are trader joe’s joe’s o’s vegan?

~ this unhappy news might be interesting to our vegan friends. trader joe’s joe’s o’s cereal is not vegan.

there is more than one origin for the vitamin d that is frequently added to humans’ processed foods. vitamin d2 is vegan, as it is derived from fungal growth or yeast; on the other hand, vitamin d3 , (sometimes listed in ingredients as cholecalciferol) is derived from lanolin through washing sheep’s wool. both of the ideas are crazy; what mad scientist was able to convince people that processed breakfast cereal would be improved by rinsing it with wool? in any event, d2 often is in soymilk brands like silk and organic valley, while d3 is added to fortified breakfast cereals such as cheerios, all-bran, grape-nuts, cascadian farm’s organic purely o’s, and especially—to the point of this post—trader joe’s joe’s o’s:

Hi Kim,

Our Trader Joe’s Joe’s O’s are not Vegan due to the Vitamin D being derived from sheep.

Thank you,

Comments: Hello, I am trying to determine whether there are any animal
ingredients in your Joe’s O’s cereal product. Many cereals have a
Vitamin D (D3) that is derived from sheep. Can you tell me the source
of your Vitamin D? Thank you!

wieringo is the nicest guy we ever have ‘met’ at a convention. whereas many comic idols are rockstars about their work, charging cash for sketches or refusing to sign books outside of specified ‘autograph hours’, we came across wieringo sitting alone at a table at dragon*con, politely sketching anything requested – the flash, robin, wonder woman – by an enormous line of fanboys. for us, he sketched out a spider-man mugshot, natch.

(no, this is not the sketch; this is from the cover to ‘sensational’ #10)
