The 6 Common Foods That Vegetarians Can't Eat

August 31, 2015 2 min read

Choosing to not eat meat seems fairly straight-forward. But what many people don't realize is the amount of everyday foods that actually contain meat. From candy to beer, what can be found on the ingredient list will really surprise you! Here are just six of the most common foods that herbivores must stay away from: #1 Apple Pie With Fall around the corner, you might be craving a warm slice of all American apple pie. But for vegetarians, the lard content in this tasty treat means it's a no go. Lard is created from animal fat, so any pie baked with this ingredient is against the rules. #2 Taco Bell Reduced Fat Sour Cream taco bell sour cream vegetarian fast food Taco Bell is a place where I would suspect to find questionable traces of meat in just about anything. So it doesn't surprise me that there is some lurking in their sour cream. Gelatin is the culprit in this condiment which is made from the bones of animals. #3 White Sugar Refined white sugar comes with a sprinkling of bone char. It acts as a sort of whitening agent, because apparently white sugar is just not white enough... There now is vegan sugar available on the market which is completely ground-animal-bone free. #4 Starburst starburst vegan candy The first two ingredients in Starburst are sugar and sugar. After that comes gelatin, just like in Taco Bell's sour cream. In fact, many candies include the skin and bones of animals in their list of ingredients. #5 Activia Light Unfortunately, Activia Light has two ingredients which are not veggie-friendly. The first is the dreaded gelatin, and the second is a colouring compound called carmine. Carmine is made from powdered insect bodies that are then boiled to produce a crimson colour. #6 Beer beer guinness fish bladder Pint of fish bladder, anyone? If you're a lover of beer (especially Guinness and many other British beers) than you'll be interested to know that trace amounts of Isinglass (fish bladder) are often blended into your brew. The good news is that there are many vegan beers on the market which don't contain animal organs. What are your thoughts? Do you know of any surprising foods that aren't vegetarian friendly?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
