    I wish they could put that in the allergen list, but I guess no one is actually allergic to honey...?
    I find honey the easiest non-vegan item to overlook when there there is a long list of ingredients. As you say Troutina, it doesn't get put with the allergens. It just sort of sits there amongst the other ingredients trying to look all inconspicuous and innocent.

    Oh my! I'm sorry to hear that, Troutina. Was there not even a label saying "New and improved" or something like that on the packaging?

    Got an email back from Sainsbury's, saying they need to "investigate (my) query a little further". Well! Hopefully hear from them soon.
    Yeah it does say New 'Improved' Recipe but we just didn't notice it when we were shopping.

    Here's an email reply to my complaint about the new labelling:

    Dear *****

    Thanks for your email. I'm sorry that you've lost confidence in our labelling of vegan products. I understand your disappointment especially as you've been full of praise for us in the past.
    I'm happy to tell you that our change will make it even easier for people to select food that's suitable for vegans. The V symbol is now for vegetarians and for vegans it's the same V but has the words and vegans in the circle as well. This removes any ambiguity whatsoever. Our Taste the Difference products are the first to undergo this exciting new move with other products following suit as they go through the redesign process. Rest assured we're committed to our vegan customers.
    I trust that you find this information useful and that you can shop with us with confidence.

    Kind regards

    I've long wondered why Sainsbury's meat free mince isn't labelled as vegan when the ingredients would suggest that it is. I emailed them and this is their reply:

    Quote Sainsburys
    Dear 'Glen'

    Thanks for your email.

    I've checked with our suppliers and the reason this isn't suitable for vegans is that there's a cross contamination risk with egg white powder which is used in their factory.

    I trust that you find this information useful.

    Kind regards

    Hmmm...... so there is a risk of cross-contamination. Personally that says vegan to me. YMMV.

    I agree - any manufactured product has a cross-contamination risk unless it's made in a 100% vegan factory. I know manufacturers and retailers are worried about getting sued by people with allergies but you'd think they could come up with a label like "vegan ingredients - risk of cross-contamination" to cover their @rses, then we could decide for ourselves whether the products are vegan enough.

    My Sainsbury's has now got the basic mince pies in (yes I know it's now Feb), and they are no longer labeled vegan. They have now added whey powder to the ingredients!

    it's a continuous problem. The legal guidelines that now exist and those from the vegan society say that even when cross contamination is possible products may still be vegan and labelled accordingly provided that cross contamination potential is labelled accordingly. Meanwhile there is so much out there that is suitable and no labelled because of over zealous labeling by supermarkets (we all remember the westons cider fiasco). Costa hot chocolate when made with soya milk is fine provided you don't have the top chocolate sprinkles on top but because the hot chocolate powder is produced in the same factory as milk products costa state that it is not suitable for vegans. (this is aside from their monkey advertising related issues of course).
    Sainsbury's though do seem to be particularly restrictive when it comes to vegan labeling. The new symbol actually makes things more difficult for myself as it involves reading (due to learning difficulties this is not always the easiest thing in the world).
    If I sink to the bottom I can run to the shore.

    I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but the Spanish organic olive oil is about the cheapest olive oil I've seen in Sainsbury's, at 35p per 100ml as opposed to about 38p for the non organic. I hope it's nice as I got two bottles

    When I went to Sainsburys this morning it they had a new own brand range of veggie meat substitutes called 'Love Soya' which I hadn't seen before. Sadly most of them seem to contain egg but the soya mince looked okay for vegans. I can't find much info about it on the website, perhaps its so new they haven't got all the info up.

    Original Source showergels @ 0.90 in my local Sainsbobs this evening. Assume it is nationwide? I was trying to work out when the offer expired from the little tag thing (mine are pretty bad at 'accidentally?' letting the offers lapse), but couldn't get my head around it.

    Anyway, some new flavours if it is still on - including one that looks like Polyfilla. Mmmm, manly.

    I've been buying the pain au chocolat over the last few weeks and I must admit we've got a bit addicted. I went back last week and they don't have them. Maybe I was the only person buying them.

    Yup, love soya range. They also had mini sausage rolls, but not sure if it said vegan on label. The sausage themselves are pretty nice - possibly better cold in a sandwich.

    Yeeees, maybe. Does it say suitable for vegetarians on the packet anywhere? It would be stupid marketing and recipe devising to miss the meat free market but I didn't see that on the website info (hopefully I wasn't seeing something that is blatently obvious) and I'd worry about the glycerine.

    Otherwise, wow! Iced mince pies that would be guaranteed not to be taken by the youngsters - anything that says gluten free or organic on the packet gets left well alone. Well spotted Firestorm.
