It’s Animal Cell Meat (ACM).

Synthetic or cell cultured meat and dairy is NOT animal-free. It’s grown outside the body of the animal from cells collected from the animal. It’s Animal Cell Meat (ACM). It’s made out of cells of animals, not plant cells, not chemicals. It’s not synthetic. Polyester is synthetic fabric, silk is not. Silk comes from anContinue reading “It’s Animal Cell Meat (ACM).”

Shoprite: Africa’s biggest supermarket considers pulling out of Nigeria 

TA-FC ClipBoard: I see Shoprite in America as having many problems, the biggest being living in the past, providing customers food items that are long outdated and passe to the point of wondering why they linger. Well, retail outlets like Shoprite are the reason, and unless they update their supermarket product lines to primarily plant-based,Continue reading “Shoprite: Africa’s biggest supermarket considers pulling out of Nigeria “

The Contradiction Issue

Upon choosing a healthier more compassionate diet, you will be challenged by those who have not yet taken that step, to defend your decision to not eat animals. They will argue that your animal-free diet contradicts your other animal using behaviors, thus making the issue of killing animals not worthy of consideration. They will pointContinue reading “The Contradiction Issue”

I Want An Animal-Free Mall

I WANT AN ANIMAL-FREE MALL That’s right. A mall. Animal-free. A big one. With lots of glitter and big lights. With every kind of shop. Grocery, bakery, deli, shoe store, pet supply shop, clothes, hair salon using only cruelty-free products, and on and on, restaurants too. Good ones. I have a vision. And it’s aContinue reading “I Want An Animal-Free Mall”

Contains No Animal Products

The word PRODUCT. There are many definitions and uses for the word ‘product’. Most manufacturers at this time are not going to put on their labels ‘contains no animals’. But that’s what I’m working toward. Right now the goal is ‘contains no animal products’. It’s straight forward in a language people understand.

CHOCOLOVE ginger crystallized in dark chocolate

When Steve brings home specialty chocolate bars, I rarely refuse at most half a bar. We both love ginger flavor in just about anything. The crystallized texture was there, and a little reminiscent of the crystals one feels on the mouth when eating grana padano cheese, but the ginger flavor was absolutely missing. That leadsContinue reading “CHOCOLOVE ginger crystallized in dark chocolate”

Labels + Current Diet Categories

Hardly anyone knows what vegan is even today nearly 40 years later. They’ve become familiar with the word, but not the meaning. They don’t get why vegans won’t eat a vegetarian burger made with egg whites, or that fish and chicken are animals. And what’s wrong with cheese? That’s not an animal. Well, real vegansContinue reading “Labels + Current Diet Categories”

The Plant-Based Pitfall

The current trend in labeling a manufactured food, that CONTAINS NO ANIMAL PRODUCTS (CNAP), is to label it PLANT-BASED rather than VEGAN, or ANIMAL-FREE. Some worry about the negativity associated with animal rights groups, so veer from the usage of the word vegan on their product even though it might be vegan.

Foreign Foods In Foreign Lands

I don’t like French food in France. I don’t like Russian food in Russia, I don’t like Hawaiian food in Hawaii. I don’t like Asian food in Hawaii. I don’t like Italian food in Italy. I don’t like German food in Germany. I don’t like Mexican food in Mexico. I don’t like English food inContinue reading “Foreign Foods In Foreign Lands”

WHAT CONSTITUTES ANIMAL-FREE TO ME

 ANIMAL-FREE VEGAN COMPANIES ARE STILL IN THEIR BIRTHING STAGE What this means is that for many companies to get up and running they need to use the factories that other companies use to manufacture their goods that do contain animal products. They basically rent out the facilities, thus the common labeling of possible and/or tracesContinue reading “WHAT CONSTITUTES ANIMAL-FREE TO ME”
