Exploring nutritional knowledge and practice among UK vegans.

28 January 2020

The purpose of this study is to collect information about the nutritional knowledge, awareness and practice of people following a vegan or exclusively plant-based diet in the UK. As the number of people following a vegan diet rapidly increases, there is a need for better understanding of this diet choice and nutrition. We are interested in the nutritional implications of this choice and want to understand dietary habits and any associated health-related benefits or risks of this lifestyle.
