A vegan (strict vegetarian) does not consume meat, dairy products, eggs, honey, or any product derived from an animal.

Many refuse to use products that are made with animal ingredients, products that are filtered using animal parts (such as some wines, beers, and white sugars), and products that have been tested on animals.
