Whether fresh or dried, herbs are an excellent realm of vegan-friendly culinary opportunity. herbs are aromatic leaves and flowers, so they are by their very nature plant-based. Like herbs, spices are generally a safe category for vegans as most of these ingredients are plant-based. Technically, spices should all be vegan-friendly; spices are derived from plant seeds, bark & roots. Because vegan proteins tend to have relatively mild flavour profiles, spices can be an important part of vegan cooking.
On the whole juices & concentrates are vegan-friendly. There are some soft drinks which are not suitable for vegans. A small number contain gelatine (derived from collagen obtained from various animal by-products) & one or two red-coloured ones can contain cochineal (food colouring derived from a species of insect). One thing to look out for in concentrated juice is if it appears to be missing its pulp as this can indicate it may have been distilled through non-vegetarian/vegan ingredients.
