Other Substitutes

Gelatin

Agar-agar and carrageenan (Irish moss) can be used in recipes that call for gelatin. Vegan gelatin mixes are also available, in both flavored and unflavored varieties.

Sweets and Snacks

Vegan retailers carry an assortment of candies, baked goods, and other snacks – though you may find that some of your current favorites just happen to be vegan, too!
