Booklet:
Is All Animal Flesh Good Food?

Note:
Animal Shortening
Gelatin

Jello, Marshmallows, etc. (usually contain pork-based gelatin), any saltine cracker that states it uses animal shortening (usually lard), and anything else that states it uses animal shortening.
The above is a general list, there are many clean and unclean meats not listed. The booklet "Is All Animal Flesh Good Food?" will give you a good understanding and characteristics of other clean and unclean meats, it is a good rule of thumb to follow.

 

IF IN DOUBT, AVOID ANYTHING NOT SPECIFICALLY LISTED AS CLEAN!
