Are SaltStick products vegetarian? Vegan?
SaltStick Caps are vegetarian in that they do not contain any meat or meat products. The magnesium stearate and stearic acid used in small amounts in SaltStick Caps for the encapsulation process are derived from vegetable sources. The L-leucine in SaltStick Caps Plus is a purified amino acid originally derived from duck feathers. The vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) used in both products is a pure ingredient, originally derived from an animal source, and is the same material that our bodies synthesize in sunlight. Therefore both products are vegetarian in that they do not contain meat or processed animal parts but do contain ingredients of animal origin and are therefore not considered strictly vegan.
