As a vegan of over six years, I'm deeply saddened to find out your BEST sauce isn't certified vegan (and your others ARE!). Even more appalling is the fact that I had been eating it for SIX YEARS without even knowing it wasn't vegan!
For those who do not know:
Fire Sauce's ingredients include "natural flavors". When a customer e-mailed Taco Bell to ask whether these flavors were vegan (since Fire Sauce is excluded from Taco Bell's certified vegan list)-- this customer was informed that l cysteine was present in the sauce.
Fun fact: l cysteine can be derived from microbial sources, but instead, Taco Bell derives l cysteine from animal products, which has been confirmed by an employee.
L cysteine comes from HUMAN HAIR, DUCK FEATHERS, COW HORNS, AND PIG BRISTLES!
Taco Bell, please remove the l cysteine from Fire Sauce or simply use the microbial version! It certainly can't improve flavor as it's a dough conditioner! I highly doubt it is integral to the consistency of your sauces either, since Mild and Hot seem to do just fine!
Thank you all for your support, I hope we will soon be able to have Fire Sauce cruelty-free!
