          What are Vegan Sweets?

          For sweets to be considered vegan, they cannot contain any animal by-products. But sweets don’t just grow on trees! They include a wide array of ingredients, some of which are derived from animals. There are several different substances that could be included in sweets that stop them from being vegan, but the one that is most commonly present in modern sweets is gelatine – which comes from the collagen of certain animals. There are several vegan replacements, but the most popular is Agar-Agar. This jelly can be obtained from seaweed and algae and possesses the same properties as gelatine, making it the perfect replacement!



          What is the Difference Between Vegan & Vegetarian Sweets?

          The difference between vegetarian and vegan diets is that vegetarians don’t avoid animal meat, whilst vegans avoid all animal by-products. You might think that this means that all vegetarian sweets are vegan, but that isn’t the case. Vegetarian sweets often include dairy products, which are a no-go for vegan-friendly products. Gelatine and dairy aren’t the only ingredients that come into play, though. For example, some Haribo lines use beeswax, which means that their Jelly Beans, Giant Strawbs and Rotella are vegetarian friendly but not vegan. This means that, unfortunately, there is no such thing as vegan Haribo sweets. Across our catalogue, you will also see several gelatine-free sweets, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that they are vegan – make sure you keep an eye out for the vegan sweets logo! All sweets and chocolates that are made with vegan recipes will be suitable for vegetarians, though.
