Vegan is a step ahead of being a vegetarian. They not only avoid eating meat, but they also avoid eating or using anything from the animal kingdom. They do not even consume milk, eggs or any dairy products. They look into all the details of the ingredients before buying a product. Bread, marshmallows, chewing gums, salad dressing, mayonnaise all of which contain some animal products that are not consumed by vegans. They are very strict about their diet. Their doctrine is saying No cruelty to animals. Many of the processed foods, sauces, ketchup, salad dressings, cereals, and crackers contain artificial sweeteners.

If you plan to start a vegan diet or a gluten-free diet, see that you find suitable alternatives to get the needed minerals and vitamins for your body.
