Why the Vegan Diet is Becoming More Popular
All of Blake's Seed Based Snack Bars and Rice Crispy Treats are completely vegan. Our Rice Crispy Treats are also made with the first ever vegan marshmallow!
Over 19 million Americans have switched to a plant-based diet. Veganism is being more prominent in today's society because of not only the health benefits, but because of all of the innovation that brands and restaurants are creating to make the diet more enjoyable and accessible.
The main reason that people become vegan are for the long term health benefits. The diet mainly focuses on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, which contain fiber, antioxidants, and several essential nutrients. The lack of animal products also leads to less saturated and trans fats which can help with obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.
Another reason people become vegan is for environment sustainability. Animal-based diets require more land, water, energy, and resources than plant-based. The production of animal products is also a leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions.
There are now vegan food options everywhere you go. There is an increased demand for vegan products because of the growing popularity of veganism. The vegan food industry is on a growth rate of 8.7% and has a current value of 31.8 billion.
