Gelatine-Free Sweets

Gelatine-Free Sweets
octubre 29, 2018 admin

Halloween is almost here so if witches and wizards are your thing you might be filling your cupboards in preparation for visits from ghoulish guests in search of treats. But make sure you are not stocking up on something truly terrifying – gelatine. If you are filling your cupboards in preparation for your ghoulish guests make sure you are not stocking up on something truly terrifying – gelatine.

Gelatine is made by boiling down the bones, skin and tendons of slaughtered animals, mainly pigs and cows, many of whom have spent their entire lives suffering on factory farms. On factory farms animals are crammed together, often kept in cages and crates where they are unable to see sunlight, breathe fresh air or even fully extend their limbs.

Luckily, there are loads of gelatine free sweets on the market, so you can keep your trick or treaters happy without harming animals.

Find out more by watching our new video with Made in Chelsea’s Lucy Watson and Tiffany Watson, who share their favorite gelatine-free treats and read about some of the gelatine free sweets currently on the market below – all sweets listed are vegan friendly.
