In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals.” Vegans do not consume meat, dairy, eggs, or other animal byproducts; do not wear clothing derived from animals, such as leather, fur, and wool; and do not use products containing animal ingredients.
