Is eating yeast vegan?

    Yes, vegans can eat yeast. Yeast is in the fungi family, same as mushrooms, and is not an animal or produced by an animal.

    Yes.  Yeast is not considered an animal product.  It would also be very difficult for a vegan to find food if yeast was not considered vegan, as so much of a vegan diet is carbs and baked goods.

      I don’t agree with your summary on the vegan diet. Vegans eat a large variety of foods, including vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, and seeds, all of which can be eaten without yeast. In fact, I think vegans often tend to be more creative in the kitchen than non-vegans.

    Yes, yeast is vegan as it does not come from an animal. Yeast is actually a fungus, just like molds and mushrooms. It is a eukaryotic organism without chlorophyll, that can be either a single cell or a complex group of cells which contain fruit.

    ^^^ In response to the most recent comment, vegans eat a lot of things that do not contain yeast and/or are not baked goods, like fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, legumes, sauces, and whole grains likes oatmeal, quinoa, or brown rice.

    However, sometimes its good for vegans to eat a particular kind of yeast, like nutritional yeast, for example, which often has the vitamin B12 not commonly found in vegan diets.
