This list is handy to keep with you when you’re going grocery shopping.

Animal ingredients are often called by their obscure technical names. So here is a list helpful list to fold up and
keep in your wallet or purse. *Note: some of the ingredients listed below may no longer be animal based due to the advancements in synthetics and their costs compared to traditional
animal counterparts. *Ingredients listed in an asterisk are ones that sometimes come from plants or have synthetic alternatives.
