    Gelatine

    Do you use gelatine for your capsules? Specifically ETS.

    That's an "I don't know" to be frank.

    I'll check with the R&D boys on Monday and get the skinny for you.

    Well my real question is whether it's "suitable for vegetarians". Going by the supplement facts, magnesium stearate and stearic acid can be derived from animal or plant sources.

    The capsules are made of gelatin which is kosher. They are derived from animal products. If you wish to avoid the capsules then you can simply dump the contents.

    Sorry about the delay, I have been quite busy.

    Thanks for the heads up Chris. How about the origin of the magnesium stearate/stearic acid in ETS?
