Among the plethora of changing food habits, veganism is slowly and steadily gaining immense popularity among the Indians for various reasons. To understand them let’s first find out what exactly is veganism?

Vegans are often confused with the vegetarian way of eating, but veganism is a more explicit form of vegetarianism. It is a dietary choice which excludes dairy and meat and consists of fruits, vegetables, nuts, oils, and gluten only. Vegans refrain from consuming any product or by-product derived from animal or animal skin.

Religion may play a crucial role in the inclination towards veganism. Several religions promote the ‘holy cow’ or ‘holy animal’ notion which further eliminates animals from becoming a part of the ‘Indian food diet’. Studies have shown that veganism contributes to reducing the risk of obesity, heart diseases, cholesterol and even Type 2 diabetes. Veganism excludes dairy products like cheese, ghee, butter which are inherently fattening. Hence, adopting veganism can help in having a healthier lifestyle.
