Why are olives not vegan?
Olives are not vegan because they are traditionally cured in brine, which is a salty liquid that often contains animal-derived ingredients like anchovies or fermented fish sauce. This means that the olives are not only not vegan, but they’re also not vegetarian. While some brands may offer vegan-friendly olives, there’s no guarantee that the olives you find at a store are vegan-friendly. The best way to make sure your olives are vegan is to read the label carefully, and look for any animal-derived ingredients.

Most chocolate is not vegan because it contains ingredients derived from animals, such as milk, butter, and eggs. Milk and butter are used to create a creamy texture, while eggs are often used as an emulsifier to hold the cocoa solids and fat together.

Other plant-based alternatives to traditional Coca Cola such as teas, juices, and energy drinks are available to vegans.
