Plant-based vs vegan: what’s the difference? More and more foods are labelled as vegan or plant-based, but they aren’t necessarily the same thing By Shefalee Loth23 Jan 2021 Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare by email You might assume food described on the packaging as plant-based is perfect for your ‘Veganuary’ diet, but this isn’t always the case. There are many similarities between vegan and plant-based diets, but there is also one key difference. People following a vegan diet cut out all animal products – they don’t eat meat, poultry, fish, dairy or eggs. Vegans also avoid foods containing animal-derived products like gelatin, and some even avoid honey as it is made by bees.
