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.

Neat little application.

This app needs to be updated very soon - it's starting to slow down my phone (iPhone 6) because it's not compatible with the current iOS. Other than that, it's excellent. The database isn't very large yet, but the app makes it easy to add products for review when an unknown product comes up. It also allows us to choose if sugar is vegetarian or vegan, which is a nice feature. After using the free version for about a year, I decided to upgrade to support the app. There's not many similar ones out there, and this one is the most user friendly and simple without killing my phone's battery.

Great but needs an update on its food

Its a great concept and is super easy to use...but I'd say that 2/3 of the items I scan return an "unknown product" response. That's really frustrating.

When it does recognize the product, it provides excellent information.

This would be/will be a 5 star tool for vegans once it has more food products in the app.

Definitely a great app for vegans and vegetarians

I've bee looking for such an app for a long time. I've been vegetarian for a very long time and vegan as much as possible for a couple of years now. This apps is very helpful on a daily basis, or when trying to figure whether an obscure ingredient name is vegan. Huge thanks to the developers and people making the data necessary behind. Kudos!!! You guys absolutely rock!
