Gelatin is not vegan. The typical method of obtaining the protein is by boiling skin, tendons, bones and/or ligaments with water. The initial ingredients are usually derived from pigs or cows.
Gelatin is a popular additive in face masks, shampoos and more. It is also used to make candies, ice cream, marshmallows, yoghurts, and cakes. Agar-agar, a product that is marketed as gelatin is obtained from sea-weed and hence is 100 percent vegan.
Agar-agar is just one among the numerous vegan gelatin substitutes. There are other vegan substitutes for gelatin-like carrageenan, vegan gel, xanthan gum, and more. Carrageenan is derived from Irish moss, a type of red seaweed. It is a better coagulant than agar-agar when used to make jellies. Vegan gel is made by mixing vegan gelatin substitutes with glucose syrup, stabilizers and gums. Xanthan gum is made by fermenting glucose, lactose or sucrose derived from soya beans or corn.
