Unfortunately, carmine is not vegan as it comes from an insect called cochineal.
Sara Lee do not guarantee about dough conditioners that they are only from soybean fat, it may be from animal derived fat such as from pork or beef.

Ahmed, Thank you for contacting Johanna Foods, Inc.
We hope we have answered your question to your satisfaction.
