VEGETARIANISM




Vegetarianism is the practice of a diet that
excludes all animal flesh, including poultry,
game, fish, shellfish or crustacea, and any
slaughter by-products.

There are variations that admit dairy products,
eggs and/or products from animal labor such as
honey.

VEGAN
VEGANISM




Veganism in comparison, excludes all animal
products from diet and in some definitions
from attire also, whether or not the
production of clothing or items has involved
actual death of an animal (dairy, eggs, honey,
wool, silk, down feathers, etc.).

A generic term for both Vegetarianism and
Veganism as well as for similar diets is
"Plant-based diets.

OTHER
VEGETARIAN
DIETARY
PRACTICES




Other dietary practices commonly
associated with vegetarianism:


Fruitarianism:
is a diet of only fruit, nuts, seeds,
and other plant matter that can be
gathered without harming the plant.


Macrobiotic die:
is a diet of mostly whole grains and
beans.
Not all macrobiotics are vegetarians
as some consume fish.


Natural hygiene:
in its classic form recommends a diet
principally of raw vegan foods.


Raw veganism:
is a diet of fresh and uncooked fruit,
nuts, seeds, and vegetables.


Dietary veganism:
where vegans don't use animal products
of any kind, dietary vegans restrict
their veganism to their diet.


It should be noted that most vegetarians
also are aware of avoiding products that
may use animal ingredients not included
in their labels or which use animal
products in their manufacturing,
i.e. cheeses that use animal rennet,
gelatin (from animal skin, bones, and
connective tissue), some sugars that are
whitened with bone char (e.g. cane sugar,
but not beet sugar) and alcohol clarified
with gelatin or crushed shellfish and
sturgeon.

VITAMINS
MINERALS




Vitamins are organic substances that are required
in small amounts in the diet. They are necessary
for numerous special functions in the body and
are essential for good health.

They can be affected by environmental conditions
such as light, heat and air.
Food storage, processing and cooking can all act
to reduce the level of vitamins in food.


Vegetarians can obtain all
the vitamins they need from
a balanced diet.

Vitamins may be either:

fat-soluble,

water-soluble.

The fat-soluble vitamins are:

vitamins:

A,

D,

E

K.


Fat-soluble vitamins can be stored in the
body and so dietary sources are not needed
every day.


The water-soluble vitamins are:

vitamin C

B group of vitamins.


The B group of vitamins includes B1, B2, B3,
B6, B12, folic acid, biotin and pantothenic
acid.

The body is less able to store water-soluble
vitamins (with the exception of vitamin B12
which is stored in the liver) and so they
are needed daily.

Water-soluble vitamins are more likely to be
lost during cooking.
