Milk and milk products are replaced by products made from soya, rice, almond or oat milk. Instead of honey, vegans use maple syrup, sugar beet molasses or agave syrup, and they replace eggs in many recipes with silken tofu.

What are the benefits of a vegan diet?

What are the benefits of a vegan diet? As well as the moral aspect of not living at the cost of animals, many vegans swear by the health benefits. They say that veganism has a positive effect on blood lipid levels and weight. It is also claimed that veganism reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and other lifestyle diseases.

Are there any disadvantages?

By not eating products of animal origin it is possible that iron, calcium or vitamin B12 deficiencies could occur. Therefore vegans should be careful to ensure that they compensate for these deficiencies in their diet or, in the case of vitamin B12, that they take food supplements.
