Quiz: What’s vegan, what’s not? Surprising foods that aren’t vegan
A vegan-certified multivitamin company has created a quiz on which foods are strictly vegan and which aren’t, so members of the public can test how knowledgeable they are on the increasingly popular lifestyle. The quiz has been created to mark National Vegan Month, with the number of Brits leading a vegan lifestyle quadrupling from 2014 to 2019*. Some questions may trip users up, with surprising foods being revealed as non-vegan.
A vegan-certified multivitamin company has created a quiz on vegan and non-vegan foods, so members of the public can test their knowledge on the increasingly popular lifestyle.
To celebrate National Vegan Month, WeAreFeel teamed up with its nutritionists to create a quiz on foods that meet vegan requirements, and ones that do not.
WeAreFeel has uploaded the quiz to its site for members of the public to complete: https://wearefeel.com/blogs/learn/vegan-food-quiz
Quiz questions ask the user whether popular foods such as avocados and figs are suitable for vegans (spoiler alert! They’re technically not - farmed bees are used in the pollination of avocados, and wasps die in the process of pollinating figs). Users simply select ‘yes’ or ‘no’ when asked whether a food is vegan.
The multivitamin company hopes the quiz will give some insight on what foods are classified as vegan, so those who have already adopted the lifestyle and diet, and those who are thinking about converting, are more informed about what they’re eating.
The number of vegans in the United Kingdom has quadrupled from 2014 to 2019, with 42% of the total British vegan population converting to veganism just last year. Currently it is estimated that there are 600,000 vegans in the UK as of this year.*
WeAreFeel multivitamins contain the appropriate RDA of 33 ingredients: 15 vitamins, 10 minerals, 6 phytonutrients (Spirulina, Reishi Mushrooms, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Turmeric, Grape-seed Extract, BioPerine) and micronutrients Coenzyme Q10 and L-Glutamine. In addition to being gluten, lactose and allergen free, WeAreFeel is certified by the vegetarian society as vegan, as well as Kosher, GMO, and colourant free, and has been reviewed and approved by doctors, nutritionists and dieticians.
WeAreFeel founder, Boris Hodakel, said,
“There are so many benefits to being vegan, many experience an improvement in their health, not to mention the positive impact it has on the environment, so it’s not surprising that so many people are making the switch, even if it’s just for a few days of the week.
“I’m hoping that the quiz we’ve put together will inform people, regardless of whether they’ve adopted a vegan lifestyle yet, on what foods are classified as vegan - it’s amazing how many foods you’d assume are vegan, still contain animal produce, or harm animals in the farming process. I can imagine many users will be shocked by the answers!”
