Oysters are not vegan because they are a type of animal. Vegans do not consume or use any animal products, including animals or any of their byproducts, as part of their diet or lifestyle. Oysters are members of the mollusk family, which encompasses snails, clams, and mussels, and all of these animals are excluded from a vegan diet. Oysters have a range of nutrients and minerals, such as zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, and iron, but they are not vegan-friendly. Additionally, many vegans argue that consuming oysters is unethical because they cannot be farmed in a way that does not cause harm to the animal. Therefore, oysters are not considered vegan.

I’m Brooke, and I love being vegan. I know all there is to know about the vegan lifestyle, and I love sharing that knowledge with others.
I own a vegan restaurant in Boston, and I love helping people make the switch to a plant-based diet. It’s not always easy, but it’s definitely worth it!
