In a vegan diet, no animal products are consumed at all. It is important that the diet remains complete. A key point is that animal foods are replaced correctly to ensure the diet remains complete. Additionally, vegetarians need more protein than meat-eaters. This is because there is a difference between animal and plant proteins. It is important to eat a varied diet that includes grains and legumes.



A dietitian can help make a vegan diet complete. The focus is particularly on ensuring adequate intake of protein, iron, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, and calcium. These nutrients are primarily found in animal products. To ensure sufficient intake of these nutrients, plant-based alternatives are considered. Examples include plant-based milk/yogurt, vegetables, nuts, and legumes.
