A vegan person is a person who avoids in his diet all animal products such as beef, poultry, fish, dairy, eggs and even he avoids gelatin and honey.
Vegan diet includes all kind of grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and legumes.
Basically, anyone can follow a vegan diet such as children, teens or even pregnant women.
However, vegan diet lacks some nutrients taken from animal products, such as vitamin B12, iron and zinc found in meat or calcium and vitamin D found in dairies. Therefore, a well-planned vegan diet should be high in fiber, antioxidant and vitamins.
Sources of vitamin B12 can be soy or TVP (Textured vegetables protein), iron can be found in dark leafy vegetables, beans, cereals and dried fruits. Zinc in whole grains and seeds. Calcium in dark leafy vegetables and rice drinks, vitamin D is added in soft margarine and fortified beverages and as for the omega 3 it is found in flax seeds and walnuts.
So, yes we have a broad range of animal product replacements for vegan people and they can even substitute gelatin with agar-agar and honey with maple syrup.
