Is That Meat or Mushroom?

Are you a unicorn? That’s the chosen mascot for the Taipei Vegan Frenzy fair because it’s a peaceful, grass-eating animal.

Don’t argue and say that it isn’t real. Just go along with the symbolism for now.

Taiwan’s has the largest percentage of vegetarians in the world, with 14% vegan or at least vegetarian. As a result, over 6,000 vegetarian restaurants are flourishing in Taiwan.

Taiwanese have embraced vegetarianism for some time, either for religious or health reasons. Now, however, veganism with its focus on animal rights and environmentalism has taken Taiwan by storm via Westerners and Taiwanese who lived abroad.

Vegan steak

Taipei just hosted the second Taipei Vegan Frenzy, a three-day fair promoting veganism. The original purpose was to let vegans know where they could buy vegan products.

But the fair was so popular that it has become a way to educate non-vegans about veganism. Many people don’t realize how many animal products are in products that seemingly have no connection to meat.

For example, did you know that Guinness beer is not vegan-friendly? You’ll have to switch, at least temporarily, to Heineken or Corona which do not use a fish product in the processing. But Guinness has gotten the message and says it will change over and become vegan-friendly as well.

Beers

And be careful if you want to get a tattoo. The ink to make your tattoo might contain a pig bone product to make it last longer. That’s right. Vegan tattoos fade faster, but no animal had to suffer in the process.

You say you’d never try vegan food? Don’t protest too fast. You might already have eaten vegan food and not even realized it. In order to appeal to non-vegans, food is often disguised to look like meat or fish.

Next time you have a steak, you might want to double check whether it’s meat or mushroom.
