Breast milk is not vegan because it is an animal byproduct, specifically coming from mammals like cows, goats, or humans. It is the milk that is produced by the mammary glands of the female mammal to feed their young. It contains lactose, saturated fats, proteins, minerals, and other essential nutrients that are essential for the health of the baby. It is not vegan because it is produced by a living animal and thus is not considered vegan-friendly.

“Why isn’t honey vegan?”
Honey is not considered vegan because it is produced by honey bees, which are animals. In order to obtain honey, beekeepers must take honey from the bees that produce it. Even organic and local honey still involves the exploitation of bees, which goes against the vegan philosophy of living with and respecting animals. This practice is considered by some to be animal exploitation, since bees are seen as a sentient species, and the hive is being raided to obtain the honey. Additionally, while bees may produce the honey, it is the beekeeper that is taking the honey from the hive, and the bees have no say in the matter.
Moreover, honey is not vegan because it is a product of bees, which are animals, and their exploitation is not seen as ethical by vegans. In the vegan lifestyle, any type of animal exploitation is considered unethical and should be avoided. Furthermore, honey is a by-product of bees and their labor, so vegans view the taking of honey from bees as a form of stealing from these animals, and thus, not an ethical or vegan practice.
Are french fries vegan?

While some restaurants may offer vegan-friendly fries made without animal products, most french fries are prepared with ingredients that contain animal products, such as animal fat, butter, and eggs.

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!
