From the Vegetarian Resource Group of June 2000 http://www.vrg.org/vrgnews/2000jun.htm):
"It came as quite a surprise recently when we learned that Beano, a product touted for its gas relieving abilities, was made with fish gelatin. The gelatin, used as a processing aid and enzyme stabilizer, is an ingredient in both the liquid and tablet forms of the product. It seems odd that they would use an ingredient that would exclude their possible vegetarian customers."
