V8 Juice Illegal It has tomato paste listed as an ingredient. Elaine has listed tomato paste as being illegal. It is also made from concentrate and has added sugar.
Vanillin But not in concentrated form see Vanillin
Vegetable stearate I believe that stearate is always a fat (stearic acid) so vegetable stearate would be a fat from some vegetable like coconut, etc. -- Elaine
Vegetables (canned) Illegal Canned vegetables are not permitted; they must either be fresh or frozen.
Vinegar Red and white wine vinegar also white and cider vinegars are allowed but check the label for added illegals. Balsamic vinegar is not allowed as it has added sugar. However you can make your own legal balsamic vinegar substitute see scdrecipe
Vodka Only have it occasionally.

I followed the SCD for ONE MONTH, and I never had another problem with my stomach. Never. Ever. I was even able to resume a normal diet after that month. Whatever healing magic the diet works has been permanent in my case. I am now 3 years past those horrifying experiences. Try it. The book costs a few bucks but the diet itself is free. You have nothing to lose but the suffering. I am now able to live the life of a normal, carefree 27-year-old.
