Which Products are Vegan or Vegetarian?

USANA makes every effort to avoid ingredients that contain animal by-products. However, it has not been possible to entirely eliminate such ingredients from some USANA products.

Gelatin: The gelatin used for the CoQuinone 30, BiOmega, Palmetto Plus, and E-Prime gelcaps is derived from an animal source. Currently there is not a reasonable alternative to the gelatin used in USANA’s gelcap products. We are aware of companies using vegetable-derived gelcaps, but this technology is not yet sufficient to maintain the standard of quality and stability USANA requires. At present, the vegetable capsules we have researched tend to be very brittle, crack easily, and have a poor shelf life. Current vegetable capsules are also difficult to use in filling machines because of their fragility. The gelatin used in USANA products is certified to be from BSE-free (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy) sources.

  • Glucosamine HCl is found in the Eye Nourisher, Perfecting Essence, Serum Intensive, and Night Renewal products. Glucosamine HCl, which is ultimately derived from chitin, is a compound found in the shells of shellfish. It is highly processed, however, and once it has been extracted and purified it does not contain any residual animal ingredients or protein.
