If it clucks is it vegan?

Written by  Milking It

Is food vegan simply because it doesn’t come from a cow? This question has puzzled one in five Britons.

More and more people are choosing a vegan lifestyle, but a new survey reveals that the concept is still baffling many meat eaters. So much so, that a surprising number of Brits believe eggs and goat milk are suitable for vegans.

The participants in the recent survey were asked which products they believed were vegan and to choose the correct descriptions of certain foods from a list of options.

The results showed that one in five (20%) Brits thought eggs were vegan. Similarly, 22% thought the same of goat milk just because it didn’t come from cows.
