Despite what they have told you, the originating source of vitamin D3 is either fish oil or lanolin (fat from sheep's wool) and it is not considered vegan, regardless of the processing it goes through. This is the same as dairy-based yogurt starters (probiotics) that are used to make some brands of soy yogurt -- the finished product is still not vegan (even if the nonvegan part is minuscule, microscopic, or otherwise undetectable).

Although there truly are no vegan police (despite rumors to the contrary), if there were, this would not pass inspection. On the other hand, if you prefer to take this brand or other brands with vitamin D3, that's your choice (you will not, I repeat--will not--be arrested).
