Is It Vegan is a tool for anyone interested in eliminating animal products from their diet.
Simply scan the UPC bar code on the package of any food or beverage product, and you'll see:
Whether the product is vegan, vegetarian, or neither.
A summary classifying the list of ingredients.
A detail list showing which ingredients are vegan, vegetarian, non-vegetarian, etc.
And the original (unclassified) list of ingredients for the product.
After putting each ingredient into a category, Is It Vegan then decides whether the product is suitable for a vegan or vegetarian diet.
Is It Vegan has information on hundreds of thousands of food and beverage products and verifies each of them using a master list containing thousands of pre-classified ingredients.

Ratings and Reviews
Edit: After using it I do see what people mean in the other reviews. It said this bag of Ruffles Cheddar and Sour Cream was Definitely Vegan. And only lists three or four ingredients total. When I looked on the bag there was milk in it. Kind of annoying. Great start for people like myself who are new to looking for vegan and nonvegan ingredients in food. I went to test it out in my kitchen and it only recognized a couple of barcodes. Which was a little disappointing in the way of convenience. But I'm still able to type in the information and find out that way. So it's not too bad.
No more excuses not to read the labels.
You don't have to be vegan or vegetarian to use, and appreciate this app. *No more tiny unreadable mouse print * It will help you to be able to read - and better understand - what ingredients are in the food you buy no matter what your diet is. Reading and being better informed of what is in that so-called food - will help some people make better choices.
I love this app. I have been vegan for almost a year and I am still amazed at how people manage to sneak animal products into things I would never suspect. Being able to scan an item right in the store and get instant feedback cuts back time on label reading as well as teaches me the technical names of certain ingredients I may not otherwise be aware are not vegan friendly. Awesome!
