Is It Vegan is a tool for anyone interested in eliminating animal products from their diet. Simply scan the UPC bar code on the package of any food or beverage product, and you'll see: Whether the product is vegan, vegetarian, or neither. A summary classifying the list of ingredients. A detail list showing which ingredients are vegan, vegetarian, non-vegetarian, etc. And the original (unclassified) list of ingredients for the product. After putting each ingredient into a category, Is It Vegan then decides whether the product is suitable for a vegan or vegetarian diet. Is It Vegan has information on hundreds of thousands of food and beverage products and verifies each of them using a master list containing thousands of pre-classified ingredients. Users now have the option to upload products, making our database larger than ever! Notice: Data on products outside the USA is extremely limited at this time. For best results, please scan food products from the USA. iOS 6.0+ is required to use this app!



  • App closes every time I scan

    By KimPrucha
    I bought the 4.99 version and it shuts down every time I attempt to scan a barcode. I'm using an iPhone 6. I'm very disappointed.
  • Love this

    By Bugeater327
    As a fledgling vegan, this application has been invaluable when shopping at the grocery store!
  • Not a good app

    By Hazelhaven
    I bought this thinking it might be more useful than the free version. Nope. It has very few actual products in its database and is inaccurate. Certified vegan products are in the red zone? I'll stick with reading labels. It's a good idea- but it needs more work.
  • Love this app but plz update!!!

    By Esmegrl
    I too have iPhone 6 and the app keeps crashing. I really appreciate the work it must have taken to get this app going. Many vegans would appreciate an update. Thnx!
  • Definitely a great app for vegans and vegetarians

    By Mitttsh
    I've bee looking for such an app for a long time. I've been vegetarian for a very long time and vegan as much as possible for a couple of years now. This apps is very helpful on a daily basis, or when trying to figure whether an obscure ingredient name is vegan. Huge thanks to the developers and people making the data necessary behind. Kudos!!! You guys absolutely rock!
  • Neat little application.

    This app needs to be updated very soon - it's starting to slow down my phone (iPhone 6) because it's not compatible with the current iOS. Other than that, it's excellent. The database isn't very large yet, but the app makes it easy to add products for review when an unknown product comes up. It also allows us to choose if sugar is vegetarian or vegan, which is a nice feature. After using the free version for about a year, I decided to upgrade to support the app. There's not many similar ones out there, and this one is the most user friendly and simple without killing my phone's battery.
  • Only works about half the time

    By *VegJen*
    It knows the product but says all the ingredients are unknown if they are vegan. We are talking about things like potatoes. Not reliable at all. Other times it works fine. Would not recommend paying for it until it is fixed.
  • Go vegan

    All I keep getting is a connection error. It's getting annoying PLEASE FIX
  • It doesn't do anything

    By more JOY everywhere!
    Just tried this on 3 different products. Only one was in its database. The other two I tried to take pictures of and I got a connection failure. The one it did register was listed as "probably vegan" but all of the ingredients were plant based and it is a known vegan product. Wish I'd downloaded the free version.
