Is It Vegan is a tool for anyone interested in eliminating animal products from their diet.

Simply scan the UPC bar code on the package of any food or beverage product, and you'll see:

Whether the product is vegan, vegetarian, or neither.

A summary classifying the list of ingredients.

A detail list showing which ingredients are vegan, vegetarian, non-vegetarian, etc.

And the original (unclassified) list of ingredients for the product.

After putting each ingredient into a category, Is It Vegan then decides whether the product is suitable for a vegan or vegetarian diet.

Is It Vegan has information on hundreds of thousands of food and beverage products and verifies each of them using a master list containing thousands of pre-classified ingredients.

Users now have the option to upload products, making our database larger than ever!

Notice: Data on products outside the USA is extremely limited at this time. For best results, please scan food products from the USA.

iOS 6.0+ is required to use this app!

So disappointed - please support /fix this !

I came across this app purely by chance and was overjoyed as it said it would do exactly what I wanted it to do. I fully took on board the info that it was more USA biased and less for the UK , but there was a facility to add products and bar codes to get them added. I even recommended this app to a friend. The first few times it worked efficiently and well. I was so pleased. Scanning was easy and I got an immediate response. When something (UK product) wasn't recognised I tried to add it. That was when things started to go downhill. Ever since I have been getting a connection error (on 3G and on wifi). All my other apps are working fine. Please please please fix this so I can use your app !!

Needs An Update

I love the idea of this app, I can definitely see myself using it if it worked. When I go to take a photo of the product to see if it's vegan, the screen is just black and then the app goes weird and crashes? I hope it gets fixed soon :(

This has been a huge comfort and support in my gradual transition to veganism. It's so useful to be able to scan products in the shops and get peace of mind either way.

You can also submit photos for items that are not in the database, which is a great tool.
