Bakery chain Greggs made headlines last week with its new vegan sausage roll, and even Pizza Hut is offering a special vegan pizza this month. But is it actually healthy to follow the restricted diet longer term? The answer is it depends on what kind of vegan diet you eat. One study found that people who stuck to a plant-based diet including lots of wholegrains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, pulses and vegetable oils were less likely than average to develop heart disease. But those who ate a vegan diet high in sugar and processed foods were actually 32 per cent more likely to be diagnosed with heart disease than meat-eaters. Clearly, making your own vegan meals from scratch is one thing. But do the vast variety of supermarket offerings follow the rules of healthy plant-based eating, or would the meat version be better? But most of them are ultra-processed factory products, the polar opposite of real, wholesome food. They remind me of Dulux paint: the same basic mixture with a little bit of this and that squirted in. The first ingredient in the majority of these phony concoctions is water.
Veganism is all the rage right now. A vegan or plant-based diet includes no animal products. So meat, dairy, eggs, honey, and gelatin are off the cards. A vegan lifestyle spans a little further than diet, also including non-food animal products like wool, leather, and animal-tested beauty products. Major companies are keen to profit from the rising number of people who prefer plant-based products. KFC U. Burger King experienced a surge in sales thanks to its vegan burger launch. The American fast-food chain introduced an Impossible Whopper in April. The launch was quickly followed by a 28 percent increase in sales. The product was trialed in 59 restaurants but after high demand, Burger King decided to roll the burger out to its more than 7, restaurants.
