Is colocynth vegan?

Colocynth is a bitter fruit commonly found in the Mediterranean region, with a long history of use in traditional medicine. While not typically consumed directly due to its intensely bitter taste, it is valued for its medicinal properties and is often used as a natural laxative. The pulp of the fruit is sometimes incorporated into herbal remedies or used as a flavoring in small amounts in certain dishes, particularly in North African cuisine. However, due to its toxicity, it should only be used under the guidance of a trained professional.

Colocynth is a vegan food ingredient.
