Annals of self-promotion: we’re angry about additives!  »

Laura wrote about eggs in veggie food products like Quorn and Lightlife for SF Weekly! Using eggs in otherwise vegan products is unnecessary and inconvenient and what the hell, companies?

Meave got angry about gelatin hiding everywhere. Seriously, everywhere! Every time the pretty ladies in the commercials say “collagen,” imagine “bone from the slaughter of cattle [that] is cleaned, degreased, dried, sorted, and crushed to a particle size of about 1-2 cm. The pieces of bone are then treated with dilute hydrochloric acid to remove mineral salts. The resulting sponge-like material is called ossein.” Yeah. A "sponge-like material" made from dead cows’ bones. That’s what you’re slapping on your faces, and you can’t even absorb it through your skin!

What are you all raging about today?
