Omgosh At school today i had no food and someone took pity on me and gave me some chips, i opened them and ate a few like four jay jays, and i only just then realized that they were chicken flavoured and there were no ingridients on the packet so i assumed i had done a very horrible thing and eaten chicken flavour with parts of animal in it.. I feel like crap! and so uninspired now...

has chicken flavour got chicken or animal traces in it??
And if it does, Am i a terrible person!!? cry scared

Usually it's just flavouring. If it's milk or whey you're worried about, most likely it will contain that.

Don't feel bad. We've probably all made mistakes without realising something isn't veg! What matters is that you are making an effort not to harm animals  happy

Don't worry, everyone makes mistakes. You didn't buy the chips so you didn't contribute to any cruelty (even if they did contain chicken or dairy).

Interestingly, sometimes "chicken" flavour is entirely vegan! You can buy chicken seasoning that is veg, and some 'chicken' instant noodles I think are vegan as well!

Don't beat yourself up about it. Like ckimana said, what matters is that you're taking steps to help animals. And every step counts! happy

There's a good chance there was milk or something in them but you had no idea and you didn't eat them intentionally.

Don't feel bad because everyone has made a mistake, especially when they first go veg.

Yep, some 'chicken flavourings' are artificial and some is the real stuff. If it says 'natural flavouring' then it most likely came from the animal. I think there are also a few numbers which indicate that it came from chicken.

Ironically, there are so many numbers that go into growing those chickens that we don't get told about.

An ingredient with numbers isn't natural.... which in this case could almost be a good sign!
