I'm vegetarian, not vegan but my sister is vegan. I was frosting some cupcakes and I looked at the ingredients and they look vegan to me. Can someone confirm that I'm not looking over some super sneaky non-vegan ingredient?

If it contained milk or egg ingredients, they'd have to be listed under allergens, would they not?

Most things don't list milk under allergies cause rarely is it fatal unlike eggs, nuts and wheat. It's odd that it's "Creamcheese" without any milk product what so ever......plus it's made in a plant where they do for sure use dairy. So I know most vegans wouldn't be to happy about that cause all the same machines are used....so I guess it's up to you on that one.

Doesn't it usually say when it's used on the same machines? The label did not but I guess in a frosting factory that would be inevitable huh?

Good catch on the "Natural flavors" I didn't notice that!

There used to be some kind of industrial factory by my old house. Every time we drove by it smelled like REALLY sweet frosting.... but I think it was just a bunch of chemicals  Lips sealed

It might be vegan, but it has tons of nasty chemicals as well. I work at a market that doesn't sell anything with artificial colors, flavors, preservatives... I would find out what the heck carrageenan is too. Could be made from an animal, like gelatin.

Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate caught my eye. It's made by combining lactic acid (found in blood and muscle tissue) and stearic acid (animal fat, usually refers to a fatty substance from the stomachs of pigs).  Or so I've read. Sad  Bummer.  I would think that Propylene Glycol Monostearate probably isn't vegan either.

Carrageenan is extracted from seaweed.  I would love to work somewhere like that. I used to work at a convenience store - selling cigarettes, beer, white sugar, processed meats, junk food. Bummed me out.
