Are Taco Bell fries vegetarian?
No, Taco Bell fries are not vegetarian. The fries contain beef flavoring, which is derived from beef formed into hydrolysed proteins. Additionally, they also contain dairy products such as nonfat dry milk, cheddar cheese, and whey. While the fries are cooked in vegetable oil, they are cooked in the same fryers as the beef and chicken products, meaning that there could be some cross-contamination. As such, even if the fries themselves do not contain any animal-derived products, they may not be suitable for vegetarians due to potential cross-contamination.
