      Q What does 'vegetarian' or 'suitable for vegetarians' mean?

      A There isn't a single legal definition of the word 'vegetarian'. This
      means there isn't one set of rules about when a food can be called
      vegetarian.

      So what a 'vegetarian' food does or doesn't contain could vary from
      product to product.

      If a food is labelled vegetarian, this usually means that the food
      doesn't contain any meat or animal-derived additives such as gelatine
      (a gelling agent derived from animal ligaments, skins, tendons, bones
      etc.) In the case of cheese, it usually means that animal-derived
      rennet hasn't been used to make it.
