Why is pesto not vegetarian?
Pesto is typically not vegetarian because it traditionally includes Parmesan cheese, which is made with animal rennet. Rennet is an enzyme that is made from the lining of calf or lamb stomachs, and is essential in the cheesemaking process. This means that Parmesan cheese is not vegetarian, and since it is a key ingredient in pesto, the dish itself is not vegetarian.
Why is soy sauce not vegetarian?
Soy sauce is not vegetarian because it is traditionally made with an ingredient called “koji,” which is a type of mold that is typically cultivated on grains such as barley or wheat. This process involves using a special fermenting agent called koji-kin, which is made from Aspergillus oryzae, a type of fungus. This fungus is not suitable for vegetarians because it contains animal-derived enzymes. Additionally, many brands of soy sauce also contain fish or other animal derivatives in the form of anchovies, oysters, or bonito flakes, making them not suitable for vegetarians.
