For those who choose to be vegan, living a cruelty-free lifestyle is essential. As opposed to vegetarians who don’t eat meat or meat products but will consume eggs and dairy, vegans consume nothing coming from an animal. This includes eggs, milk and other dairy, and foods with ingredients of animals. Vegans also don’t wear clothing items containing down, fur, or leather or use cosmetics containing animal byproducts or that were tested on animals. While the main food groups not consumed by vegans is universally known, there are some food items that surprisingly contain animal products, though it is not made obvious until you read the ingredients.
