Gelatin is not vegan. It comes from the bones/hoofs/ligaments of animals. Instead, use agar agar.

Reviewer: Cathy from Chandler, AZ USA
To Elise from Virginia - Emes Kosher Gel is vegetarian, made from vegetable sources, and suitable for vegans. Agar-agar is not always a good substitute for gelatin.
