Veganism is becoming much more popular but for those not following a plant-based diet, it can be hard to get your head around.

Still, most people understand that its basically about not eating anything produced by animals, right?

Well, it seems that a surprising number of people thought goats milk was vegan.

The study, of 2,004 UK adults by meal kit company HelloFresh, found one fifth thought that just because goats milk isnt from cows, it was suitable for vegans.

And its not just older people who dont understand the move towards veganism – 20% of 18-34 year-olds thought vegans can consume eggs.

The study looked into how much Brits know about where their food comes from.

One in 10 adults are under the impression that tofu is a type of mushroom, while a fifth mistakenly think veal comes from a deer – rather than a calf.



11% of those asked think tea is grown in the UK when most of it is shipped from Asia and 4.2% thought bacon comes from cows.

The study also revealed that half of those asked would struggle to cook basic meals like smashed avocado on toast, lasagne or a basic curry.

And 22% are unable to put together a traditional Sunday roast – with 10% of those saying theyve no intention of learning.

HelloFresh head chef Andre Dupin said: Its surprising to see that some of the most popular foods, as well as things that Brits have always held dear to them, are difficult for people to cook from scratch and they struggle with knowing where its from or when its in season.

We found that 61% of Brits didnt know how to cook the national favourite, chicken tikka masala.
