    unfortunately, I just finished baking two pumpkin pies for tomorrow... then realized that since they contain refined sugar they can't be included in the feast :( So sorry about that! I still don't know what I'll make instead. Maybe stuffing.

      Here's a link to the bone char free sugars produced by US companies. Just scroll down to the table at the end of the article: http://www.vrg.org/jo...­

      Hi Angela- Thanks for the list! That should come in handy.

    Does refined sugar contain animal products?

    November 17, 2012

    • Donna

      Not really, but many sugars are bleached with animal bone char. Many fair trade certified sugars are processed in a way suitable for vegans, just check the package. Sucanat is dehydrated sugar cane juice and is a nice substitute for most refined sugar.

    I bought some vegan stuffing mix from whole foods I can bring. It's impossible for me to eat it all, so I'd rather share the bounty!
