Have you added animal bones to your coffee or teas? Maybe a sprinkling of animal bones over your cornflakes?

 

Tate & Lyle website, FAQs state:

 

Q. Are Tate & Lyle sugars and syrups suitable for vegans?

 

A. All of our sugars and syrups are suitable for vegans, except Tate & Lyle Traditional Royal Icing Sugar, which contains egg white.

 

 

All good so far? Until you read this:

 

 

Q. Are your products Halal?

 

A. We currently hold Halal Certification for:

Tate & Lyle Granulated Sugar

Tate & Lyle Caster Sugar

Tate & Lyle Preserving Sugar

Tate & Lyle Icing Sugar

Lyle’s Golden Syrup

Lyle’s Squeezys all flavours

Lyle’s Black Treacle

Lyle’s Maple Pouring Syrup

 

 

How can a large company state that their sugar is suitable for vegans, then state that the sugar is halal certified?

 

 

Tate & lyle website is here: http://www.tasteandsmile.com/faq

 

The same page says it is halal certified and vegan :!:

 

 

edit: animal bones are used in the cleaning / refining of the sugar

Bones are used in some refining processes. For decolourising i think, as sugar cane isnt white. Some refineries, dont use animal products at all, and just bleach it instead.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..
