I don't like dairy.

    So I was wondering how I would be able to determine the vegan flavors from the non-vegan flavors, that is, of the Rice Dream products?

    This one has no D

    yet

    This one does.

    Hopefully that makes my issue a little more clear to you.

    Background:

    I am considering rice based ice cream instead of soy. My ice cream of choice before hand was turtle trials' brands; Purely Decadent, Soy Delicious, etc. But it hasn't been making me feel the healthiest. So I've looked to the Rice Dream ice creams on my local health foods store's shelf. But it's not certified vegan like Turtle Trials. It's Kosher, but I don't think that guaranties me anything.

    So which of the Rice Dream ice cream products are vegan, strict?

    Thanks for reading.

    They have a page which lists which of their products are vegan:

    They say that they're vegan, and are likely to be. But I'm concerned because they also have products that aren't vegan.

    So is it possible that all or some of the products in that list contain trace amounts, noticeably, over ten parts per million? Also could the natural flavors in the products be animal derived?

    Isn't there a way to be sure on this, or just sure enough? And could they get vegan certified, or is that costly?

    Anyway, thanks for your reply.

    If trace amounts in the 10/10,000,000 ratio worry you, you'd probably be better off asking them directly.

    Are you a Self Exhausting Microgram-Oriented Vegan?

    It looks to me like the products that they claim aren't vegan don't deliberately contain non-vegan ingredients, but may contain traces of dairy on ingredients supplied by third parties. The natural flavourings won't be animal derived, or they wouldn't label it vegan.

    But, yeah, animal product contamination is a fact of life. For instance grain products will have insect contamination at some low level.
