How do you know if something is vegan? Because we’ll tell you!
Vegan is defined as no animal or animal by-products to include flesh, bones, dairy, eggs, honey, fur, leather, wool, down feathers, and cosmetics or chemical products tested on animals.
It may seem obvious that DeeBee’s Organics products made with organic fruit, tea and coconut cream would be vegan, but for our friends that eat a plant-based diet being certified vegan guarantees there are no hidden animal products (or by-products) in any of our Pops or Freezies.
We are certified through Vegan Action, the third-party certifier behind the “Certified Vegan” logo – a registered trademark for products that do not contain animal products or by-products and that have not been tested on animals. The certified logo is easily visible to consumers interested in vegan products and helps vegans to shop without constantly consulting ingredient lists.
The Certified Vegan Standards to which all certified companies must adhere to include:
No Animal Products
Products approved to carry the Certified Vegan logo must not contain ingredients of meat, fish, fowl, animal by-products (including silk or dyes from insects), eggs or egg products, milk or milk products, honey or honey bee products, or be clarified or finished with any animal products.
No Animal Testing
They must involve no animal testing of ingredients or finished product by supplier, producer, manufacturer or independent party.
No Animal GMO’s
They must contain no known animal-derived GMOs or genes used to manufacture ingredients or finished products.
They must provide supplier verification that animal products were not used in the manufacturing of ingredients.
Being Certified Vegan is important to us here at DeeBee’s Organics as part of our mission to inspire and educate consumers through the creation of delicious, nutritious food that helps to grow strong bodies, happy families and a healthy planet. The Certified Vegan Logo is just another way in which we aim to make it easier for everyone to shop for products that Do Good for the world and in a transparent way.
