Does anyone know of some animal derived additives? I'm aware of gelatine & glycerin, but not much else :s

Ew, the thought of eating ground up hooves and boiled skin is gross! :/

I steer clear of:

- Gelatine
- Rennet (used in cheeses but I don't eat cheese anyway)
- Code 120 (crushed beetle shells- used in red colouring in lollies, drinks etc).
- Code 471 (can be animal or vegetable derived. Mainly in breads. I just stick to Helgas which is all good!)

Other than that I'm not too fussy thesedays.

EDIT: I think glycerin can be of animal or vegetable origin.

I think it's pretty much what's left after they've used the "good" meat, so gristle, necks, cartilage. yeaaah you can use your imagination, hah.

Watch out for E542 - bone phosphate. It can be found in some toothpastes and I think some white sugars.
