Subject: Safe for Strict Vegetarians?
Dear Sir/MadamRaman Sewjugath
I would like to enquire the whether the food code additives E631 and E627 in “Cheese curls Fruit chutney” are of animal origin (insects, fish meat), as I am a strict vegetarian (no fish meat or eggs)
These two codes are present in the Cheese curls fruit chutney chips
Can you give me information as to which chips are suitable for Strict Vegetarians (That is which chips do not have anything from fish, meat, insect or any other animal origins)?
The response received was as follows:
Good morning Raman,Olivia Davies
Thank you for your interest in the products suitable for vegetarians. All E-coded ingredients are derived from plant matter, never meat.
All our products are suitable for lacto-vegetarians and many of them are suitable for vegans as well.
