What does ‘gelatin (sulphites)’ mean?

I’m a new-ish vegetarian and my mom made the family a packet mix lemon cheesecake today, I was about to have a slice but decided I had better check the packet and right down the bottom it says ‘gelatin (sulphites)’. What are gelatin sulphites? does it still mean a meat product?

Thanks, also if you could tell me any other tricky things to watch out for with meat products I will appreciate it! xx

  1. it mean bone marrow. stay away. if you have any questions about being a vegetarian then you should contact me ([email protected]) there are probably lots of things you eat and dont know have meat in them (such as Kraft dinner)

  2. Gelatin is a natural source for sulphites ,so stay away from it . u already know that gelatin is derived from the collagen inside animals’ skin and bones .

  3. Gelatin is made from the bones, hooves, and hides of slaughtered animals. It’s used as a thickening agent in A LOT of foods, like marshmallows, certain yogurts, and even cereals!

  4. i think of the ask your self comes from the two different which skill of the interest jelly, and additionally the belief of mixing those 2 spreads together. It does look as though an extraordinary mixture. i attempted it as quickly as – i don’t likely like peanut butter – yet concept the jam/jelly could make it flavor greater effective. I not at all had yet another.
