Lender's Bagels

See this email from a Consumer Insights Representative for Lender's Bagels:

Thank you for taking the time to contact us regarding Lender's® Bagels.
We genuinely appreciate your time and loyalty to our brand. The dough
conditioner in bagels, l-cycsteine is sourced from chicken - chicken
feathers to be exact. This might render the bagels unacceptable for
vegetarian consumption.

It just seems strange that they would use extracts from chicken feathers as a dough moisturizer, how did someone come up with this in the first place?
