Absolutely essential to have in your shopping bag if you are a Vegan! It has completely opened up our world in enabling us to purchase, with peace of mind, food that we previously thought was out of bounds for us. A must have book and so full of information. Brilliant!

An excellent reference for new & experienced vegans, but by no means an exhaustive list. Definitely worth owning a copy though. Apart from food, it also covers drink (hard & soft), cosmetics and clothing. It also covers more obscure things such as office supplies and musical instruments and even pet supplies.

Rather than something I'd take on a general food shop, I've found that this guide is most useful to me as a reference when I want to buy something specific that I wouldnt find in a supermarket, for example clothing or stationery. The guide does a good job of listing supermarket own brand products, but due to supermarket ingredients lists constantly changing, I find it more efficient to read packaging labels as I go round. To aid in this, the book includes a list of non-vegan additives and ingredients that might not immediately be obvious. All together a comprehensive guide, includes a wide variety of products other than foods.
