question on gelatin, vs. kosher gelatin?

I've never been a huge yogurt fan, but i am so surprised to learn that a food that's usually entirely vegetarian, even, has 'kosher' gelatin added to it. i've seen it in some baked goods too, and wanted to know, does kosher mean it could be plant-based, i mean, come from some other source and not animal? is gelatin always meant that it derives from an animal source?

thanks you guys =)

also - i don't really like the taste of soy, and i'm allergic to all tree nuts. so almond milk is out, but what other non-dairy milks do you guys prefer?

"So it's been a year since this petition has started. We have over 2k total signatures and almost 1,100 Mississippi signatures! But despite repeated contact with Gov. Phil Bryant, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, and all members of the Mississippi House and Senate, no real action has been taken. This petition also has not (to my knowledge) received any attention from the press despite
requests. Please, let's keep up the pressure on this. If you know of anyone who can spread the word, let them know.

I encourage you to write to your State representatives. Contact them via mail, email, phone, Twitter, Facebook, etc. You can find the mailing address and email address for State reps here: <ahref="http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/members/s_roster.pdf>http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/members/s_roster.pdf</a>
and http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/members/h_roster.pdf
