Vigo Rice

I've been getting a lot of google hits lately about whether or not Vigo brand rices are vegetarian.

They are NOT. They contain chicken fat and powdered chicken. They are neither vegetarian nor vegan in any way.

Carolina rice (Mahatma on the west coast) makes a saffron yellow rice that is vegan and vegetarian. Regular saffron yellow only. The spicy kind has animal ingredients.

Near east also makes a Mediterranean cous cous curry that is yellow and saffrony and quite good which reads as vegan from the ingredient list.

Both are very tasty if saffron rice is what you crave.
