Before we go into the statistics, it’s essential to understand what it means to be vegan. A vegan’s diet consists of anything that doesn’t come from an animal.
Today, alternatives for these, such as mock meat, rice / almond / oat / soy milk, tofu / seitan, nut yogurts and many more have been found. In response to the increasing interest in vegan diets, more recipes to replace nonvegan foods are becoming available, and more restaurants are serving vegan meals.
It is crucial to note that vegan shopping goes beyond food, as it covers other aspects of lifestyle such as clothing and beauty products. It is a conscious effort taken to help save the animals and the environment. And unlike before, we have so many brands providing vegan alternatives today that it becomes difficult to choose which one to buy! Right from the food we eat to the soaps we use, everything can be bought vegan!
