Correspondence from Panda Pops:
Thank you very much for your e-mail.
In answer to your questions, none of our Popzone products contain animal derived products or use animal derived processing aids.
Most of the range contain alcohol at less than 0.1 %. The alcohol, ethanol, is used as a solvent for the flavourings to preserve freshness and make them soluble. This is a legal requirement.
Thank you for your interest.
