What kind of veg*n do you consider yourself? I have never posted a poll before, so hopefully this works..if it doesn't--don't laugh at me for too long!



I gave the option of "omni" because some people come here to view as guests...I think (?)

Ovo-lacto Vegetarian - scaling way back on the lacto and the ovo comes from a small, sefl-sustaining farm where they have to go egg hunting 'cause the chickens don't have a coop!



But I do have to ask ... Are there vegans who don't eat yeast?



I've heard, of course, of abstaining from honey - but yeast?

I'm confused. What would be non-vegan about eating yeast?

I can't think of anything that would be wrong with it either.

I'm ovo-vegetarian by definition... but I only eat the eggs that we produce on our own farm (we have approximately 40 laying hens)



I'm slowly but surely working my way towards vegan. Go me!

I have a vague recollection of "mr. Yeast", i.e. people tried to use an imaginative way to describe yeast (for some purpose). Maybe that has caused some confusion for vegans.



(Note: yeast isn't actually a real little person in food, if someone thinks so.)

I consider myself to be vegan, but I do eat yeast. I do not voluntarily eat honey unless there is no other option -- which is very rare.

Um, I'm vegan, but I do eat yeast. ^^;;



I do fall off the wagon occasionally, (although it's becoming more and more rare!) but I call myself vegan because that's the path I'm on and the goal I'm pursuing. The dairy slip-ups are on their way out!

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

I'm ovo-lacto, but I'm seriously working on becoming totally vegan. I'm doing very well w/ it actually, but I can't say I'm vegan yet. Gimme a month or 2, and I'll be completely vegan!

I'm officially a schmegetarian, but ovo-lacto is a good way to describe me as well.

I'm vegan. Though I have little or no concern regarding hidden animal ingredients. Yeast is not an animal product.

Lacto vegetarian, though I usually prefer to eat very little dairy...

and if there are traces of egg in my food, fine, but I don't eat eggs outright and rarely bake with them.

FR, yes there are groups that consider yeast a living organism (which it is) and put it under the catetgory of animal.



I'm an omni. I eat veg 95% of the time. Used to be a off- and on- lacto-ovo and did a stint as a vegan.

Well it is true that yeast is a living organism, it is not an animal. Plants are living organism's yet they are not part of the animal kingdom. Yeast falls into neither the animal or plant kingdom. I have seen products carry the certified vegan symbol that contain yeast.

Yeast is a fungus. A single-celled fungus. If we didn't eat living organisms, you could scratch all plants off the list too! Those people are silly.



I'm lacto-ovo beginning shift to more vegan diet. Not entirely possible right now to eliminate all dairy/eggs due to eating at the school meal hall, but I'm trying to cut down and develop a taste for soymilk and other vegan lovelies

there should be a "strict vegetarian" option.



there is no reason why a vegan wouldn't eat yeast. otherwise vegans shouldn't wash their hands either.
