Hoping for rain


Taking a break from writing his new book, Erik Marcus, author of Vegan: The New Ethics of Eating, wrote up a nice column for his site titled “Hoping for Rain.” In it he discusses the finding that Twinlab vitamins contain gelatin, even though they don’t say so on the ingredients, which is rightfully angering vegans who have trusted Twinlab’s B-12 supplements.

He also talks about a recent discovery of his own that the generally vegan Soy Delicious ice cream (my personal favorite line of soy ice cream) now has a product with “organic egg powder.” Why a company that makes soy ice cream (generally marketed towards vegans) would include eggs all of a sudden is kind of strange.

He also goes on to discuss a friend of his that is trying out “veganic farming.” That is, organic farming that doesn’t support the killing/slaughter industries at all (meaning no bloodmeal fertilizer, fish parts, or manure) and ends the article on a feel-good note.

Erik’s one of the community’s best writers and this article is a perfect example why.
