I'm a pretty shitty vegan. I just found out that apparently Cheerios are no good because they have vitamin D3 which is sourced from lanolin. What are some good Cheerios alternatives that I might find at Hannafords? And more importantly are all forms of vitamin D suspect? For instance, the bread I've been eating says it has vitamin D in it, but it doesn't specify what kind.

here's a good thread about the difference: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=20262&hilit=vitamin+d

basically, D3 is generally not vegan, D2 is. if it's unspecified on something, you can write to the company and ask which kind they use.

For the sake of future Google searchers, I just got a call from Freihofer's, and their Stone Ground 100% Whole Wheat bread is vegan despite having vitamin D.
