Beaver butts? You mean castor? You probably have eaten it in your all natural vanilla ice cream.

Highly unlikely anyone is eating it.

'total annual national consumption of castoreum, castoreum extract, and castoreum liquid combined is only about 292 pounds, which works out to an average of less than a millionth of a pound per person in the U.S. Compare that figure with the approximately 20 million pounds of vanilla naturally harvested from real vanilla beans every year. Depending upon as scarce a substance as castoreum to flavor the ice cream and candy found on store shelves would create nationwide shortages of those items and drive up their prices beyond the reach of all but the wealthiest consumers.'

It ain't cheap either. I have 2 ounce container of it for my beaver trapping that I think cost about $12.

In other news, I crossed the Sulphur River last night about dark near Texarkana. Rolled the window down to let some air circulate but didn't notice an improved vim and vitality, a renewed pep in my step or pride in my stride and my truck didn't show an improved MPG either. I was sorely disappointed...

It doesn't take a lot of it replace vanilla. Your millionth of pound would still be enough to smell it. :lol:

You missed the point. I am not vegan and I believe their diet is not healthy. It was the fact when people find a company has hidden the fact their fruit is not fruit and grass fed is really not grass pasture fed it will not make the consumer happy.
