Vegan? Am I missing something?


Some drinks contain fish gelatine. Such as beers and even Coke in some countries (such as Ireland). Not all beers mind. So its not crazy to add it as a footnote.
Never realised that flavoured water included animal products to be honest... Always thought that it was water, sugar and 0.0005% natural juice..

Are Ribena products suitable for vegetarians and vegans?
All our products are suitable for vegetarian and vegan diets. We do not use any animal derived ingredients in our products and during the manufacturing process.

Never gave it a second thought that Ribera wasn’t veggie
It's still horrible to drink
No sweeteners is the selling point for me
more one pop plastic waste! Avoid.

Cap and bottle = widely recycled.

One use design, uses shed-loads of energy energy to initially get the initial by product together then produce, then distribute, then "hopefully" collect for sorting, transport (maybe 1/2 way across the world) then transported to another facility, then re-chipped & sold on as pellets to another manufacturing plant.

If only this insipid drink was as simple to recycle as you infer.
At least you get more for your product buck with a concentrated drink watered down to taste.

There ought to be a big old carbon tax on this schmutter to reflect the "throwaway" aspect of this crud.

Just curious did the original ribena have anything that wasn't vegan free in the ingredients? (I'm genuinely not sure).

I've seen the gluten free marketing hype that companies use and it's disgusting.
Gluten free rice.... Erm... Last time I checked that was always gluten free. But you can find 6 different companies selling small packs of rice for £3+. All because they brand it as gluten free.

I'm curious is vegan free now the in thing and it'll be packed on to everything to help increase the price. (maybe not on this case with the drink as it's not pasted all over the front off it like the rice usually is).

I'm unsure if it was always vegan or not to be honest. I'm all for companies clearly labeling whether a product is suitable for different allergies/choices etc with a label on the front on the back but I don't agree with companies putting a mark up on it if it's naturally free of those allergens.

Ridiculous post. There can't be much for you on this site.
Allegedly a typical person guys / drinks from 70 or more plastic "pet" bottles per year, some folk far more, ..that's a lot of waste.
It's called reality, if you care to "follow" processes we are asked to adhere to, some work & some are "feel good" like when 1000's of tonnes of fast iron railings & the like we're chopped down "for the war effort" ..so you scrutinise what / how far you want to go with something or drop it altogether.

Which is why I use reuseable stainless steel & aluminium drinks containers, or choose my recycling charities carefully for max profitability vs being fisted fiscally, (and the like), some things you can do better with, & some things you are stuck with dumb logistics.

Hukd delivers more than cheap watery vegan drinks thank goodness.

I remember Wagamama used to leave the aubergine out of their salad if you were vegan as they said the raw vegetable comes coated in an animal wax... I guess you never really know what they put where unless you really research.
Hang on a minute, this can't be vegan? It's in a bottle made from processed dinosaur juice...
