Companies should provide labels on foods that contain gelatin.

I have been vegetarian all of my life. At least that's what I thought. as it turns out this ingredient harmlessly labeled as gelatin is not vegetarian, and definitely not vegan. According to PETA, gelatin is protein obtained by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments, and/or bones with water. In essence, it’s made primarily from the stuff meat industries have left over —pork skins, horns, and cattle bones! Technically not even a food source, it’s used as a thickening agent in a number of products and gives food a soft, squishy consistency. I know it’s gross and I hate to rain down on your gummy bear parade, but you and your kids really shouldn’t be eating this stuff. I don’t even know why it’s legally permissible to be considered a “food” product. Some of the many food items containing gelatin are listed here.
Pop-tarts w/ frosting
Other frosted cereal
Skittles, Star-bursts, Jr. mints, Trident gum, M&M’s, Snicker bars
Frozen vegetables (in a bag)
Coffee, milk substitutes
Hostess cupcakes- Hostess brand
This disturbs me that when somebody makes me hot chocolate with marshmallows, I have to request that they make it again with no marshmallows. Most people don't know what it is even if they are meat eaters. I feel if everybody was informed of what gelatin is, nobody would eat it again.
