Baf­fled Bri­tons think ve­g­ans can’t eat veg

The Mail on Sunday - - News -

A QUAR­TER of Bri­tons think that be­ing ve­gan means you can’t eat vegeta­bles, ac­cord­ing to new re­search.

Bizarrely, some 27 per cent reckon that ve­g­ans can’t eat fruit while six per cent think they CAN eat fish.

Even ve­g­ans them­selves are con­fused – with 15 per cent think­ing it’s fine to eat but­ter; 13 per cent say­ing they still en­joyed eat­ing eggs; and 14 per cent still hav­ing cheese.

The UK has 550,000 ve­g­ans who refuse to eat any food con­tain­ing an­i­mal prod­ucts.

The sur­vey of 1,000 peo­ple, by Meerkat Meals, found that one in five Bri­tons has con­sid­ered go­ing ve­gan.
