The glycerin in some can potentially be from animal sources. How much of a problem that would be depends who you ask. Some companies are known to use only vegetable glycerin. I think that is noted in the Star-K pesach book

So now that I have hundreds of $ worth of items from target, I just don't feel it's the right thing.

 Is one permitted to take advantage or one should avoid such mistakes?
 Is it a taos or mat'eh acum.

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Boruch Shepotrani?
I'd say you say that when he stops posting.
I'm not who you think I am.

Asked this in a different thread and was told to come here:

Quote
Was going to ask my LOR about this, but figured I'd get the crowd mind's opinion too. A lot of people drink Electrolyte infused drinks prior to a fast. There is a company called NUUN that makes electrolyte tablets that can be used to turn a glass of water into an electrolyte drink. The tablets work like Alka Seltzer. You drop them into the cold water, and within a minute or so they turn the water into gatorade/powerade.

What would the potential issues be with making this on Shabbos?

Was he actually looking to get hired or was he aware of this policy and was looking for a lawsuit... This would not be the first case of its kind.

Assuming he's not a cook, how is he directly Nehene for Boser B'Chalov? The Milk and meat is not his, he's not earning direct benefit from it. He's simply doing a job for a non-jewish boss and that boss pays him. Where the money comes from is not his concern, and the boss as a Goy can benefit from Boser B'Chalav
