Yes, the type of gelatin used in Jet-Puffed Marshmallows is pork-based. This was confirmed by Kraft, the owner of the brand, several years ago. However, it’s important to note that Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme does not contain gelatin.
If you’re looking for pork-free marshmallow options, some alternative brands to consider include:
- Starmallows: These marshmallows are made with vegetable-based gelatin and are certified Kosher and halal.
- Dandies Marshmallows: These marshmallows are made with organic cane sugar and agar-agar, a plant-based alternative to gelatin.
- Trader Joe’s Organic Marshmallows: These marshmallows are also made with agar-agar and are a good vegan and vegetarian option.
